About San Diego Ghosts

San Diego sits southwest of Los Angeles, and while it may seem like a relaxing destination with miles of beaches and warm waters, darkness lies within.

Why is San Diego’s Old Town so haunted?

San Diego’s Old Town has a long and varied history. The area’s unique location has created a distinctive combination of Native American, Mexican, and American cultures that cannot be replicated anywhere else. Any time you have such disparate views and beliefs in one place, you are bound to see some violence and turmoil. While San Diego history has largely been peaceful, death finds a way. The psychic pain of death is everywhere, and that pain manifests through both benevolent and malevolent spirits.

From the active ghosts of the Whaley home to the deafening whispers of the Mormon Battalion, death is woven into the fabric of Old Town San Diego. The reason for this may be under the feet of every visitor to this part of the city. Much of Old Town is built on the repurposed grounds of the El Campo Santo Cemetery. The dead are literally underfoot, and the effect is undeniable. In nearly every corner of Old Town, even among the recreations and refurbishments, is filled with a story or a rumor that leads back to the paranormal. While some of these spirits are peaceful enough, others prey on the vulnerability of the living to terrify and torment.

No matter what draws you to listen to stories about the supernatural, Old Town will give you a unique
and compelling experience that will have you thinking long after.
