Why is Phoenix So Haunted?

Phoenix was built by outlaws, cowboys, and gold miners, and their spirits are just dying to see you! But before the gold mines and cowboys, the Valley of the Sun was inhabited by the Hohokam tribe, who left behind extensive irrigation channels that are still used today to divert water to Southern Arizona. At the time of European conquest, the Spanish claimed the area, but they settled further south, establishing a settlement that would later become Tucson.

 

The history of modern-day Phoenix began during the Civil War when Union and Confederates both laid claim to the territory. After the war, mining towns were established in the area, and new settlers saw good potential for farming. Phoenix grew amidst the backdrop of the Wild West, with outlaws, gunslingers, cowboys, and Indigenous tribes battling it out with law enforcement officers and the federal government.

Lizzie Borden Tour

 

Today, Phoenix is often touted as one of the best places to live in America, but the city has a much-overlooked spooky side. The ghosts of the gold miners and outlaws still haunt this desert metropolis. People sleep on the ghosts of Arizona, but in reality, the haunts of the American Southwest rival classics like Salem or Savannah. 

Consequently, it’s one of the most haunted houses in the city. There’s also the Hermosa Inn, haunted by the spirit of cowboy artist Lon Megargee. And don’t miss out on the Hotel San Carlos! This hotel was doomed from the very beginning when a young woman committed suicide by jumping from the top floor. The deserts of Arizona hide some dark secrets, and they’re waiting to be discovered! So book your Phoenix ghost tour with Lizzie Borden Ghost Tours and have a hauntingly great time!

Why should you tour with us?

You want something fun to do now that the sun has gone down

One of the best things to do in Phoenix is to stay cool! Luckily for you and us, we guide people through the unnerving and morbid history of the city at night. While temperatures can remain high in the evening, it still beats getting massacred by the sun all day. Save your energy for the night and join us on a haunted Phoenix tour.

Icon
You love hearing about haunted trails

The Superstition Mountains and the trails surrounding The Valley of The Sun hold ghost stories waiting for you to discover. But, before you go out and face the wilderness, hang out with us in the city. Get a basis of what makes the pallid past of Phoenix so bizarre before you hit the haunted trails!

Icon
You want to do something that will be fun for the whole family

Dad’s golfing, Mom’s shopping, the kids are lounging by the pool. But what do you do after the sun goes down? Why not join us after a nice meal at one of the many world-class restaurants in Phoenix or before a night at one of the dozen theatres that call the city home? Our tours are one of the more unique things to do in Phoenix for the whole family!

Icon
You're a night owl and a lizard person

No, we don’t mean that kind of lizard person. You like dry air and the night sky. Hey, we hear you! Our tours are the perfect way to enjoy the desert at night, one of the most mystical experiences on planet Earth. A ghost tour is one of the best things to do in downtown Phoenix and a great way to soak up the desert air.

Golf really isn't your thing

The greater Phoenix Metro Area is home to over one hundred golf courses! If that's not your thing, don’t fret. Join us, your fellow lovable, paranormal weirdos, on a bone-chilling, spine-tingling ghost tour through downtown Phoenix. It’s cheaper than a tee time, educational, and spooky fun for everyone.
