Phantom Opportunities

Supernatural happenings and ghostlike orbs aren’t just reserved for Halloween — they can be found year-round, even in Lawrence. Brave souls can take Ghost Tours of Kansas when ghost hunters meet at the Eldridge Hotel (701 Massachusetts, Lawrence, 785-749-5011), a rumored hot spot for paranormal activity, at 8 p.m. “The Eldridge is one of the more haunted locations on the Lawrence tour, and patrons enjoy seeing the picture of the ghost in the elevator that is believed to be Col. Eldridge,” says Cathy Ramirez, amateur investigator and organizer of Ghost Tours of Kansas LLC. The Eldridge is one of 10 to 12 haunted stops where patrons can explore and take photos. The tour runs about two hours and includes transportation to each site. The cost is $17, and no one younger than 12 is admitted. Call
785-851-0856 for more information.
