Guns, ghosts and gangsters, oh my! Depicting the seedier side of the Windy City’s history, Weird Chicago Tours is one of the coolest ways to learn more about the city’s fascinating–and often creepy–past. Your family will thank you when you opt for the “Devil & the White City” tour rather than sitting them down to watch one of those dreadfully dull documentaries. And with lively storyteller guides, the kids will be hopped up on the excitement and mystery that surrounds the spooky places you’ll visit together. Climb aboard the tour bus and watch in amusement as the kids’ rapt attention is solely focused on the macabre stories as they unfold. While you might cringe and grimace at some of the details surrounding the “Murder Castle” of serial killer H.H. Holmes, the little ones will be filled with nervous excitement–and more than a little proud of themselves for being brave enough to handle it all. Hand over the camera for a change and let them be in charge of documenting your historical adventure. Who knows what spooky and paranormal evidence might appear in the pictures they take.
