Tip 1: Plan Your Ghost-hunting Trip
Start by doing a little research on your local area to find out if there are places that are known for ghosts. Then, decide whether that particular location is safe for your family to venture out into and if possible conduct your tour during the daytime. You will also want to consider the level of scariness of the location that you will be visiting and whether it is appropriate for the children that you will be taking with you. A good place to start is local museums, old hotels, historical sites, and churches – many of which will have ghost tours if they are known for being haunted.
Tip 2: Get Excited
The best part about a ghost-hunting trip besides the trip itself is the building anticipation that your family will have when you discuss what you may experience. Spend some time really talking about the ghosts that you will encounter and what type of experience you think it will be. This is also a good time to read books about hauntings or spooky stories by candlelight!
Tip 3: Partner Up
If you have a large family, group family members together if you decide to venture in different directions. However, be certain to assign a much older sibling or parent as the leader of each group. It is their responsibility to keep track of everyone in their clan, and they should be armed with a cell phone in case they need to contact another group leader or in case of an emergency.
