Why is Miami So Haunted?

Under the palm trees and blue skies lie a ton of spooky spirits. Miami is the only major city in the US founded by a woman. Julia Tuttle owned the land the town was founded upon and worked alongside railroad tycoon Henry Flagler to drive economic growth in the city. Miami faced hardships early on, such as a deadly freeze and a powerful hurricane, which slowed economic growth.

 

In the mid 20th century, immigration to the city from Caribbean countries like Cuba and Haiti shaped the city’s culture, and the Mariel Boatlift in the 1980s brought thousands of Cuban refugees. The city was also plagued by violence as cartels fought for control of the lucrative drug market.

Today, South Florida remains the capital of Latin and Caribbean culture in the US, and the city’s nightlife is said to be one of the best in the world. But the city’s also got plenty of haunts. The ghosts of Prohibition Era gangsters and rum runners can be found all over the city, in places like the Biltmore Hotel, the Villa Casa Casuarina, and the Coconut Grove Playhouse.

The ghosts of South Florida are lurking right around the corner…don’t keep them waiting! Book your Miami ghost tour with Lizzie Borden Ghost Tours today!

Why should you tour with us?

Icon
You want to uncover Miami's bizarre history

Did you know, that for a couple of years, in the 80s and 90s, the FBI classified Miami as the “Murder Capital of the world”? Or that, during WWII SoBE was a military camp? The whole place full of soldiers and machinery in training or waiting to be deployed to the European front? Our tour is thoroughly researched and based on hundreds of documented ghost sightings and recorded hauntings.

Icon
You love hearing stories about Al Capone

The legendary gangster, Al Capone, once called Miami his home. Miami, during the 30s and 40s, was inundated by some of the nation’s biggest crime lords. Each enjoyed the drinks and the beach, each making deals and showing regional bootleggers who was the boss. Some of their backdoor dealings spilled onto the streets and those consequences rapidly became ghosts. 

Icon
You want to make it a spooky date night

There’s a reason horror movies are iconically linked to romance and why bad boys and bad girls are so irresistible. The vampire is always dashing and our bodies feel the rush of adrenaline when we’re thrilled or terrified silly, with those feelings of butterflies churning in our stomachs. Join us on this less than romantic, but highly titillating tour. 

Icon
You're a fan of Scarface

South Beach has been for the last decade one of the most photographed and filmed spots on the planet. Dozens of TV Series, Sports events, and films have been shot on its iconic Ocean Drive. Join us as we tell ghostly tales on the streets where Bad Boys was filmed, where Dexter Morgan stalked his prey, and where Iron Man fell from the sky. Maybe, you might stumble upon your favorite celebrity. 

Icon
You've done all the shopping, now you're ready for a different kind of fun

Sooner or later you’re going to get tired of going to some of Miami’s biggest outlets. Sawgrass Mills Mall is great but after day it becomes overwhelming. The same is bound to happen with the beach — all good until you forget to put on sunscreen. Thankfully there’s more to SoBe than just that. Get a different view of the city, one filled owl spine-tingling tales, and a devilish amount of mischief. 

Icon
You want to experience a unique ghost tour

This isn’t your parent’s type of walkabout — this is dark tourism at its best. In what other type of tour would you hear tales of secret government experiments, Narcos, and mobsters? What other type of tour starts with the story of a deranged mass murderer? If you’re tired of traditional tours and want something nasty and fun to really dig your teeth into, then you’re lucky you stumbled upon our service.

THE MOST HAUNTED PLACES IN MIAMI, FL

Casa Casuarina

You may not be familiar with the name Casa Casuarina. But you may know it from its original name: the Versace Mansion. That's right, the lavish palace where fashion mogul Gianni Versace lived, worked, and eventually met his tragic fate is right in the heart of Miami. Casa Casuarina was designed with many trap doors and secret passageways, not by Gianni's design but by the original architect, Alden Freeman. Some say you can hear the former residents of the casa shuffling through passageways in the walls and overhead while you sleep.

Betsy Hotel

The historic Betsy Hotel on Ocean Drive represents Miami’s first golden era: the 1920s and '30s. An architectural jewel and namesake of American heroine Betsy Ross, the hotel is also the site of some unique, historical activity. The Betsy has figured in almost every war effort since its foundation. It serves as a strategic naval and military base, given its access to the Gulf. But those historical events give it an eerie atmosphere, too—some say you can hear the marching footfalls of soldiers ringing through the halls at night.

Mac's Club Deuce

Mac's Club Deuce is an iconic dive bar in South Beach, where the liquor flows quick and the patrons are quicker. Pass through the pastel and neon exterior into a den of jukebox jives and ghostly vibes. The Club Deuce was the location for the wrap party for Miami Vice in the '80s, and that captures its lawless spirit, also playing home to drug dealers, rum runners, and other criminal types whose spirits you might see knocking spurs on moonless nights.
