Join the Athens Welcome Center for a spooky walking tour through downtown and North Campus. Jeff Clarke and Caitlin Short join the tour guide staff for this special seasonal tour and  friends from UGA Special Collections Libraries will cover North Campus. There are plenty of ghost stories here, revealing the back stories of historic landmarks and little-known lore of Athens people and places. Just be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes and bring an umbrella in case of rain. Tours will depart rain or shine. On-site parking is limited, so park downtown and walk to the Welcome Center where the tour begins. 

The tours end at Creature Comforts Brewery...Just in time for a tasting and tour (admission not included in tour ticket price).

Tickets are $15 per person and can be purchased online at www.athensclarkeheritagefoundation.bigcartel.com. All proceeds support the educational mission of Classic City Tours, a component of the Athens-Clarke Heritage Foundation.
