How to hunt for ghosts without getting arrested...

How about renting a room in a haunted hotel? Yes, that's right, more travel propaganda. But still - in keeping with some recent posts about haunted places to stay, I thought I'd pass along a link to's Halloween press release, titled "Great Places to Sleep With a Ghost:'s Annual Round-Up of Bootiful Places and Spooky Faces":

AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Historical or hysterical, ghostly spirits enjoy B&Bs as much as living guests. As most stories tell, those lingering in the shadows are friendly, continuing to enjoy B&B hospitality., the largest online inn directory, offers its annual round up, enabling ghost-seekers to enjoy spirited gatherings and potentially close encounters with the other world, bed-and-breakfast style. RED GARTER B&B, Williams, AZ: Owner-innkeeper, John Holst, has come to terms with Eve, his resident ghost. This 1897 Victorian B&B, once considered the rowdiest abode on Saloon Row, operated as a bar and bordello until 1940. A steep flight of steps known as the "Cowboy's Endurance Test" led to the girls upstairs. Holst is sure that one of the women of the night never left. While most guests sleep well, some say they felt the bed shake, heard someone climbing the stairs, or felt a touch on their arms.
Why people think that they need to wait until Halloween to indulge in a haunted vacation is beyond me. These places sound like they'd be lovely any time of the year.
