About this event

On this 2-mile walking tour, you'll discover "spirited" spots in historic Covington, hear about ghostly visitations, and learn some of the city's more gruesome history.

The tour was created by two local experts who have a fondness for the bizarre. Kathy Witt, author of "Secret Cincinnati", and Jill Morenz, writer for, collaborated to share their creepy knowledge with you.

You'll visit 10 spooky tour stops, plus learn about public art, history and architecture that you'll pass along the route. You will also receive a signed copy of "Secret Cincinnati," which will inspire you to further explore our region, plus a Secret Cincinnati bookmark to check off your adventures as you go.

The tour starts on the riverfront and ends in MainStrasse Village with a private browsing session at the final tour stop. You can spend some time eating and drinking in MainStrasse or accompany your guide back to the starting point.

The tour will take place rain or shine.
