Port Washington Ghost Walk

Port Washington Ghost Walks are a fun way to celebrate the spooky Halloween season. October 27th and 28th, you can spend an evening hearing the spirited experiences of the residents of Port Washington.

Every walk explores ghost stories and sightings in the historic downtown and haunted Union Cemetery in paranormal Port Washington. Tours take about 2 hours total.

This year… if you want an extra special experience… Join them for an actual GHOST HUNT! The 10:15 tour each night will be an extended version and exploration of the
final destination!
Over the years, a number of ghost walkers have reported activity in our final stop of the night. This year, we’re going to spend a bit more time there. Break out your equipment or borrow some of ours and see what you catch.

The 7:30, 8:00 and 9:45 ghost walks focus on the downtown and cemetery.

Port Washington is easily accessed from I-43 via Highway 32 or 33; Highway 57 is just to the west.
