Key West? How the heck is that place haunted? By ghosts of people who died while sun-tanning and drinking margaritas? Ooooh, scaaaaaaary.

Ive heard of Gettysburg being massively haunted (if you believe that stuff), which makes sense to me seeing that 55,000 people died there in 3 days. But Key West? Odd.

Key West had all those ship scavengers and nefarious under-belly type folks in its early history..... bet they are the ones doing the haunting!
Besides that, i bet some of the drag queens could be quite unpleasant in the after-life!

I'm sorry... but I just can't see big cities being 'Haunted'... or big ones.
Places like New Orleans, Birmingham, San Antonio, etc... places that are famous for being old looking and Historical... so... LA...nu uh...

What determines if a place is haunted or not? I'm not God so I don't know, but I would assume spiritual energies could be anywhere, just like people.

I think they collect "ghost stories" from different sources and figure out which cities have the most and maybe the most prevalent. Biography Channel had a thing about hauntings in New Orleans last night.

Definitley surprised to see Los Angeles and Miami on the list.

I'm probably have to add Arlington, Virginia and Honolulu (Pearl Harbor) to it.
