7 spooky places to visit this Halloween

7 spooky places to visit this Halloween

With the month of October comes the changing of leaves, a noticeable chill in the air and the return of Halloween spirit, complete with costumes, candy and spooky decorations. If you are a fan of Halloween, interested in history or the unusual, now is the perfect time to start planning a spooky Halloween trip. We’ve put together a list of some of the spookiest places to visit.

Insurance can reduce your risk of a travel nightmare

But before we get to the list, let’s talk about how to get there safely. Travel insurance and trip insurance can protect you financially and physically. When you travel abroad, you can’t rely on your domestic healthcare to cover you. This is where travel insurance comes in. Should you fall ill or become injured and need medical attention away from your home country, travel insurance can help you get quality medical care for a price that doesn’t break the bank. Trip insurance offers coverage for things like lost, damaged or delayed baggage, stolen passports, and missed connection costs. So as you venture into the depths of these deep dark places. Buy travel insurance and stay safe. Because not having travel insurance when you need it the most, might just be the scariest thing of all.

7 spooky places to visit this Halloween

 

 

Salem Witch Museum in Salem, Massachusetts

 

1. Salem, MA – The location of the Salem Witch Trials in the late 17th century, Salem Massachusetts is one of the United States most notorious spooky locations. Modern Salem embraces its macabre history and comes alive very Halloween. Visit Salem for Halloween fun. Pro tip: extend your getaway to include a two-hour road trip north to Laconia, New Hampshire for its annual pumpkin festival, which includes pumpkin carving and pumpkin recipe competitions. Not too spooky, but a lot of fun.

 

Paris Catacombs

 

2. Paris, France – A location known for its stunning views and historical and cultural wonders, Paris also has a little-known dark side. Must-see spooky attractions include the Paris Catacombs, a tunnel underneath the city that is constructed of millions of human skeletons, the Pre Lachaise Cemetery, which has many graves of famous authors and musicians and the Muse des Vampires, the worlds first vampire museum. Enter if you dare!

 

cemetary in Saint Roch, New Orleans, Louisiana

 

3. New Orleans, LA – A U.S. city known for its legends and haunted attractions, New Orleans, Louisiana will not disappoint as a Halloween destination. Thousands of visitors flock to the Big Easy each year for the annual Halloween parade, where dressing in costume is highly encouraged. Visitors can also take haunted tours of the city and cemeteries and explore their spiritual side by visiting one of the many Voodoo shops throughout the city.

Disney castle castle at Disney

 

4. Disney Parks (Orlando, FL & Anaheim, CA) – Disneyland in Anaheim, California and Disney World in Orlando, Florida go all out each Halloween by decorating the park, dressing up the characters and hosting Halloween parties and parades. This may be more festive than spooky but it’s a great place to get the whole family involved in some Halloween fun. A family-friendly attraction for all ages, be sure to visit the Haunted Mansion ride, ogle at all the jack-o-lanterns on Main Street and take in the Halloween-themed fireworks display.

 

 

5. Transylvania, Central Romania – When most people think of Transylvania, they also think of vampires.
