Ghostly Experience Walking Tour
Student groups on St. Augustine getaway won’t want to miss area historian Sandy Craig’s popular “Ghostly Experience Tour.”
Over twenty years ago, she realized students on field trips staying in the Old City overnight desperately needed a truly safe, fun and educational evening activity; something out of the ordinary. She and a few local writers and researchers joined forces and researched endless leads – stories, photos, documents and diaries and created a guided tour based on verifiable ghost “sightings” and other strange occurrences in the historic city, today considered a veritable hotbed of fascinating paranormal activity. Her eerily entertaining tours were an overnight success!
Participants are led down narrow cobblestone streets by lantern light, hoping for a glimpse of the supernatural; expert guides regale them with true stories of St. Augustine’s “dark side,” reveal “haunting habits,” provide a few spirit-spotting tips and encourage them to “be on the lookout for swooping lights, unearthly fog and ghostly shadows in the night,” all documented phenomena regularly experienced when exploring the Old City’s haunted locations. Tours depart every night at 8 pm, rain or shine, and last approximately 75 spooky minutes. Bring a camera - what shows up in your photos may be a little different than what you snapped!
