Beach Destination

Jacksonville Beach

This sunny and fun beach town is perfect to visit in October due to its intriguing dark side. Many notable haunted landmarks are in the area, including the Jacksonville Beach lifeguard station, said to be one of the most haunted places in the Sunshine State. The station is said to be haunted by a ghostly drowning victim and a lifesaver known as Todd. Casa Marina Hotel, Ginger’s Place, 33 Star Rock and Roll Boutique and Taco Lulu also have haunted histories.
