Want to know what the future holds? Central Floridians don’t have to travel far to pursue these answers. Nestled in the heart of Volusia County is the unincorporated town of Cassadaga, best known as the Psychic Capital of the World. Cassadaga was founded in the late 1800s in true Florida fashion, as its founder George Colby was guided by a vision to travel south to Florida. He formed the Southern Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp, and the rest is history.
Flash forward to present day, and the town has exactly the eclectic, quirky vibe one might expect. The perfect place to begin your visit is at the Cassadaga Hotel. Whether you’re an out-of-towner looking for a place to stay for the night or you’re simply visiting for the afternoon, step into the historic hotel. Enjoy the beautiful interiors, grab a cup of coffee, visit the gift shop, or schedule a reading. The hotel has several in-house psychics and mediums, and offers classes in reiki, tarot, and more.
No trip is complete without a psychic reading. I’ve gone to two separate places and received very different readings. At The Purple Rose, I had my tarot cards read a few years ago and things looked pretty bleak. (You don’t have to be a psychic to know that the Three of Swords is not a happy card to pull from the deck!) However, I enjoyed my 15-minute mini reading, and a lot of what the psychic told me later did come true. They also offer couples readings and sell metaphysical items like crystals.
On my most recent trip to Cassadaga, I received a crystal ball reading at the Cassadaga Spiritualist Psychic Center, which also offers tarot card and palm readings, astrology charts, numerology reports, and more. The reading was incredibly relevant and brought up some very specific things in my life, so I will wholeheartedly recommend this psychic center!
After Your Reading
If you’re looking for something fun to do after your reading, DeLand is only a hop, skip, and a jump away. DeLand’s historic downtown is home to countless antique shops and other cool businesses. Grab lunch at Byte Bistro or The Table before hitting the stores. For a more comprehensive guide to Downtown DeLand, check out my recent post.
Whether you believe in psychic mediums or simply want to try something new, Cassadaga should be on your list of places to visit!
