Many tour groups around the world are now offering tours and excursions that are helping the vampire imagery come to life.

Dracula's Castle (Bran Castle), located in Transylvania, Romania is the most popular vampire vacation spot in the wolrd. Tourists who come to this area usually make sure to also visit Dracula's birthplace, in Sighisoara, and Dracula’s burial grounds at the Snagov Monastery.

New Orleans Vampire tours and Haunted History tours are also very popular among Vampire enthusiasts. These chilling yet fun tours take guests to locations mainly in the French Quarter that are based on real diaries, city archives, and very real legends will make a believer out of anyone.

Forks, Washington, is home of "Twilight's" Cullen family of vampires. The popular "Twilight" series has given this small town (with a population of 3,175) a new life, with tourists coming from all over the world to see the real life town that was portrayed in the books and movies.

San Fransisco is not usually known for vampires, but there is an underground history of vampire lore. With the San Fransisco Vampire Tours, participants visit some very haunted places around the Nob Hill neighborhood.
