Amongst all the vacation destinations that you can find haunted places in, Florida is the last place most people will think of. But don't forget that behind the paradise beaches, luxury condos and Disney fun, the state of Florida has the oldest history in the country, and some of the most strange legacies in the world, which makes for some significant haunts.

Think of it, this is where many have come to "find a new life" when considering the pirates and modern day people that are finding sanctuary from proximal lands of tyranny. In addition, consider the many that spent the last days of their lives to live in sunshine, one of the hottest choices for retirement relocation. Most of all, consider the historical pages that were made possible by those that explored and found the beauties of Florida, starting with the many Native American territories that were established years before European explorers found this peninsula. From the antiquity of St. Augustine to the oddities of the Ringling Circus estate, to the "Isle of Bones" now known as Key West, the sunshine state can be pretty spooky.
