Tis the season to scare the crap out of oneself. While I’m no expert on this sort of thing, each year I pull together a post that shares information about haunted houses in the area. Full disclaimer – I’ve not attended any of these locations so share your comments to help others pick and choose the best haunted house.
Below the listing of haunted houses you’ll also find a number of ‘activities’ for visiting Salem, MA this month and below that is more information about Halloween themed attractions throughout New England that you can enjoy.

Spooky World may be the largest haunted house in New England. Based on feedback I read online, you’ll want to purchase either their VIP or Super VIP tickets, but these come at a hefty price, starting at $65 (VIP) or $80 (Super VIP) on Friday and Saturday nights. For more information visit their website, Nightmarenewengland.com.

Halloween Season in Salem, MA
Few cities or towns in the world embrace the Halloween holiday like Salem, MA. For those who have never visited this town in October, I would highly recommend it. When I was in my 20s a friend of mine had an apartment overlooking the Salem Common and I’d go to his annual Halloween party. They remain some of my favorite memories.Visiting Salem?
