If you're looking to spend some time in one of the most haunted places in the state of Florida this October, you might want to add the following city to your list.
The city of St. Augustine is considered to be one of the most haunted places in the state. Here's why.
The Ghosts and Gravestones website says, "Each year visitors come to explore the more than four centuries of history, exquisite architecture, beautiful natural scenery, and pristine Atlantic Coast beaches."
"And among those visitors are those with an affinity for apparitions and the paranormal—because inside the walls of the historic buildings, along the cobblestone streets and lingering among the people, there are many spirits of those who’ve lived and died here, those who’ve chosen never to leave," the website goes on to say.
Among the most haunted places in the city include the Old Jail, the Spanish Military Hospital, Huguenot Cemetery, and Casablanca Inn, just to name a few.
"Listed on the Florida and National Register of Haunted Places, tourists and locals alike visit the Old Jail to experience the supernatural stories firsthand," the website says about the Old Jail.
After the sun sets, you can even spend 45 minutes conducting your own paranormal investigation of the Old Jail!
According to the website, hauntings at the Spanish Military Hospital still happen today. "Moans, screams and cries, misty sightings of patients in hospital gowns and the outline of a body laying on the beds when no one was there are just a few of the accounts," the website says.
At the cemetery, several ghosts/spirits have been sighted roaming the grounds.
"The oldest city in America is home to so many incredible historic places and attractions. It’s no wonder that after 400 years and counting, this beautiful coastal area is also considered to be one of the most haunted cities in the country," the website says.
Ghost tours are offered throughout the city and are certain to provide you with plenty of entertainment.
