Heighten the Thrill of Halloween Tour by Pairing It with Cannabis
By Mia Jane
The fall season always a brings a chill to the air and a little bit of a chill up my spine. Sometimes a few tokes are just the ticket to getting me going when the creeping cold weather sets in. With Halloween being just around the corner, there is a kind of spooky excitement all around that makes this one of my favorite times of the year for Denver ghost tours and all things scary.
The leaves are changing and the season for spooks and spirits is underway. Replace those chills with some thrills while you peruse some local haunts on one of the best Denver ghost tours, maybe with a little extra weed-friendly fun to help take the edge off any extra-spooked cohorts. Look no further for your top-four guide for fright-filled fun in Colorado’s best city for haunted encounters.
What creepier way to see the ominous sights of a city than by walking unprotected through the eeriest spots you can find on one of the top Denver ghost tours?
I find that a few hits of my vape pen will normally take the edge off if I’m feeling too freaked out before an episode into the eerie. After you get settled into your 420-friendly hotel accommodations, make sure you stock the hotel room with lots of good munchies.
Snacks and some pseudo-Halloween candy are a sweet way to relax after an extra creepy experience if I’m feeling unsettled. Sugar is, after all, the best high, so they say. Hit Sugar or City Pop downtown for some gourmet treats sure to please anyone’s saccharine cravings.
Denver Ghost Tours Pairing #1:
Blaze & Gaze + Nightly Spirits
Get ready for graffiti and ghost stories when checking out this double-hitter of a tour itinerary.

You’ll get a chance to elevate your mind and unwind at a local Denver speakeasy-style consumption lounge so as not to worry as much about the eerie elements to come.
But don’t let the couch lock set in just yet. After you wrap up at the lounge and head out on a tour of this thriving and unique downtown neighborhood, you can pop around the corner to the aptly named Nightly Spirits ghost tours. Chosen as one of Denver’s best tours, you’ll get to continue your evening with a creepily fun pub crawl that you won’t soon forget.
