The Wandering Souls of Charleston

It is said there are ghosts in Charleston, restless souls wandering in a nebulous in between world. There are some people who have actually seen them, and certain places are known for sightings.

You can take a ghost tour in the evening, or wander the lamp lit streets at night on your own, if you dare. But tonight there are sure to be ghosts, ghouls and goblins on the streets and cobblestoned alleyways of Old Charleston,

 for it is Halloween.
