Big Sur, California

Nestled on the rocky coastline between Carmel and Big Sur, the Point Sur lighthouse sits perched on a volcanic rock, dutifully warning nearby ships that the Pacific’s treacherous coast approaches. Despite its powerful beam, the Point Sur lighthouse has witnessed its share of shipwrecks. The spirits of those who perished in the many wrecks are said to haunt the lighthouse and its surrounding buildings – a tall man in dark blue, 19th-century garb has often been seen lingering around the historic tower. The lighthouse is now part of Point Sur State Historic Park and is open for guided tours. For an extra-creepy experience, sign up for the moonlight tour, or participate in one of their ghost tours, held every October.
