A third entertaining experience for you and your friends or family, especially those who are fans of true crimes and unexplained mysteries, is Bloodlust: Mysteries of Victorian Boston.
The ‘Bloodlust’ experience is described on Airbnb by its host, Michael, as follows:
“In the late 1800s, Boston experienced a wave of gruesome murders and unexplained phenomena… Most interesting was how one community responded to this – the South End, the oldest and largest Victorian neighborhood from the country.
Not only was there a revival of the famous witchcraft trials that took place 200 years earlier, but people were also accused of being vampires and conversing with the dead – all while murders serially…hiding just out of sight.”
We don’t know about you, but we were certainly surprised to hear that there was some kind of “revisit” of the famous Salem Witch Trials of 1692. And say what? Vampires?
Michael continues with this invitation:
“Explore this quaint post-Civil War suburb, its architectural gems and eerie statuary that tourists rarely see. Then delve into the concerns of the people who lived here, their art, science, politics and true stories crimes, with demonstrations on Victorian phantasmagoria and the new fields of forensic medicine and toxicology.”
During the mile-and-a-half walk, visitors will hear stories of nefarious individuals and the horrific crimes they have committed, while enjoying the backdrop of “architecturally significant homes and churches” in the beautiful South End of Boston.
Doesn’t that look cool?
The experience has an average of 4.94/5 stars, and over 470 Comments at the time of this writing. It currently costs $34/person and operates most days of the week.
