San Diego is one of America’s oldest settlements, dating back to the 1500s. The Kumeyaay peoples lived in the area for hundreds of years before the arrival of the Europeans. Their villages would become the backbone of the future settlement of San Diego, laying the foundation for the historic district of Old Town. The Spaniards, Mexicans, and Americans all fought for control of the city, and the spirits of the early settlers still roam the sun-washed streets to this day. The Spaniards first arrived from Baja, California, looking to convert local Indigenous tribes to Catholicism. But the Kumeyaay fought back, forcing the Spanish to relocate several times. After the Mexican Revolution, San Diego became part of the territory of Alta California. Still, tensions with the Natives forced many Mexicans to leave. America began eyeing California, and after the Mexican-American War, Mexico attempted to keep San Diego but was forced to hand it over to the US. The city later became a flashpoint for the labor movement as strikers faced intense violence and litigation from anti-union forces.

Today, San Diego is a sunny seaside paradise, known for its lovely weather and affluent residents. But the city has a dark side, where ghosts and spirits rule San Diego’s afterlife. The Whaley House is the creepiest haunted house in town, having been the scene of a bloody suicide many years ago. And if you’re looking for a place to stay, the Horton Grand or the Cosmopolitan Hotel might have a few vacancies, but you’ll be sleeping alongside some spooky spirits. Or maybe graveyards are your thing? If so, take a stroll through the Julian Cemetery, which is known for all sorts of supernatural events. San Diego is more than a pretty beachside town. There’s plenty of haunts to keep you on your toes. So make to book your San Diego ghost tour today at!
