Haunted Pub Crawl of Fells Point  

img haunted crawl thumbThe CLEC Host Committee has arranged a haunted pub crawl for interested attendees. Baltimore has always been a drinking town with a dark underbelly. For centuries, travelers and locals alike come to Fells Point to quench their thirst in the many notorious pubs, inns, and taverns. Come out drinking on a two-hour pub crawl (visting three bars) with the ghosts: a nurse who still cares for her patients even after her own demise; the street-wandering spectre of one of Fells Point's founders and namesake; some of the many "working girls" still plying their trade; or a bootmaker still stomping around one of America's oldest saloons.

This tour is limited to adults (21+) only. The tour starts at 7 p.m. and is only $22 for CLEC attendees. Space is limited so sign up now at: Baltimore Haunted Pub Crawl of Fells Point. Tour is operated by Baltimore Tours & Crawls.
