Checking in with Haunted Hotels

One might think that having a haunted hotel would be something to hush, but across the country, many hoteliers are making their resident apparitions a part of their marketing pitch. San Diego’s splendid Victorian beachfront Hotel del Coronado is heralded as one of the country’s best beach resorts on the best beach. It features amazing brunches, memorable wedding celebrations and it has a 120-year history of entertaining the country’s most legendary stars, from Charles Lindbergh to Marilyn Monroe. But the Hotel del Coronado also entertains another guest, a long-time specter, Kate Morgan. She was a beautiful young woman who checked into the hotel in 1892 and spent five lonely days waiting for a man who never arrived. Kate was found dead on an exterior staircase leading to the beach with a gunshot wound to her head. read more »

The 1,000-acre chain of parkland designed by Frederick Law Olmstead stretches from Boston Common to Franklin Park, and is a favorite leisure destination of locals all year long. But it’s especially beautiful when the trees start to turn, with peak color typically occurring between mid-October and early November. read more »
