Inside LA - The Los Angeles Lowdown
SPECIAL HALLOWEEN DTLA MURDER MYSTERY GHOST TOUR
Join our Special Halloween DTLA Murder Mystery Ghost tour and have sleepless nights for weeks!
First we visit the Biltmore Hotel, the last place the tragic Black Dahlia, Elizabeth Short, was seen alive. Next we stop at Clifton’s and learn about the anti-corruption drive of its Christian founder (who had a few secrets of his own). After that we move to the dreaded Hotel Cecil, which has a hellish history of murders, suicides and killers (including the Night Stalker). From there our DTLA Murder Mystery Ghost tour moves to the once grand Alexandria Hotel, where Rudolph Valentino’s ghost still haunts his old penthouse, then the Barclay Hotel, home to two serial killers – and also the scene of some of their most brutal murders. We visit the site of the Chinatown Massacre of 1871 (still the largest mass lynching in US history), before the tour finishes at the Halls of Justice, the site of many dramatic trials, including those of Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel (twice) and the infamous Charles Manson.
- Wear your best Halloween costume – there will be a prize for the best-dressed guest (voted for by us!).
- Receive a special Halloween gift.
- Learn about Dia de Los Muertos, a celebration of life, and the return of Quetzalcoatl, the phoenix of the Americas, rising from the ashes, reborn.
- Other special elements will be added to the event in the time leading up to it.
