In the same week that Charleston was voted by Conde Nast readers as the No. 1 tourist destination in America, the Holy City has secured the No. 1 spot on Forbes's list as the best town in America to take a ghost tour.

Here's what Forbes had to say about all of Charleston's haunted history:

Plantation houses, cemeteries, old pirate stomping grounds, nearby Folly Island, mass war graves, and hotels like the Battery Carriage House Inn—known for sightings of ghosts including a headless torso from the Civil War era—are all paranormal hotbeds in this well-preserved, historic city, considered to be one of America’s most haunted. Bulldog Tours is one of the most prominent leaders of ghost tours, offering various treks through town, graveyards and even the Old City Jail; plenty of others will also lead you through church cemeteries, on candle-lit ghost hunts or through sites of superstitious legends.
