Bowling Green, Ohio may be home to Bowling Green State University, but it also offers numerous tours around this beautiful city. These may be self-guided or even group tours that can be booked through the Bowling Green Convention & Visitors Bureau.

wchc-3One of the most intriguing self-guided tours is The Dark Tour, which can take all day or all night, and offers a look at all of the allegedly haunted locations in Bowling Green. Infamous stops include Wood County Historical Museum, with its Lunatic Asylum on site where tour passengers can revel in tales of scratching at barred windows, the piano playing on its own, and footprints appearing in the floor varnish. Or perhaps motorcoach passengers would be interested in one of the four stops on BGSU’s campus, or a drive through Holcomb Woods where there are ghostly tales of a bus driver’s face appearing in a tree that killed him upon impact.
