Ready to Scare Up Some Spirits? How to Plan an Epic Haunted Vacation

Getting Ready for Your Haunted Vacation

October is here and that means it’s the perfect time to start planning a spooky haunted vacation! If you love getting scared and are looking for a thrilling travel experience, visiting a haunted hotel, creepy castle, or ghost town should definitely be on your list. Here are some tips to help you prepare for your next haunted getaway:

Pick Your Destination

First, decide where you want to go. Some top haunted travel spots in the U.S include:

  • The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado – Famous for inspiring Stephen King’s “The Shining”
  • The Lalaurie Mansion in New Orleans, Louisiana – Known for paranormal activity and its gruesome history
  • Gettysburg, Pennsylvania – Site of the famous Civil War battle with many ghost sightings
  • Salem, Massachusetts – Infamous for its colonial witch trials

Research different locations to find one that fits your scare style, whether you prefer historic haunts, creepy mansions, or abandoned towns.

Book Your Accommodations

Make sure to reserve a room at a notoriously haunted hotel, inn, or B&B. For extra spookiness, request a known haunted room. The Stanley Hotel’s Room 217 or The Myrtles Plantation in Louisiana are prime ghost-spotting lodgings. Also, check for ghost tours or haunted packages at your chosen locale.

Get the Proper Ghost Hunting Gear

To capture evidence of spirits, bring tools like EMF meters, spirit boxes, infrared cameras, and flashlights. Make sure you have spare batteries and portable chargers. Also pack a ghost hunting kit with essentials like salt, sage, candles, and protective crystals.

Learn the Location’s History

Study up on the history, stories, and legends of your destination. Take a ghost tour, ask locals, and research online. The more you know about the ghosts said to inhabit the area, the better chance you’ll have of encountering one!

Travel With Other Paranormal Fans

See if friends or family want to join your spooky trip, or find paranormal events and meetups to join. Having other people who love ghosts along means you can share ghost stories, do group investigations, and back each other up if you discover anything supernatural.

Follow Safety Precautions

While seeking spirits, be smart and safe. Heed warning signs, watch your step in dark areas, and steer clear of locations you don’t feel comfortable exploring. Protect yourself if using provoking techniques like Ouija boards. Above all, avoid ghost hunts alone!

Get ready for a terrifying time by following these tips. Just be prepared for things to get scary if ghosts come out to play! Wherever your haunted travels take you, the memories of your thrilling ghostly encounters will stay with you long after your vacation.
