What are some other haunted destinations in North Carolina?

North Carolina is brimming with paranormal activity. While cemeteries are well-known places to spot a ghost in the Tar Heel State, you’ll be amazed by just how many other spots throughout the state are equally as haunted. In fact, we’ve even put together a road trip that will take you to the most haunted places in North Carolina. One of the most notorious locations on this trip is the Omni Grove Park Inn located in Asheville, North Carolina. This beautiful hotel in the mountains is home to the Pink Lady who, according to legend, fell from a 5th-story room to her death. Over the past decades, visitors have spotted her ghost roaming the halls. Fortunately, she is said to be good-natured and especially friendly to children. She has a particular fondness for pranks and, apparently, if you stay the night in Room 545, you might just notice some of your belongings moved around.

As mentioned above, the Omni Grove Park Inn is perhaps the most famous haunted hotel in North Carolina, but there are definitely some others.
