Said to be one of America’s most haunted cities, a St Augustine Halloween visit won’t disappoint!

Ghost tours are featured year round in this 451 year old city as you may have already discovered.

When visiting during the month of October it seems the St. Augustine Ghost Tours not only grow in popularity, these tours become famous around the world for actual sightings and simply the best time ever!

Interested yet? Get ready for St Augustine Halloween at the Agustin Inn! We are centered around all the action of St. George Street Pedestrian Mall, which is one of our city’s oldest streets full of dated buildings. Just around the corner is the actual oldest street in the county – Aviles Street lined with outdoor cafes, art galleries and historic buildings like the Spanish Military Hospital and many more! Lets not forget about the Castillo de San Marcos; otherwise known as the brooding Spanish Fortress or Castle some say! This historic monument now ran by the National Park Service by day dates back to the 1600’s and is known for its history of imprisoning many men throughout history; in addition, the battles that took place there are to say the least massacres, so obviously why wouldn’t it be haunted with spirits!

Here in St. Augustine, Florida you will hear countless tales of spirits and even murder and mahem! Much of this history you will find on one of our nightly tours. Here is a list of the ones we at the Agustin recommend! If you need assistance with reservations please let us know but don’t wait too long on this one! Halloween is indeed one of the busiest times of the year! These tours are sure to sell out once the date approaches!
