A Weekend in St. Augustine

ST. AUGUSTINE, FLORIDA -- Friday, May 13 through Sunday, May 15, 2005, Southern Ghosts and their weekend guests will take a journey and attempt to "touch" the past. If there is one place in the United States where paranormal phenomena and history meld together, it's St. Augustine!

Founded 42 years before the English colonized Jamestown and 55 years before the pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock, St. Augustine is the nation's oldest standing relic. Since the Spanish founded the colony in 1565, wars, fires, and diseases have all tried their hand at destroying St. Augustine's very foundations, but in the end, the city survived. Today, St. Augustine stands as a testament to man's courage in the face of hardship.

For paranormal investigators, St. Augustine represents the oldest paranormal time capsule in the United States. The American Institute of Parapsychology (AIP) has conducted investigations in such places as the Castillo de San Marcos (completed in 1695), the Huguenot Cemetery (opened in 1821 during a yellow fever epidemic), the Spanish Bakery courtyard (located in the historic Plaza), the Tolomato Cemetery (1777), the St. Augustine Lighthouse, Murphy's Pour House, the St. Francis Inn, Harry's Restaurant and the Old St. Augustine Village (site of original settlement in 1565).

Southern Ghosts has had many compelling paranormal experiences in this city, as well as a great deal of feedback from people who have shared similar experiences. Many people have inquired as to when Southern Ghost will conduct a weekend event there again. In light of this, Southern Ghosts has set up "A Weekend in St. Augustine" from Friday, May 13 through Sunday, May 15, 2005. Join Southern Ghost as they conduct an exclusive investigation of Harry's Restaurant and experience the full flavor of one of America's oldest, and most haunted, cities.

A Weekend in St. Augustine package includes:
  • Accommodations for two nights at the Best Western Spanish Quarter Inn, located next to historic St. George Street
  • 90-minute ghost tour of St. Augustine that will include first-hand accounts from Southern Ghosts and AIP field investigations of various properties throughout the city.
  • Exclusive investigation of Harry's Restaurant with AIP Field Investigators Investigation at surprise location!
  • Complimentary Southern Ghosts gift bag
  • Complimentary Breakfast

Cost for the entire weekend package, which includes all of the above activities and amenities, is as follows:

  • $550 (single occupancy)
  • $550 (double occupancy)
  • $250 (each additional person)

Payment in full is required to reserve a room. You can pay by credit card using PayPal ( or call 407-234-6611 to send a check. A $200 non-refundable cancellation fee is in effect, and a 30-day cancellation policy also is in effect, which means that you must cancel at least 30 days before the event (April 13, 2005) in order to receive the balance of your payment (minus the $200 cancellation fee). If you fail to cancel at least 30 days out, you will forfeit the entire payment.
