Take A Ghost Tour And Eat A Three-Course Dinner At Hotel Galvez In Texas
It’s no secret that Texas has an extensive haunted history, but very few people have experienced it firsthand. The iconic Hotel Galvez lets you do just that with a monthly ghost tour and three-course dinner. Explore the 100-year-old building, hear about all the tragedies that have unfolded within its walls, and delight in a scrumptious meal prepared by expert chefs.
Constructed in 1911, Hotel Galvez has been around for over a century. That's plenty enough time to acquire a ghost story or two, and this place has enough for a novel.
Many years ago, a young newlywed stayed in the hotel while awaiting her fisherman husband's return from sea. In a tragic turn of events, she received some gut-wrenching news the very day he was scheduled to dock for their honeymoon.
He perished in a shipwreck, making the woman a widow before her marriage truly even began. Stricken with grief, she hung herself in the hotel room, unable to bear the thought of going on without her soulmate.
Nicknamed "The Lovelorn Lady" by guests, she's doomed to roam these halls for the remainder of eternity. If you smell the faint scent of floral perfume with no apparent source, you'll know she's near.
Hundreds of other paranormal encounters have been documented within these walls; far too many to list, in fact. You'll learn about many of them on the tour as a knowledgeable guide leads participants down the most haunted passageways.
Being scared sure works up an appetite, so luckily there will be a three-course dinner waiting for you after the tour. Grab a seat, enjoy good conversation with newfound friends, and dig into a delicious meal (maybe with several glasses of wine thrown in, as well - a necessity to decompress from all the fright.)
Hotel chefs put their expert skills to work and whip up gourmet culinary masterpieces. While the exact menu varies month-to-month, nobody ever leaves the table unsatisfied.
Looking to extend your stay overnight? Brave souls can book the Lovelorn Lady's final resting place: Room 505. Turn off the lights, and you just might hear the ceiling creak...almost as if a noose were straining under the dead weight of a corpse.
