The Deering Estate in Miami is reviving its Historic Ghost Tour of the estate, allowing guests to hear stories of Deering’s previous residents and of the paranormal activity that has been experienced by staff and visitors on the grounds.
Starting Sept. 3, guests ages 6 and older can tour the historic homes at night, walking the same areas that Native Americans and Miami’s early pioneers walked. Parents, please note, the tour may contain mature subject matter, and face masks are required for all guests.
Ghost hunting equipment, such as pendulums, dowsing rods, EMF meters and cameras, are welcome. Guests are also asked to wear closed-toe shoes and bring a flashlight. Mosquito repellent is recommended.
Ghost tours are offered Thursday and Saturday nights for $35 per person. Schedule a tour online at deeringestate.org/events/category/miami-nature-eco-tours/ or call 305-235-1668, press 9, then dial ext. 233.
Space is limited, so early reservations are recommended.
For those looking to see the Deering Estate at night without the paranormal, the estate also offers a monthly Herp Tour to give guests a good look at the snakes, amphibians and reptiles that live in the restricted natural areas on the estate. Call or go online for reservations.
