Ghostly Gadabouts

Swimmers and sunbathers aren’t the only people moaning for their Vineyard summers to begin. There’s also the plethora of Island ghosts who habitually haunt the downtown streets of the Vineyard. But they are a shy lot, often passing unseen, through and around you.

Thankfully, for the living, the folks at Vineyard Ghosts Walking Tours know the scoop on where the past continues to haunt the present. The full summer schedule is about to begin. Starting June 18, the family-friendly tours explore Oak Bluffs every Monday, starting outside Secret Garden on Circuit avenue, Edgartown on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, starting at the park next to Edgartown Books, and Vineyard Haven on Thursday nights (and Friday nights, starting July 6), starting at the clock, at 44 Main street.

All tours begin at 8 p.m. and cost $10 per adult and $5 for kids.
