2. Key West: Haunted Pub Crawl Walking Tour
Take a look at the Key West's dark past on a haunted pub crawl walking tour. From the island’s demonic dolls to one infamous case of necrophilia, not everything is glamorous in paradise. Hear all these stories with a drink in your hand as you make your way from bar to bar over an evening.
First, head to Captain Tony’s Saloon — Key West’s most eccentric bar with bras on the ceiling and fake bodies beneath the floors. The peculiar tree in the middle of the bar has stained the ground it sits on, its victims still roaming the stools and bottles.
Then make your way to Wine-O Bar & Lounge — a staple of Key West’s largest building, La Cocha Hotel. But with great praise comes great tragedy, as being the tallest building makes you a prime candidate for suicide. And with tragic suicides come tragic hauntings.
Next, head over to The Roost, which serves some of the best cocktails in Key West. It's also neighbors to one of America’s most haunted city blocks. There is Key West Theater, a place that houses many shows but used to house children’s screams. And there is the Artist House, which used to be the home to a cursed doll.
Learn about how the Dean-Lopez Funeral Home was once home to a lover’s obsession gone wrong and the lengths he took to bring back the dead.
Finally, stroll over to the old-fashioned Old Town Tavern & Beer Garden. You might find the spirit of Ernest Hemmingway frequenting it, since his Key West home is right down the street.
