Olde Towne Ghost Walk
The Olde Towne Ghost Walk is a 40-year-old walking tour based on the Jack-the-Ripper Walks in London, where you will learn about the haunting history of Olde Towne. Stretching over 20 blocks, you will encounter reenactors along the way, who dare to tell the ghostly tales of a time long since passed.
Visit the Children’s Museum of Virginia to enjoy reimagined holiday exhibits, such as the Eye Spy scavenger hunt, Sock Skating, and a visit with Santa in the “Santa Hut.” Walk over to the Portsmouth Art & Cultural Center to enjoy the nostalgic Coleman Collection re-envisioned.
