Haunted Places, Halloween Treats, and Spine-tingling Delights

So you’ve hit the traditional hayrides and pumpkin patch with your friends and family, but you’re looking for something a bit scarier to raise the hair on your arms?

How about a visit to one of the most horrifying Haunted House in America? Looking to find something closer to home? Weird & Haunted Illinois has so many cool places to check out that you’ll be set for the next 10 Halloweens! Did you know that America’s Most Haunted Places includes the famous Bachelor’s Grove Cemetery?

If you are staying home and throwing a party, consider having Glow-in-dark drinks to complete the ambiance. Other ideas for party treats that are kid-friendly yet charming for Halloween-lovers of any age are here.

Maybe you just want to stay home, pass out candy to the little ones, and watch the It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. Well, don’t forget another Halloween classic (that is my absolute favorite) The Legend of Sleepy Hallow, which is now called The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad. It’s the tale of the Headless Horseman narrated by Bing Crosby.  Take a peek at it:

Maybe finish the night off with a glass of wine by the fire while listening to some of these classical pieces.
