Why is Corpus Christi So Haunted?

In Sparkling City by the Sea, the sun might set on the beach, but the ghosts never sleep. From the early days of tribal clashes with the indigenous Karankawas to the pivotal battles of the Civil War, Corpus Christi’s history reads like an action-packed saga of conflict and conquest.
Whether fighting off European colonization or defending its shores in WWII, this city has always been at the center of the action—and the ghosts of its tumultuous past still roam the streets where they once lived, loved, and died to this day.

But Corpus Christi isn’t just a battleground for wars – it’s also a battleground against Mother Nature herself. From devastating hurricanes that reshape the coastline to deadly epidemics like yellow fever, the city has faced its fair share of natural disasters that left permanent scars on the land and its people.
So, what’s left behind after all this turmoil? A city brimming with vibrant culture, a thriving music scene, and a ghostly reputation for being haunted by the spirits of its storied past. Join our Corpus Christi on a journey through the city’s conflicts and calamities, where you’ll uncover the most bizarre secrets of a city shaped by its turbulent history over an unforgettable walking tour.

Why should you tour with us?

You Spent All Day Napping on the Beach

Is there anything better than stretching out on your beach towel and dozing off for a little afternoon siesta? A relaxing beach day can leave you with way too much energy when night rolls around. Take advantage of the fact that you probably won’t be falling asleep again anytime soon, and join Corpus Christi Ghosts for a fun evening out exploring the city while enjoying a perfect mix of local history and terrifying tales that might keep you awake even longer than you expected.

Icon
You’re Ready for an Adrenaline Rush

Corpus Christi has some truly relaxing attractions, from the aquarium to the botanical gardens, and while those can be both fun and fascinating, too many laid-back activities in a row can start to make your vacation feel a little too chill. Spice your evening up with a thrilling walking tour that’s sure to get your heart racing as you imagine the tragic events playing out in the very locations you’ll be visiting.

Icon
You Prefer a Different Kind of Nightlife

If you’re looking to dance the night away, Corpus Christi has plenty of nightclubs where you can find a good beat and a strong drink. But if pounding bass and crowded dancefloors just aren’t your thing, we’ve got you covered! Set out with a small group to enjoy the night air and historic buildings while learning the true stories of heartbreak, murder, and tragic deaths that led to this becoming one of the most haunted cities in Texas.

Icon
You Need a Break From the Spring Break Crowd

If you’re here during one of the busiest times of the year, it’s easy to start craving a little peace and quiet, even if you usually love the party scene. What’s quieter than the dead? (Okay, that’s a bad example since the dead here tend to be pretty noisy.) Escape the crowds and join a small group led by a knowledgeable guide to be fascinated by “stranger than fiction” local history and suspenseful stories of real ghost encounters.

Icon
You Love Sharing Stories, Too

Let’s be honest: you’re probably going to be sharing photos from your trip on social media. Beach photos are fun, but a photo of a haunted house with a snippet of its terrifying history that you learned on our tour? That’s quality content.

Most Haunted Places in Corpus Christi, TX

USS Lexington

Also known as the “Blue Ghost,” the USS Lexington aircraft carrier stands as a spectral sentinel on the seas, a silent witness to bygone battles. But the eerie nickname isn't the only thing spooky about this ship; it also holds whispered tales of ghostly encounters and strange events that defy explanation.

Old Bayview Cemetery

With a history steeped in valor and sacrifice, this military cemetery stands as a solemn sanctuary for veterans who lived and died in the line of duty. Today, it remains a hallowed ground where the restless spirits of those who gave their all for freedom and liberty continue to roam.

House of Rock

Since 2005, House of Rock has been a cornerstone of the local scene, serving up mouthwatering pizzas and ice-cold craft beers. But long before it became the go-to spot for a night out in the city, it was once a makeshift morgue for the town's dearly departed, with some still roaming its dimly lit corridors to this day.
