Ah, midsummer…when a young woman’s fancy strays to thoughts of ghosts. Okay, maybe it’s just me. :P

Strange as it seems, as fascinated as I am by ghosts and paranormal investigation, I’ve never been on a ghost-hunting tour or joined up with any local investigative outfits. Truth be told, I’m a little wary. Of course I like to get the biggest bang for my buck, not only fright-wise, but with solid research and proper respect. But when I missed a LivingSocial deal on a ghost-hunting tour in Naperville, I thought to myself: why aren’t I out there, mixing it up amongst the supernatural?

So I turn to you, dear readers. Do you know of any decent paranormal investigation societies in the Chicago region? Or, alternately, what are the best ghost tours around the city? Ideally I stay away from “kiddie” or “too much drama” stuff, though a dark sense of humor is right up my alley. Spill your guts in the comments!
