Old City Ghosts, the local operation of US Ghost Adventures, offers guided haunted tours of historic downtown St. Augustine featuring pirates, mermaids, bootleggers, monsters, and murderers. Their unflinching descriptions of St. Augustine's history includes real-life hauntings, tales of loss or lost love, and stories about spirits who simply don't want to leave America's Oldest City.
In addition to adding spooky fun to the week, Old City Ghosts offers historical insight throughout the tour, proving a fun way to learn about St. Augustine and her history. With bragging rights as the oldest continuously inhabited European city in North America, it's no surprise that St. Augustine has seen tragedy, fires, fights, murders, and illness — which may explain the psychic phenomenon reported by locals and visitors.
