There was a time when Having a resident ghost at your establishment in Ybor City was a quietly whispered secret. Best not to stir things up, the prevailinig logic went, might affect business.

Today, ghosts have become big business and accordingly, they are coming out of the closet everywhere. If a business in Ybor City doesn’t have a haunting, they might just invent one to stay up with the trends.

The OFFICIAL Ybor City Ghost Tour is fortunate that we don’t have to shake would-be spirits out of the rafters, so to speak. On a nightly basis we visit the two most well-established haunted sites in Ybor, the Cuban Club and the Don Vicente Inn. The amount of paranormal activity that we have experienced in these two sites could practically fill a book, and you can get a feel for some of that by visiting our Facebook page. These occurences, and our outstanding guides, have earned us the distinction of being named the Number 1 Ghost Tour in the U.S.

But things are changing in Ybor City. A new hotel is scheduled along 7th Ave and there is talk of new uses for some old historic buildings. It is conceivable now, for the first time, that a day may come when access to some of these extraordinary sites might be restricted.

But that is for the future. For now, at least, we still have exclusive access to these two amazing sites. So why not take advantage while the opportunity is still here. Join us for one of our nightly tours soon. Or one day you might end up chasing fake ghosts around town.

None the less, we decided we could always search for the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future; but mostly just past.

After talking to a friend about a ghost tour she had done in downtown Tampa, I was super amped on finding one to do in Ybor given all the amazing history of the area. I reached out to Lonnie of The Official Ybor City Ghost Tour and he let me know tours were open for December, so we promptly scheduled our tour for mid December. Nicholas, Ryan, two friends and I headed over to King Corona where we…
