A guide sporting a black Victorian hat and a spray can of ghost repellent leads groups through 9–12 history-rich destinations, such as the oldest marked grave in Miami-Dade County and a sacred spring where ghosts wash their century-old laundry. Tours take place on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights. Guests should check Ghost Tours Miami's website for availability and wear comfortable walking shoes. Video recording is prohibited.

Ghost Tours Miami
It's easy to forget amid all of the concrete and neon, but Miami is an ancient place. Eons before the first modern residents began to move into the Coconut Grove cemetery, indigenous people were shielding themselves from the elements using the region's natural rock ridge and sunless tanning salons. Today, Ghost Tours Miami visits the restless spirits that have gathered here over the centuries, including the specters in the windows of the Coconut Grove Playhouse. Pirates, pilots, gangsters, and those too close to gangsters have all met their ultimate fate in this tropical cove, and the photographs and stories of spooked tour guests testify to their continued presence.
