took this tour of northside ghosty locations yesterday with family and friends. this was the second time we’ve gone on one of the tours having taken the southside tour last year. our guide, dale kascmarek is extremely knowledgeable and a great driver. he came to pick eleven of us up in a passenger van which is wired with speakers all the way in the back so he can be heard by everyone on his mic as he explained the locations and stories behind them. the tour usually take roughly four hours but last night took a little longer because we got stuck in city traffic a couple of times. he took us to the st valentine’s day massacre site, graceland cemetery, rosehill cemetery robinson woods and other locations, each time giving us a full explanation of each place and the stories behind them. there were several spots where we could get out of the van and take pictures which was very cool. dale welcomes all questions and is friendly and accommodating. the only down side is that with the traffic and all, it did get a little long but that wasn’t his fault. saturday night in the city is like that. i’d recommend the south side tour over the north side one though only because there are more “get off the bus” locations and just more locations in general. we’re going again next year 🙂 .
