Behind every man now alive stand 30 ghosts, for that is the ratio by which the dead outnumber the living. ~ Arthur C. Clarke, 2001: A Space Odyssey
If you want to encounter a ghost, you can’t find a better place than St. Augustine, the country’s oldest city. You might glimpse a specter wandering its brick streets, sense movement beside one of its historic buildings. or feel a sudden temperature drop in the Castillo de San Marcos, a somber fort looming at the edge of the water.
And I know of at least one St. Augustine ghost tour that guarantees you’ll stumble upon some spirits.
I’m talking about GhoST Augustine’s Haunted Pub Tour, every night from 8:30 - 11:30 pm. Your ghost-host will guide you on a tour of four old haunts, spinning tales about each, and measuring the current other-worldly activity with an EMF meter.
The first beverage of your choice is complimentary. You’ll spend 30 to 40 minutes in each pub, giving you time to soak up your favorite drink, the stories and the ghostly atmosphere before you stroll to the next pub.
The price for the Haunted Pub Tour is $20, but you can save $3 by booking online or by signing up early.
Sounds like an adventure to me!
