Holiday to die for

Halloween is almost here! Haunted destinations to whom are feeling brave this season! A trip to one of these spooky spots may really be a holiday to die for!

The ghosts at this notorious prison are anything but friendly. Once the holding place for some of America’s most infamous criminals, dozens of prisoners met an untimely end on this island. Their souls are said to restlessly wander the cell blocks, chilling visitors with ominous whispering, blood-curdling screams and sudden drops in temperature.

Voodoo, vampires and lost souls can all be uncovered in New Orleans. Many of the local spirits have a friendly reputation, entertaining the living with bursts of music and laughter. The exception is those that haunt the infamous LaLaurie Mansion, where grisly scenes of torture were discovered at the home of one of the city’s most well known socialites.

Get ready to be bewitched by the city of Salem. Famous for igniting the mass hysteria that swept America, the Salem Witch trials resulted in the imprisonment of hundreds of people and dozens of executions. Legend has it that the souls of those wrongfully sentenced now haunt the streets, searching for justice.

 This hotel was the inspiration for The Shining and has several eternal guests. Spirits haunt this hotel's halls, spreading mischief and scaring unsuspecting visitors. The echoes of ghostly piano music can be heard from the Concert Hall, as one of the hotel's original founders, Flora Stanley, returns decades after her demise to tickle the ivories.
