We probably all heard and seen by now the spooky footage of the famous St Augustine lighthouse ghost hunt done by the show Ghost Hunters, but St
Augustine paranormal activity isn't only confined to the lighthouse. America's oldest city is downright spooky. Well because of Ghost Hunters, my
kids have been begging that our next family vacation include St Augustine.... so I gave in..
While making my travel arrangements for a 3 day getaway to this intriguing city in early April, I have found that just about every thing in this city,
hotels, parks, restuarants, and of course cemetaries are all haunted. So our little trip has now turned into a ghost hunt and we will be attempting
to document any paranormal activity we can find. I'll be listing all the places that we will be visiting and would welcome any suggestions and tips
on where to visit. I've heard of the "ghost tours" and will definitely be taking one of those, however if anyone has recommendations to a
particular one, please let me know.
I would also like information on what affordable ghost hunting tools to take along. So far it's cameras and a digital recorder, however I am
interested in the possibility of getting an EMF detector, but I'm unsure and unfamiliar with the technology and don't know what to get.
I would also like tips from our professional ghost hunters and advice regarding spiritual protection for my sons. We don't want any ancient spaniard
following us home down I-95 when our stay is over. Part of the reason for this trip is for my own personal development, I know what I feel and the
things I have seen, I'm curious to know how much I will be actually able to see and feel in such a haunted place. This is the first time I'll be
actually "seeking" the paranormal out.
Known Haunted Places in St. Augustine on our "must see" list:
Castillo De San Marcos
Old St. Augustine Village
of course we'll visit the Fountain of Youth, but I'm not familiar if that is considered a haunted location.
tips and suggestions welcomed
