Mickey Of Miami's Top Ten Best and Most Haunted Places in Florida where you can spot a real ghost.

1. Haunted St. Augustine Florida Ghosts

St. Augustine is a city in St. Johns County, Florida, in the United States. It is the oldest continuously occupied European-established city in the continental United States. St. Augustine lies in a region of Florida known as The First Coast, which extends from Amelia Island in the north, south to Jacksonville, St. Augustine and Palm Coast. Also known as the Ancient City, Nation's Oldest City.

St. Augustine was founded by the Spanish in 1565, and is the oldest city in the present-day United States of America. The first Christian worship service held in a permanent settlement in the current United States was a Catholic Mass celebrated in St. Augustine. A few settlements were founded prior to St. Augustine but all failed, including the original Pensacola colony in West Florida, founded by Tristán de Luna y Arellano in 1559, with the area abandoned in 1561 due to hurricanes, famine and warring tribes, and Fort Caroline in what is today Jacksonville, Florida in 1564. The city was founded by the Spanish admiral Pedro Menéndez de Avilés on September 8, 1565. Menéndez first sighted land on August 28, the feast day of Augustine of Hippo, and consequently named the settlement San Agustín. Martin de Arguelles was born here one year later in 1566, the first child of European ancestry to be born in what is now the United States. This came 21 years before the English settlement at Roanoke Island in Virginia Colony, and 42 years before the successful settlements of Santa Fe, New Mexico, and Jamestown, Virginia. In all the territory under the jurisdiction of the United States, only settlements in Puerto Rico are older than St. Augustine, with the oldest being San Juan, founded in 1512.

In 1586 St. Augustine was attacked and burned by Sir Francis Drake. In 1668 it was plundered by pirates and most of the inhabitants were killed. In 1702 and 1740 it was unsuccessfully attacked by British forces from their new colonies in the Carolinas and Georgia. The most serious of these came in the latter year, when James Oglethorpe of Georgia allied himself with Ahaya the Cowkeeper, chief of the Alachua band of the Seminole tribe to lay siege to the city.

Home to Ripley's Believe it or Not! Museum, Ripley's oldest Odditorium, located in the Castle Warden, was purchased shortly after his death in 1949 and opened in 1950. Prior to becoming home to Ripley's vast collections from his many travels, "The Castle" as it is known, was once a hotel which played host to many famous guests, including Ripley himself and author/owner Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings. "The Castle" was originally a Moorish Revival style mansion, built in 1887 by millionaire William Warden as a winter home. The popularity and success of this museum led Ripley's associates to open new establishments throughout the United States and the world. But "The Castle" remains the permanent home of Ripley's personal collections and is the flagship of the Odditoriums. Perhaps not surprisingly, it is also rumored to be haunted. Segments of the most recent Ripley's TV series were filmed here, including the opening credits. Among the attractions here are a mummified cat, a 1/12 scale model of the original Ferris wheel made out of Erector sets, life and death masks of famous celebrities (including Abe Lincoln), and shamanistic apparatus from cultures around the world. It is at this museum where the ghost of Sanz McGillinz can be found drinking powerade.

2. Haunted Miami, Florida Ghosts

Miami was officially incorporated as a city on July 28, 1896, though the area was first inhabited for more than a thousand years by the Tequesta Indians and was claimed for Spain in 1566 by Pedro Menéndez de Avilés. A Spanish mission was established a year later in 1567. In the mid-1800s Fort Dallas was built and subsequently, was a site of fighting during the Second Seminole War. In the 1920s, Miami prospered through the Florida Land Boom of the 1920's with an increase in population and infrastructure. By 1940, 172,172 people lived in the city and Miami had grown to become a large, growing city.

The Miami area was better known as “Biscayne Bay Country” in the early years of its growth. The few published accounts from that period describe the area as a wilderness that held much promise. A once haunted hot spot was "The Villa Paula". The actual hauntings have made the newspapers more then once over the years.

With Miami's diversified culture several forms of Voodoo, Santeria and many other Yourba bassed religions thrive here in the sunny climate. The paranormal expierences associated with this seems to rule over the entire city.

Cassadaga, Real Ghosts Encounters!

By LISA LEE HARP WAUGH

Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp Has always been a place I have truly wanted to visit. I visited Cassadaga for a day trip while visiting a friend in Florida this past week. I personally wanted to see what the town was all about and to see if anyone there was or has experienced the same things I have in my life. Basically I did not go thee searching for answers as much as I did looking for liked minded individuals who actually talk to real ghosts as I do.

Many of you do not realize what it is like to converse with the dead. It takes it's toll on you as well as it often leaves you with more questions then answers as well as feelings of need to connect with others that can truly understand you or your encounters.

Spititualism and those followers of it are in my book very cool to converse with. I love their pledge and their nine standards. I love the Golden Rule I wish more Ghost hunting groups would come together as these indivduals did. ALSO SEE: Espiritismo: Real Answers From the Dead

Ever since I learned of The Cassadaga Psychics back in reading "The Psychic Mafia" I always wanted to visit the location to find out the truth for myself about this place where ghosts and psychic phenomena is supposedly truly unleashed.

Cassadaga Seance:

VIDEO with Weird US

 

 

I often preach to those that will listen no two ghost encounters are ever the same. And I was quite shaken by my recent visit to Aokigahara Forest, Japan. PLEASE READ MORE HERE NOW: "THE MOST HAUNTED FOREST AND HOT SPOT IN THE ASIAN WORLD!" For you should understand I have never been taken over by a spirit like that before in my life and I purely wanted To really understand what had really happened to me.

A 10 minute documentary about the small town in central Florida.

Cassadaga: A Documentary
 

The true Cassadaga community is a more then just interesting, rural and unusually hilly part of Florida. The ENTIRE area is ablaze with psychic energies. the comings and goings of actual spirits to this area makes it the United States Mecca and Summer home to many traveling ghosts. The actual psychic camp was originally founded by spiritualists in the 19th century and is still going strong today.

Cassadaga (a Seneca Indian word meaning "Water beneath the rocks") is a small unincorporated community located in Volusia County, Florida, just north of Deltona. It is especially known for having a possibly the largest number of psychics, also known as Mediums in one place, and as such, has been named the "Psychic Capital of the World".

There is a bookstore in the center of town that is where visitors may shop and learn about spiritualism and where I went obtain a reading with a certified medium. Which I was so glad to visit and converse with my experience with becoming fully taken over by the ghost of a japanese man in the forest of death.

The Cassadaga Spiritualist camp began when the Southern Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp Meeting Association was founded by George P. Colby, from Pike, New York, a trance medium who traveled to many different states, giving readings and Séances. He was well known, and in his travels, Colby was referred to as the "seer of spiritualism". Mr. Colby attended summer Spiritualist Camp meetings at Lily Dale, New York, the town adjacent to Cassadaga, New York.

Mr. Colby worked with several spirit guides, who would channel knowledge to him. One of his guides was an Indian named Seneca, that had manifested to Colby during a Séances in Lake Mills, Iowa. According to Colby, the guide Seneca had instructed him to travel to the south, into Florida, where he eventually arrived at a place called the Blue Springs Landing, near Orange City, Florida. According to Colby, the area that Seneca had lead him to was the same area that Colby had seen during the Séances in Iowa.

Colby had arrived in Florida in 1875, and several decades later, on the 18th of December, 1894 the charter was granted to form The Southern Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp Meeting Association. Later on January 3, 1895 Colby had signed a warranty deed to the Association for thirty-five acres. The people who came to the Spiritualist Camp in the early days of its formation were affluent and well educated. The Cassadaga Spiritualist camp was named after the small Spiritualist Camp community found outside of Lily Dale, New York. The Spiritualist Camp Association later received additional acreage that expanded the camp to the current fifty-seven acres.

 

In speaking with the many people I met there I learned that Cassadaga has a very respectable level of teaching techniques and awareness through it's school that will make you more familiar with many psychic tools and specializes trans mediumship and open communications with the dead that haunt us.

I did get a reading from a resident medium that was just more then just OK. I am a practicing Necromancer as many of you are aware of and I've had a lot of contact with disembodied voices and apparitions in my life. Also for the fact that I do openly hunt for real ghosts with many paranormal groups around the world I was taken aback because so many here in this hot Florida town,still practice the teachings of the Victorian era Séances.

I had a wonderful long tarot card reading at one of the shops the camp by a psychic names Sage, and my dearest friend Julie Hough had excellent Astrological, Crystal ball, past life regressions, and palm reading from a man named Bob. who told her many things about someone she really has her eye on. You can find here in Cassadaga many ways to discern the future or communicate with someone who has crossed over.

Today, the Camp features the Cassadaga Hotel, a central auditorium, The Colby Memorial Temple, a community library, the Caesar Forman Healing Center, a Camp Bookstore, and a welcome center. Also, there is the Andrew Jackson Davis building, used for musical performances and gatherings, and the annual Cassadaga Masquerade Ball.

The principles of spirituality that are taught by the people at Cassadaga state, "Spiritualism has no dogma or creed, just a simple set of nine principles to help guide our lives". According to the teachings of Spiritualism, it is the "Science, philosophy, and religion based upon the principle of continuous life". In March 14, 1991, the Southern Cassadaga Spiritualist camp was declared a U.S. Historic District. The Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp is a federal tax-exempt Church currently governed by a Board of Trustees.

I did not have the great pleasure or opportunity to sit in a real haunted Cassadaga Séances, and I will do that the next time I visit and there, will be a next time. I really want to explore the location out more before I make any claims or disputes. I want to meet more people and get to know them more before I make any assumptions. I want to investigate table tapping to the ghost hunting extreme. I also want to ask something of these Florida ghost deeper then if there is beer in heavean. like Weird USA asked.

 

There are at least one hundred or more note worthy Devil's Chairs located in cemeteries in the United States, associated with urban legends. The Devil's Chair in Cassadaga, Florida is a graveside bench in the cemetery that borders Cassadaga and Lake Helen. Local legend perpetuates the Devil-as-good-ol'-boy image: one of the stories insists that if you leave an unopened can of beer on the chair, it will be empty by morning. Accounts vary; in some of them, the can's opened, in others, the beer is simply gone, like magic, through the unopened top. Furthermore, if you yourself sit in the chair, you run the chance of having a heart-to-heart with the Prince of Darkness, who is rumored to show up anyone who dares to wait for him there. Please read more about the devils many chairs and thrones"The Devil's Chair" here now.

4. Key West, Florida Ghosts

Key West is a city and an island of the same name near the southernmost tip of the Florida Keys in Monroe County, Florida, United States. The city encompasses the namesake island, the part of Stock Island north of US-1 (the Overseas Highway) (east), Sigsbee Park (north, originally known as Dredgers Key), Fleming Key (north), and Sunset Key (west, originally known as Tank Island). Nearby Key Haven (northeast), the part of Stock Island south of US-1 (east) and Wisteria Island, better known as Christmas Tree Island (northwest), are in unincorporated Monroe County. Both Fleming Key and Sigsbee Park are part of the NAS Key West and are inaccessible by civilians.

Key West Cemetery near Solares Hill, the highest point of land on the island. The cemetery was moved to the high spot in 1847 after an 1846 hurricane washed corpses out of the beach cemetery. Some say the lost souls comb the white sand beaches day and night.

Key West has an east-west orientation rather than north-south as many mistake when they drive down U.S. Route 1 (Overseas Highway) from Miami since the highway enters the island on the northeast corner.

The original Key West neighborhood in the west (although perceived as south) is called "Old Town." It includes the major tourist destinations of the island including Mallory Square, Duval Street, the Truman Annex and Fort Zachary Taylor. It is where you find the classic bungalows and guest mansions.

Generally, the structures date from 1886 to 1912. The basic features that distinguish the local architecture include wood frame construction of one to two-and-a-half story structures set on foundation piers about three feet above the ground. Exterior characteristics of the buildings are peaked "tin" roofs, horizontal wood siding, pastel shades of paint, side-hinged louvered shutters, covered porches (or balconies, galleries, or verandas) along the fronts of the structures, and wood lattice screens covering the area elevated by the piers.

Many visitors rent a bicycle and explore the history and architecture of Old Town Key West. Walking tours, including a tour of the unusual Key West Cemetery, are available. The Sunset Celebration at Mallory Square is a daily spectacle for visitors and residents. Boat excursions and tours provide a great way to view Key West from the water.

The Duval Street bar and restaurant district includes many different entertainment options, all within walking distance of each other.

The Tennessee Williams Theatre is a performing arts center, a civic center, and a community center.

The Key West Literary Seminar, a celebration of writers and writing held each January, attracts an international audience to hear such writers as Ian McEwan, Margaret Atwood, Billy Collins, and Joyce Carol Oates.

The Key West Botanical Forest and Garden is an excellent, frost-free arboretum and botanical garden containing a number of "champion tree" specimens.

Nancy Forrester's Secret Garden is a one acre (4,000 m²) garden resembling a lush, predominantly green, rainforest. It is an exhibit of wild nature’s artistry in a woodland garden.

The Key West Butterfly & Nature Conservatory features a 5,000 square foot (460 m²) glass-domed tropical butterfly habitat.

A permanent AIDS Memorial is at the White Street Pier.

The Mel Fisher Maritime Museum showcases gold, silver, and treasure recovered from shipwrecks around the world.

Some tourists mingle with the locals, shop, and dine at the Key West Historic Seaport at the Key West Bight.

The Key West Lighthouse and Keeper's Quarters Museum preserves the history of the Key West Lighthouse built in 1847.

Nobel Prize-winning author Ernest Hemingway's former home is now open to the public as a museum, populated by as many as sixty descendants of his famous polydactyl cats.

PrideFest is seven days of events, presented by the Gay and Lesbian Community Center of Key West the first week in June. The schedule includes the Pride Follies talent extravaganza; contests to select a Mr., Ms. and Miss PrideFest; parties, a tea dance; and the PrideFest Parade down Duval Street. Key West was the first American city to openly recruit gay tourists.

In 1979 the Key West Tourist Development Association, Inc. started Fantasy Fest to attract tourists at the traditionally slow time at Halloween, which is at the end of the hurricane season. Fantasy Fest regularly attracts approximately 80,000 people to the island, and has become a huge success.

In June 2006 the Key West Gay & Lesbian Museum & Archive opened at the Gay and Lesbian Community Center at 513 Truman St. Featured exhibits include a Tennessee Williams typewriter as well as an extensive collection of memorabilia and papers of Richard A. Heyman who was one of the first openly gay mayors before dying in 1994 of AIDS.

6. Daytona Beach Ghosts

Daytona Beach is a city in Volusia County, Florida, USA. Daytona Beach is a year-round resort area, and home to Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Bethune-Cookman University, Daytona Beach Community College, and Keiser University, and the University of Central Florida Daytona Beach Campus. The city is historically known for its motorsports, with both Daytona International Speedway and the old Daytona Beach Road Course having hosted races for over a century. The city is also the headquarters for NASCAR and the Grand American Road Racing Association. Daytona could accurately be called a seasonal town, with large groups of out-of-towners descending upon the city for various events, most notably Speedweeks in early February when over 200,000 NASCAR fans come to attend the season-opening Daytona 500. Other events include the NASCAR Pepsi 400 race in July, Bike Week in March, Biketoberfest in October and Black College Reunion in March and April. In the past Daytona Beach catered to spring breakers, but in recent years many of the breakers have migrated to other sites, like Panama City. Daytona Beach has tried to clean up its image but in the last few years spring breakers have come back again in smaller numbers.

Daytona "The World's Most Famous Beach" And it's very haunted too! Many report seeing actual people or their ghost drowning in the surf. Also EVP's of strange voices echoing in the night. Ghost photos happen here in every point of the city all the time.

Some say the many ghosts from across America travel here trying to recapture days gone by.

7. Pensacola, Florida Ghosts

Pensacola is a city in Escambia County, Florida and the county seat of Escambia County. Pensacola, Florida has had a rich and colorful history over 450 years, being the first settlement in the continental United States (1559), Pensacola is nicknamed "The City of Five Flags" due to the five flags that have flown over it during its history: the flags of Spain (Castile), France, Great Britain, the Confederate States of America, and the United States. Other nicknames include "World's Whitest Beaches" (due to the white sand prevalent along beaches in the Florida panhandle), "Cradle of Naval Aviation" (the National Museum of Naval Aviation is located at the Pensacola Naval Air Station, home of the legendary Blue Angels), "Western Gate to the Sunshine State," "America's First Settlement," "Emerald Coast," "Redneck Riviera," and "Red Snapper Capital of the World."

Pensacola's location on the Florida Panhandle makes it vulnerable to hurricanes. Major hurricanes which have made landfall at or near Pensacola include Eloise (1975), Frederic (1979), Juan (1985), Erin (1995), Opal (1995), Ivan (2004), and Dennis (2005).

Pensacola and several surrounding areas were devastated by Hurricane Ivan. Pensacola found itself on the eastern side of the eyewall, which sent a large storm surge into Escambia Bay that eventually destroyed most of the I-10 Bay Bridge. Over six billion dollars in damage occurred in the metro area and more than 10,000 homes were destroyed, with another 27,000 heavily damaged. NASA created a comparison image to illustrate the massive damage. Hurricane Ivan drove up the cost of housing in the area, leading to a severe shortage of affordable housing. In July 2005, Hurricane Dennis made landfall just east of the city, sparing it the blow it had received from Ivan the year before. However, hurricane and near-hurricane force winds were recorded in downtown, causing moderate damage.

Although Pensacola only received a glancing blow from 2005s devastating Hurricane Katrina, light to moderate damage was reported in the area. Katrina also undermined a large percentage of Pensacola's tourist base from Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama.

Major holidays in Pensacola include Memorial Day (GLBT), Florida Mardi Gras, and the Fiesta of Five Flags. Celebrations of note in Pensacola are the Great Gulfcoast Arts Festival, the Seafood Festival, Gay Pride (Memorial Day Weekend), The King Mackerel and Cobia Tournament, Florida Springfest (although canceled in 2006 and 2007), Gracefest (a Christian music festival), Lobsterfest, University of West Florida Festival On The Green, the Bushwhacker Festival and the Bill Fishing Tournament.

Historic Seville Square and it adjacents parks, Fountain Park and Bartram Park are the sites of most of Pensacola's festivals. In the summer on Thursdays and on the Thursday in the beginning of the Christmas season, the Pensacola Heritage Foundation presents local bands in it's famous gazebo for free and very popular concerts. In December the Pensacola Christmas Market is a popular event in Seville Square as is the Great Gulf Coast Arts Festival and Seafood Festival are in the fall and the Cajun Crawfish Festival is in the spring. Festivals in Seville Square is a successful tradition begun by local preservations in the early 60's led by Mary Turner Rule Reed and the Pensacola Heritage Foundaion who started the movement to save and restore this square and Pensacola's old settlement around it.

Is Pensacola haunted ? How can it not be!

the Pensacola Historical Society (http://pensacolahistory.org) each year present its Haunted House Walking and Trolley Tours. The tours feature costumed guides who recount tales – some true, some simply long-held urban legends – of murder, nefarious characters and ghosts from Pensacola’s long history). As the historical society puts it, the tours let you “become acquainted with some of the city's residents who refuse to leave, even after death has claimed them.”

Pensacola Naval Air Station might send a few shivers down your spine. Built in 1859, the lighthouse saw back-and-forth possession by the Union and Confederate armies during the Civil War, and has been hit by lightning, shaken by a rare Florida earthquake, and survived numerous hurricanes. Some also say it’s haunted by ghostly footsteps, doors that open and close by themselves, and the spirit of its first keeper, Jeremiah Ingraham.

Lighthouse tours are led by Coast Guard Auxiliary guides from noon to 4 p.m. Sundays, May through October.

A Small collection of bars known as Seville Quarter. Located off Government Street in Downtown Pensacola inside what used to be the old historic courthouse is a collection of bars for anyone's taste. The environment itself is a real treasure, the old building is absolutely beautiful and full of vitality. Local urban legend also adds to Seville Quarter's color with talk of ghosts that may still haunt it.

8. Fort Lauderdale, Florida Ghosts

Fort Lauderdale, known as the "Venice of America" due to its expansive and intricate canal system, is a city in Broward County, Florida, United States. With the very haunted Stranahan House as the best destination to spot a ghost in haunted Florida.

The Stranahan House, Built in 1906, for Pioneer Floridian Frank Stranahan, This is one of Haunted Fort Lauderdale's most haunted houses. Built in 1906, for Pioneer Floridian Frank Stranahan.

The Stranahan House has served as a trading post, post office, bank and town hall. Restored to its 1913 , it's a "must see" in Haunted South Florida.

Fort Lauderdale is named after series of forts built by the United States during the Second Seminole War, although development did not begin until 50 years after the forts were abandoned at the end of the conflict. There were three forts constructed with that name; the first was at the fork of the New River, the second at Tarpon Bend, in what is now known as the Sailboat Bend neighborhood, and the third near the site of the Bahia Mar Marina.

The area in which the city of Fort Lauderdale would later be founded was inhabited for more than a thousand years by the Tequesta Indians. Though the area changed control between Spain, England, the United States, and the Confederated States of America, it remained largely undeveloped until the 20th century.

The first settlement in the area was the site of a massacre at the beginning of the Second Seminole War, an event which precipitated the abandonment of the settlement and set back development in the area by over 50 years. The first United States stockade named Fort Lauderdale was built in 1838, and subsequently was a site of fighting during the Second Seminole War. The fort was abandoned in 1842, after the end of the war, and the area remained virtually unpopulated until the 1890s. Many Florida residents say it took so long because it was haunted!

Sites of interest

Fort Lauderdale Stadium
Fort Lauderdale Swap Shop, a large indoor/outdoor flea market and site of the world's largest Drive-In movie theater (13 screens).
Hugh Taylor Birch State Park* International Swimming Hall of Fame
Las Olas Boulevard
New River Tunnel, the only tunnel on public land in the state of Florida.

According to the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention and Visitors Bureau, Fort Lauderdale is "America's top gay resort area." The city was named as the "best gay resort town" by the members of gay-interest site PlanetOut in 2006, and the city actively pursues gay and lesbian tourists. The city is also home to a large year-round population of gay residents. The Stonewall Library & Archives, believed to be the largest-circulation LGBT library in the country, is located in the city. Neighboring Wilton Manors was the second city in the country (after West Hollywood, California) to elect a gay-majority city council.


9. Clearwater, Florida Ghosts

Clearwater is a city located in central Pinellas County, Florida, USA, nearly due west of Tampa. Present-day Clearwater was originally the home of the Tocobagan Indian tribe. Around 1835, the U.S. Army began construction of Fort Harrison as an outpost during the Seminole wars. The fort was located on a bluff overlooking Clearwater Harbor in an area known today as Harbor Oaks. University of South Florida archeologists excavated the site in 1977 after Alfred C. Wyllie discovered an underground ammunition bunker while digging a swimming pool on his estate.

The area's population grew in 1842, after the Federal Armed Occupation Act of 1842 offered 160 acres to anyone who would bear arms and cultivate the land. Early settlers included the Stevens, Stevenson and McMullen families, who claimed and farmed large tracts of land. Prior to 1906, the area was known as Clear Water Harbor. The name "Clear Water" is thought to have come from a fresh water spring flowing from near where the City Hall building is located today. There were many other freshwater springs that dotted the bayfront, many in the bay itself, which were the reason for the crystal clear water found there.

Originally part of Hillsborough County, the first road joining Clearwater and Tampa was built in 1849, which dramatically reduced the prior day-long commute between the cities. The first US Post Office for Pinellas County was built on the site of the present Turner Steet Dock Park, circa 1859.

During the U.S. Civil War, Union gunboats repeatedly raided the city's supplies as most of the able-bodied men were away fighting for the Confederate States of America army. The city began booming in late nineteenth century, prompted by Henry B. Plant building the first passenger railroad line into the city 1888. Clearwater was incorporated as a town in 1891 and James E. Crane became the town's first mayor. The town's reputation as a tourist destination grew in popularity when Plant built the Belleview Biltmore in 1897.

10. Boca Raton, Florida Ghosts

Boca Raton is a city in Palm Beach County, Florida and was incorporated in May 1925. Listed on early maps as "Boca Ratones," many people wrongly assume the name is simply translated to "Rat’s Mouth." The Spanish word boca (or mouth) was often used to describe an inlet, while ratón (literally mouse) was used by Spanish sailors to describe rocks that gnawed at a ship's cable, or as a term for a cowardly thief. The name Boca Ratones originally appeared on eighteenth century maps associated with an inlet in the Biscayne Bay area of Miami.

The city's early history was as the site of Addison Mizner's Boca Raton Hotel. The "pink hotel" today is visible from miles away as a towering building on the Intracoastal Waterway. The Pearl City neighborhood of Boca Raton was established to originally house the service personnel for the hotel. Japanese farmers of the Yamato Colony converted the land west of the city into pineapple plantations beginning in 1904. During World War II much of their land was confiscated and used as the site of a major training facility for B-29 bomber crews. Much of the airbase was later donated to become the grounds of Florida Atlantic University, many of whose parking lots are former runways of the airbase, while part of the airbase is now used as Boca Raton Airport. The Japanese heritage of the Yamato Colony survives in the name of Yamato Road (NW 51st Street) just north of the airport and at the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens northwest of the city.

Boca Raton was the site of two now vanished amusement parks, Africa U.S.A. (1953-1961) and Ancient America (1953-1959). Africa U.S.A. was a wild animal park in which the tourists rode a "Jeep Safari Train" through the park. There were no fences separating the animals from the tourists on the "Jeep Safari Train".

Florida Renaissance Festival

Quiet Waters Park • 401 S Powerline Rd • Deerfield Beach 33342 • 954-776-1642 February 9th through March 9th, 2008

This remarkable annual event truly re-captures the look and feel of the Renaissance. More than 100 merchants and artisans offer wares such as handblown glass items, hammered pewter, wooden toys, pottery, and clothing. Hundreds of performers on 12 stages, as well as sword fighters, minstrels, and jousting knights. You can also participate in challenging games of chance and skill, such as archery and a human chess game. There are human-powered rides and a Kid's Kingdom, too. A highlight is the King's Feast – tickets for this event include festival admission, 5-course banquet, special entertainment, souvenir, and reserved seating at the 5pm Jousting Tournament.

Many say ghosts, UFO sightings and all that is paranormal happens in Boca Raton.

 

The Real Ghosts of Florida

What would be the best location to find an "AUTHENTIC HAUNTING IN FLORIDA" ? Top Psychic, and Paranormal investigator Mickey of Miami shares with your her favorite places to hunt ghosts. Or slowly wade into the many Mysteries of the Bermuda Triangle.

Haunted Florida is well known for its long and glorious Haunted History. Let Haunted America Tours be your "Ghostly Travel Guide" to one of America's most fascinating and paranormal destinations.

From Florida's charming Gulf Coast and "Miracle Mile" to the booming urban sprawl of Miami and the sands of the Keys, this haunted excursion has only just begun. Florida's paranormal stew is filled with something for everyone.

How about a trip to a city where everyone is a medium or psychic? Visit them at Cassadaga, where the dead go on vacation. Seances, readings, and clairvoyant advisers can make your Haunted Florida vacation something to share with the entire family -- living or dead.

Visit Haunted Florida's mysterious rock circles, said by some to be the sites of alien visitations and called by others the true "American Stonehenge." Stay for a while in Gulf Breeze, Florida, the beautiful coastal town that has become infamous for having the highest concentration of UFO sightings of any place in the United States.

St. Augustine, Florida is not only America’s Oldest City but possibly its Most Haunted City. Founded by the Spanish at the height of the Age of Discovery, St. Augustine has seen the panoramic history of America pass before its eyes. Pirates and Buccaneers once tramped the streets and crowded the bars of the this old town; generations later the same hovels were crowded with Federal soldiers at the height of the Civil War. The ghosts of the military men of many centuries haunt the forts of St. Augustine, while civil servants of a different kind still guard the shore from Haunted Lighthouses. Or try a modern take on this old town and perhaps visit a Haunted Hospital once crowded with the broken and damaged of WWII and Korea. Stay here for a while and suddenly the Sunshine State takes on a whole new aspect, one filled with dark mystery.

Come and explore the Florida Everglades, if you are not faint of heart and don't believe the tales of the screams of plane crash victims still piercing the night or the garbled gulping and slow death of those torn to bits by the alligators who call this swampy enclave home.

Or come and walk in the footsteps of famous Ponce De Leon in search of the location of the fabled Fountain of Youth. Many Floridians insist the fountain is no myth, and there are some who know the secret way and who can help you past the dangers in search of this legendary link to eternal life.

There's more to the Atlantic Coast of Florida than just the well known Daytona Speedway and Spring break. For those in search of a more historic atmosphere, take a tour following in the footsteps of the famous 54th Massachusetts Infantry, who fought their way down the eastern Florida coast, leaving dead Confederates in their wake. Follow the path of these famous Soldiers of Color and stay for a while at the bed and breakfast where the Commander of the 54th, Col. Edward Needles Hallowell, planned the strategy the famous regiment would use at the Battle of Olustee. Tour the battle site and visit the graves and monuments, where numerous visitors have reported orbs and ghostly mists developing in their souvenir photos.

And there's more to Central Florida than just a shrine to a mouse. What goes on behind the scenes at some of the most fabulous family destinations might chill your bones. The tales of the mechanics and engineers who have lost their lives keeping the wheels of fantasy running are too numerous to tell here, but just ask anyone who's been victimized by one of the many amusement park poltergeists and you might get the idea. Also disturbing is the child who perished in a famous gondola ride but never left it, seemingly joining the cast of mechanical characters, and the parents who "never want to hear that song again!" Then there are the numerous stories of the haunted hotel rooms, and the Spring break students who check in but sometimes never check out.

Haunted Tales from Florida’s sun kissed beaches abound and would not be complete without the treasure of all haunting's, Haunted Key West. Where else might generations of ghostly cats try to steal your soul or Robert the Haunted Doll try to follow you home?

From artists who still linger in Victorian era homes, and long dead morticians who still attempt to practice their craft on less than willing victims, or the unrelenting spirit of Elvira who likes to hang around the famous Hanging Tree in the middle of Captain Tony's famous bar, Key West is brimming with the unusual and the unexplainable.

There are the ghosts of famous writers and famous seafarers, of light housemen and soldiers, of rum-runners and Cuban refugees, and the disturbing but true tale of the eye doctor who had an eye for necrophilia and kept the body of his paramour around long after she should have been peacefully at rest.

Not resting very peacefully either is the little stuffed doll called Robert who long ago lost his owner, but is always looking for a new one. Those of you in the market for bringing home a little "souvenir" might get more than you bargain for when you visit Robert at his museum home.

The Ghosts of Key West truly rise to the occasion and help make any visit to Florida's second oldest city one that you will never forget. Ghosts of cigar makers, pirates, wreckers, and Voodoo practitioners all await you. While their ghostly journeys continue through time, yours is just about to begin courtesy of Haunted America Tours.

You won't be sorry if you travel this haunted road into the unknown reaches of Haunted Florida. So the next time you find yourself humming that little tune about the "sunshine and sea breeze of Florida" you might want to add a verse or two about ghosts and haunting's! Come now and bask in the paranormal phenomena that is uniquely Haunted Florida.
