50 Spooktacular Towns Across America
A chill in the air marks the last gasps of summer as Halloween slides into America’s cultural spotlight. For some, spooky season is a precursor to the holiday season, a frightening introduction to the long nights that winter brings. But for others, Halloween is a reason to celebrate.
Halloween means costumes, candy and celebrations of storytelling. It means ghost stories told over the flicker of firelight tinged by the flavor of melting s’mores.

From coast to coast and occasionally beyond, these are the best places to celebrate Halloween in each state.
