GATLINBURG, Tenn. (WTVF) — As Halloween approaches, Tripadvisor rounded up the top 15 “spookiest” tours in the U.S. — and Gatlinburg's ghost and haunted tour made the list.

The online travel company unveiled the list Thursday, saying that ghost and vampire tours are some of the most popular tours for its users during the month of October.

Tripadvisor picked haunted attractions in larger cities like New Orleans, Chicago, Denver and New York – but Gatlinburg’s Ghost and Haunt Tours also made the list.

“The Smoky Mountain area of Tennessee is home to much more than just striking scenery — it’s also where the ghosts and ghouls of Gatlinburg are known to haunt. Learn all about the spooky history of this town with a 2-hour night walking tour, during which you’ll hunt supernatural spirits and possibly communicate with the local ‘residents’ yourself,” according to Tripadvisor’s overview of the tour.
