Best Places To Go For Halloween For Adults in 2023

Best Places to go for Halloween

The month of sweet-smelling pumpkin treats and roasted seeds is here. The fragrance is evocative of your childhood. It is also a reminder to think about the enthusiastic young minds and help them prep for the Halloween fun. But if you are planning grand, get set to experience frightful decors and scary ghost tours across the cities in the US. We have curated a list of the top best places to go for Halloween for adults.

Here are the three spookiest cities in the US to visit in 2023

New Orleans, Louisiana

The magical city of New Orleans is one the best Halloween vacation destinations in the US. Slavery is a massive part of its history. The city witnessed bloody fights and battles that left many dead in the past. Consequently, the city is considered one of the scariest and most haunted cities. Voodoo is practiced here, too, adding to the appeal.

Stay at Le Pavilion Hotel in New Orleans. Built in 1907, visitors, guests, and staff have reported seeing unusual figures in their rooms, and legend has it that bed sheets are often tugged late in the night, and strange noises are heard too. Some even experienced shower heads opening and closing in the night. Spooky indeed!

Salem, Massachusetts

This is one of the best cities for Halloween because of its numerous spooky historical sites. The celebrations last the entire month. The traditions started as early as 1692 when witch trials took place in Salem. Over 200 people were accused of practicing dark arts during that period, and 19 out of them were burnt alive. Today, this city attracts those who take an interest in history and can tour the Salem Witch Museum. There are also Howard Street Cemetry, Burying Point Cemetery, Proctor’s Ledge, and The Witch House.

Put up at The Red Lion Inn, which is well known for the paranormal experience on the fourth floor of the house. A man with a top hat and a young girl are randomly seen on this floor. There are inexplicable electrical issues, sudden door knocks, and cold spots experienced by staff and guests. Give it a go if you have the guts for it.
