aboutTons of fun things to do in Florida!

Sep 13, 2013 - Visiting the Old Jail

Many would assume that you would expect paranormal activities or happenings in cemeteries, but did you know that such happenings also exist in old jails? For those who are brave and enjoy visiting “spooky” places, there are a lot of places that one can do that. But, if you want an extraordinary kind of experience, then visiting the Old Jail at 167 San Marco Avenue, St Augustine, Florida is just place that you might want to consider going with your friends.

If you have always been fascinated with the supernatural and paranormal things in life, and you are also one of those really daring ones, why not plan a trip with your friends (if they are as daring as you are, that is) to take up a Ghost Tour at the Old Jail this coming Halloween? Sounds like a crazy, ghostly idea? Of course it is – and it will be one that you and your friends will remember for the rest of your lives. The Ghost Tour at the Old Jail is available on Friday and Saturday nights, from 7pm until 10pm, but advanced reservations or bookings are required, so be sure to check their website for details in making a reservation for the tour. The Ghost tour takes about one hour and twenty minutes, and they do not encourage participation from those who are 13 years old and below due to the nature of the tour. They also encourage visitors or participants to wear comfortable shoes as they will be doing a lot of walking during the tour.

If you prefer not to have a scary, ghostly tour at the Old Jail, they also welcome visitors during the day, but we don’t guarantee that it is less scary or less spooky during the day. You and your friends will, however, learn about the history of the Old Jail and some of the notorious criminals who have met their Creator here. Also, don’t be too shocked or surprised if you do hear some weird sounds as you tour the place. They say that lingering spirits are literally there to make their presence felt. Don’t forget to make a booking for a FL charter bus for this trip to the Old Jail with your friends – you will be glad that you did, especially if some of your friends are spooked out after the tour, and they can’t wait for you to get your car key out so that they can climb back into the car immediately and head home.
