For a different perspective on the state’s spirited past and present, consider a ghost tour in Mobile, Alabama. On the Mobile Ghosts tour, you’ll hear spooky stories about Alabama’s oldest city as you stop at six different sites. That’s a fitting number considering one of the town’s nicknames is the City of Six Flags.
Before your mind goes to the theme park (mine did), stop right there. Did you know that the flags of six different ruling governments flew over the city from its founding in 1702 to 1861? That long period of conflict alone could give rise to a haunted history. Regardless of whether you pick up any ghost stories of your own, you’re guaranteed to gain some knowledge on this tour.
