St. Augustine,  Florida
Relax on the veranda of this B&B and let the click-clack of horse-drawn carriages set the pace in what is actually the oldest city in the United States. Request a second-floor suite with views of the St. Augustine Lighthouse. If you're awakened by footsteps overhead, it's likely the ghost of the Lady with the Lantern. As proprietor of the inn during Prohibition, this young widow arranged a profitable—and romantic—partnership with a seafaring rumrunner. If the Feds were close, she would climb to the roof, lantern in hand, to warn her lover and his crew. Recently, tenants of adjacent properties have complained of a bright light shining at night; no identifiable source has been discovered. Passersby along the shore have claimed to see her silhouette. Perhaps she doesn't realize that the inn's popular Tini Martini bar is completely legal.
