Haunted Alton Cruises

Have you ever wanted to know why Alton, Illinois, the city nicknamed the “Most Haunted Small Town in America,” is so haunted? Come on aboard a haunted evening cruise on the Mississippi River this October to hear the ghoulish stories of Alton.

A sordid past of murder, war, death and destruction has led to Alton’s haunted present. Through the years, many travelers have investigated and inquired about the unexplained happenings and psychic phenomena found throughout Alton. Several locations that are noted to be extremely haunted, including the infamous McPike Mansion and Milton School, have been featured on television shows on the Travel Channel and Syfy Channel.

The haunted tours offered this year will be on a 49-passenger excursion boat from Grafton River Adventures. This ghostly tour will last 90 minutes with a tour guide pointing out haunted locations along the Mississippi River and providing details as to what makes Alton so haunted. Stories include traumatic events such as the murder of Elijah Lovejoy, the city being the home of the old prison that housed thousands of Confederate soldiers, Alton’s ties to Al Capone’s boat and more. There are also Haunted Grafton cruises available in early October and late October.

For more information or to make reservations, call (800) 258-6645. Tickets may also be purchased in person at the Alton Visitor Center, located at 200 Piasa St. in Downtown Alton.
