    There's a book called "Haunted Ohio" with stories about supposedly-haunted places in the state. One of them claims that there is a bridge in a small town in northwestern Ohio where the "ghost" of a motorcyclist who was killed can be seen. Well, the headlight can be seen, anyway. . .moving down the road and disappearing at the point where the accident allegedly happened.

    My college roommates and I went to check it out one night when we were bored.

    Didn't see anything, except for a bunch of other people who also drove out to go ghost-hunting. I guess they were bored, too.

    Apparently, it's kind of a local attraction, and the people who live there nicknamed it "Spook Road."

    Yes! I did a walking guided tour of Portland's "Shanghai tunnels" Able bodied men were drugged and kidnapped, and sold to ship captains for slave labor. There are tunnels below the streets connecting buildings and are supposedly one of the most haunted places in America!

    It was very interesting and creepy, however, if I were to do that tour again, it would be during the daylight. The tunnels we were in were directly below nightclubs and it's hard to be spooked when the dj is blaring Katy Perry!

    When I lived in Virginia, I also did a late night ghost tour of Colonial Williamsburg. That was very fascinating as well, but we were not permitted to go into any of the buildings because there were employees that work at the settlement living in them. Spooky nonetheless!

    The library in my hometown is supposed to be haunted. Went there often as a kid but never experienced anything spooky. I think one of my older siblings did though....

    YES - I did a tour of Eastern State Pennitentary in Philly - they do a haunted house thing at Halloween (which is by far the best one around), but they also do daytime tours of the prison. It's seriously spooky, even during the day, and especially Death Row.

    Supposedly the house I was living in till recently was haunted. One of my roommates swears she saw the ghost one night and there were plenty of stories floating around the farm about it. *grin*

    I never saw anything unusual, just the usual stuff that goes with an old farmhouse.

    I did the haunted tour of the old former West Virginia State Penitentiary years ago in Moundsville, WV, after the prison was on the show Fear on MTV. I would highly recommend that place if you like spooky stuff - they do the haunted tour and the historical tour. You won't leave disappointed.

    *or at least they used to. I went with friends right after it was on Fear and that was years ago...might want to check their website to make sure they are still operating the tours. The prison is no longer in use, so you don't have to worry about seeing prisoners.
