St. Augustine is one of the most haunted cities in America. It was founded in 1565 and is the oldest continuously occupied settlement of European origin in the continental United States. With over 400 years of history, it’s had plenty of time for spirits to settle in and make St. Augustine their permanent home. 

The city has several haunted spots that are listed on the Florida and National Register of Haunted Places. If you’re heading to this charming, old-world town, it’s worth learning why and how these places have made the list. Though there is no shortage of ghost tours, here are our top picks for a hauntingly good date night in St. Augustine. 

And naturally, you can find a few great ghost tours in Tampa Bay too!
