Downtown Los Angeles has its share of ghost stories. The backdrop of noir novels and real-life crimes, the city’s Beaux Arts buildings have seen their share of chilling events. This Halloween, we encourage you to see for yourself, by taking an immersive, self-guided walking or driving tour of Haunted Los Angeles.

When you arrive at each stop on the tour, trigger the audio to hear a bit about the eerie history of the location–and about the ghosts that are said to still haunt the hallways to this day.

Note: The tour includes accounts of real-life crimes and may be too scary for kids. If you prefer a text guide, click here.
