Whether you live in Roseville, Folsom, Fair Oaks,or Rancho Cordova, you have probably heard of these hauntings. These are some of the top haunted places in Sacramento. Whether or not you have heard of these haunts, try to keep reading and not glance over your shoulder.

Delta King Riverboat Hotel

You may have only thought ghosts haunt on land, but you should keep in mind, that wherever humans have walked, their traces are often manifested by ghosts. Such is the case of the Delta King Riverboat. This vessel’s captain has kept his promise to stay at the helm of the boat no matter what — even in death. He is still seen post-mortem watching the goings-on on deck and can be heard walking around the boat. He even knocks over a glass of water in the sound booth from time to time.

Paradise Beach

Not all who drown, remain dead, and this is certainly true for one particular man. A man who seemed to have drowned in a violent accident is said to walk the shores of Paradise Beach. The sight of the man is unsettling and he appears to visitors frequently. If you are looking for a water-side paradise, do not go to Paradise Beach!

Iceland Skating Rink

If you catch a slight chill at the Iceland Skating Rink, it might not just be from the cool temperatures of the ice rink. “Pops” Kerth, the original owner, still walks the space of his beloved ice rink. He can be seen locking up the building every night and making sure that all is where it needs to be at the end of the day.

The Old Record Store, K Street Mall

If you have ever visited the Old Record Store in the K Street Mall, you may have been told to keep it down by an older women in Victorian clothing. If this has happened to you, you are not alone. This women can usually be seen in the basement of the old record store. However, if you are being particularly noisy she will make her way up the stairs to tell you to pipe down.

Freeport Factory

Going to the Freeport Factory is not for the faint of heart. Since the deaths of several workers on the premises, there have been strange happens that cannot be explained. It is said that there can be heard the sounds of children laughing throughout the building. If you ever decide to go see it for yourself, be sure not to go alone. The spirits have been known to shut the door behind you and lock it, trapping you inside.

The Vampire of Sacramento

In the 1970s, Richard Trenton became known as The Vampire of Sacramento, for he drank the blood and ate some of the remains of his victims (Creepy!). Though Trenton no longer walks the streets, the murders that he committed over 40 years ago are reenacted in the homes of the victims.

Old Sacramento Tunnels

These tunnels are some of the most haunted places in Sacramento. It is so haunted that some of the transients that sleep in the tunnels will not set foot in certain parts.
