Cheers & Kudos

I would like to compliment the coordinators of the Carson City Ghost Walk. I attended the “undertaker tour” of the Ghost Walk last weekend with my son and niece, both 5 years old. The tour was very educational and kid friendly. I think we all forget the history we have right here in Nevada. The Ghost Walk is a great way for families to learn and have fun at the same time.
