After seeing Ghost Hunters St Augustine's episode, I decided to plan a two day vacation to St Augustine and try to see for myself. It was my first time there and decided to explore the oldest city in America. I visited the usual tourist attractions like the Fort and the old Augustine. I also looked into the ghost tours. After asking a couple of store vendors which one to take, they pointed me to the Lighthouse and the old jail trolley tour.
The trolley tour was ok but I felt it was more designed for a younger crowd. I did like the stories but unfortunately, I didn't experience any paranomal activity.
So I called it a night and went back to my hotel room. The hotel was the Holiday Inn Express and was about 5 miles from downtown. I took a shower and went to bed. I woke up around 3:45 am to use the bathroom.
When I got up out of bed, I noticed my sneakers were moved to the middle of the room and were next to each other facing opposite directions! I was in awe and got chills because those same sneakers were in a corner when I kicked them off 4 hours earlier. So you know now I can't sleep lol. I decided to take photos around the room to try to catch anything but caught nothing. I turned on the tv and began channel surfing. A hour or so passed and I fell asleep.
Around 5am I woke up again sweating and I couldn't move. I felt like something was pushing on me. I couldn't move my arms or get out of the bed. This went on for about 10-15 minutes. Now I'm freaked out so I left my room and purchased a soda at the vending area. I did not want to go back but I had to collect my things. I went back grabbed my things and checked out. When I was at the front desk, I proceeded to tell my story.
The clerk told me that they had an incident a week ago. It was in a different room. She said that her coworker went to a room to change out an older clock. She brought in a new one, placed it on the wall and the hands on the dial kept spinning out of control. This happened two more times with different clocks.
In conclussion, save your money from the trolley tour and stay at the Holiday Inn Express (room 201)
