ok boys and ghouls, this is a special edition dedicated to all things scary in honor of Halloween ... and let me tell you, I want to scare the pants off of you!! Unfortunately, I can’t do that sitting at my computer, but I can tell you where to go for a frightfully good time.
I feel like the Bay Area is in love with Halloween because there are so many options to choose from. You can get idea by checking here and filling in your stipulations for something in your area. I have done some research and found the best haunts in the area, just to help you narrow down your choices.
Have a fun and safe Halloween everybody!!
This is the story of the wife of the man that invented the Winchester Rifle. She believed that all the spirits of people who were shot and killed by her husband’s invention, would come back and kill her. So she built staircases that led to nowhere and doorways that opened to brick walls… all so the spirits couldn’t find her. Experience this tour with flashlights, oh and watch your step.
Runs through Nov 3

Since I grew up in Morgan Hill, Hollister was only a 20 minute drive for me… but to all you North Bay folks, this fright fest is totally worth the drive. Girls, you will cry… scary guys chase you with chainsaws!!! If you really want to get scared this Halloween, this is the best in the business. For a preview click here. But proceed with caution.
