Explore the Haunts of Chicago!

Did you know that Chicago is one of the most haunted cities in America? October is the perfect time to explore some of the most haunted sites in the city. Meet your coach in the parking lot at Woodfield Mall, just west of Firestone Auto Center. We will travel to Chicago where our first stop will be Castle for a buffet dinner which will include Italian sausage or home-made Italian beef, penne pasta with tomato vodka sauce, Chicago style thin crust pizza, roasted sweet peppers and hot Giardiniera, Italian bread and butter, and a non-alcoholic beverage. A cash bar will be available for any alcoholic beverages you wish to purchase. Your certified Chicago Tour Guide will meet us at Castle and talk about the hauntings of the building and will give an overview of what the evening has in store.

On this excursion, we will unlock and explore the stories behind some of Chicago's darkest and most macabre secrets. Hear the stories the city would rather you forgot. Learn the Chicago origins of "Rosemary's Baby." Stops may include the Fort Dearborn Massacre site, Iroquois Theater and Death Alley, the Eastland Disaster site, Hull House, Harpo Studios, the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre site, and the abandoned City Cemetery among others. Learn why supernatural activities occur and what form they may take. Take a ride with us to the dark side --day or night.

    Glad you're joining us Carolyn. You may bring alcoholic beverages on the coach, I just ask that you pour it in a plastic container. Some of the members on the Saturday tour used their water bottles, a great idea. See you soon.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
