Scare Yourself Silly This Halloween with Miami’s Best Nighttime Ghost Tours

Walk the graves of Miami's founders, visit the sights of murders, mysteries and gruesome activities, and learn a bit about Miami’s spooky history while you’re at it - a ghost tour is a memorable way to give yourself a fright this Halloween! The leaves may not change colors here and the weather remains warm and tropical, but that doesn't mean Miami doesn’t know how to do Halloween right.

You may accidentally find yourself close to some of Miami’s haunted sites. They’re hiding in plain sight: The Biltmore Hotel, a luxe place to stay in historic Coral Gables, is notoriously haunted (the Dade Heritage Trust offers regular walking tours, but they aren’t exclusively focused on the hotel’s frightening history as a World War II hospital), as is the DuPont Building in Downtown, near some of the area’s best restaurants and nightlife. If you're in Little Haiti, be on the look out for the abandoned Villa Paula, formerly the Cuban Consulate and a famously haunted locale.
