Welcome to St Augustine


What makes St Augustine so genuinely endearing is the accessibility of its rich history via countless top-notch museums and the authenticity of its centuries-old architecture, monuments and narrow cobbled lanes. Unlike Florida's numerous historical theme parks, St Augustine is the real deal.

You'll find a diverse array of wonderful B&Bs, cozy cafes and lamp-lit pubs, and while fine dining might not be the first thing that comes to mind at Florida's mention, it is certainly synonymous with St Augustine.

Embark on an adventure like no other as you journey through to the other side on the Ghosts & Gravestones Tour. Hop of the TROLLEY OF THE DOOMED and listen to haunted tales that surround one of the spookiest and most well known sites for supernatural occurrences, the city of St Augustine.

See where the Sheriff and his wife and family lived - adjacent to where the prisoners were housed. Once inside the Old Jail, listen quietly for voices in the night; guests have reported hearing cries for help as they walked through the hallways. Be extra careful not to run into resident ghost, Charlie Powell, an inmate who served his time, yet was never set free. Built in 1891, the Old Jail housed prisoners for over 60 years and many criminals met their maker here at the end of a hangman's noose. Listed on the Florida and National Haunted Places Register, the Old Jail has been the site of countless supernatural occurrences. Is St. Augustine really haunted?
