Things to do in Sanford: Ghost ToursCozy and quaint Sanford is one of Central Florida’s oldest cities, boasting brick-lined streets, elegant oaks, and nineteenth-century Victorian homes to prove it. Sanford has deep roots rich in history, which is evident as you stroll through its historic downtown sector. Sanford Ghost Tours is a unique way to experience downtown Sanford like never before and learn a bit about the past through past residents’ eyes.

How Sanford Ghost Tours Began

In 2011, Gary Holmes founded Sanford Ghost Tours. With a passion for learning about the town’s history, he uncovered stories of ghostly encounters from local residents. These stories tell of Sanford’s mysterious side and provide a glimpse into the lives of previous residents and what Sanford was like; how it has grown and changed over the years, and yet in other ways stayed the same. Holmes decided that he wanted to provide the same experience to residents and visitors, and thus Sanford Ghost Tours began.

What Can You Expect During Your Tour?

Each tour lasts about an hour and a half and takes place on most Fridays and Saturdays at 7:00 PM. Tickets begin at $20. Book your tour here.
