Deering Estate is known as one of the most haunted places in South Florida, and guests can explore the history of the Deering Estate and step into the past on a ghost tour during the month of October.
Guides will share stories of historic events, insights into previous inhabitants and the record of paranormal activity experienced by visitors and staff. Walk the same paths that indigenous people, Miami’s early settlers, and even Charles Deering have walked as we navigate the moments that linger.
Dress comfortably. It is recommended to wear closed toe shoes, and to bring your own flashlight and mosquito repellent. Tour may contain mature subject matter and is recommended for ages 9 and older. Equipment used to detect paranormal activity such as pendulums, dowsing rods, EMF meters and cameras are welcome.
Ghost tours are offered on Oct. 5, 7, 12, 14, 19, 21 and 26, from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. Cost is $40 per person and space is limited. Purchase tickets online in advance at deeringestate.org.
