Historic Ghost Tours of Punta Gorda, Florida

Punta Gorda Ghost Walking TourGhostly tales are shared year-round by Danse Macabre Productions with their weekly Historic Ghost Tours. The group has been researching Charlotte Countys paranormal activity for more than 25 years and shares stories of hauntings and history with Punta Gorda vacationers.Historic Ghost Tours of Punta Gorda Offered Year-round Every Saturday at 8 p.m.

Ms. Erin Broemel, a paranormal researcher and former paranormal investigator, leads tours usually in nineteenth century costume. She has studied paranormal activity for more than 15 years.

Most ghost stories are about those who lived in Punta Gorda during the turn of the twentieth century such as the prominent Sandlin, Gilchrist, and Trabue families. Stories of playful spirits haunting Punta Gorda houses and businesses are told. These tales are historically based, eerie and some will probably send shivers down spines but they are not bloody, gory stories. Many tales are the results of paranormal activity and research.

Offered year-round, the tour is led every Saturday night at 8 p.m. from downtowns Gilchrist Park. Historic Ghost Tours of Punta Gorda costs $10 for adults, $7 for Seniors and $5 for children between the ages of 5 and 12 years-old.

During Halloween a ghost walking tour is offered through Indian Springs Cemetery which many paranormal investigators claim has strong paranormal activity. With more than 2,000 burials, it is believed to be the second oldest cemetery in Charlotte County and is the final resting place of Albert Gilchrist, 20th Governor of Florida and one of Punta Gordas founders. Headstones date to the 1800s through the twenty-first century. Tour participants stand near headstones to hear stories of ghost sightings and tales about some of the cemeterys residents.

A Christmas walking tour of Punta Gorda is available Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights during the holidays. The lantern guided tour includes local history, Christmas tales and reading from the Charles Dickens classic, A Christmas Carol.
