There are at least thirteen Arizona ghost tours. You’ll find that Tombstone has more than its fair share of tours, but there may be enough ghosts there to warrant them. One place to check out in Tombstone is the Bird Cage Theatre which has received reports of hauntings since the 1880s. Another prime place to search for ghosts is at the Haunted Grand Hotel in Jerome, one of the ten most haunted hotels. It started out as the United Verde Hospital in 1927.
