There’s Something Incredibly Unique About This One Tiny Town In Florida

Cassadaga is a tiny community in Volusia County that has become a somewhat famously quirky Florida destination. It’s off I-4, but you’d still have to really be looking for it to find it. The town is very small, but its roots go back over 120 years. That’s when George P. Colby, a traveling medium from New York, was guided by spirits to found the community in 1895.

Though it’s not far from the large tourist destinations in Orlando and Daytona, the town that’s nicknamed the “Psychic Capital of the World” is actually quite small and unassuming. If you’re hoping to see something spectacular or stay in a fancy resort, you will probably be disappointed. If you’re interested in meeting with a psychic, contacting a departed loved one, or learning more about anything that falls within the realm of Spirtualism, then you will probably enjoy this trip. There are also historical tours and nighttime spirit encounters, for those hoping to learn more about the town or to catch otherworldly orbs on film.

If you visit, stop by the Cassadaga Hotel is a quaint historic lodge, which is decorated with antiques and has a nice restaurant and gift shop. Here are a few photos of what you’ll discover in this tiny but interesting town:
