3. Halloween Pub Crawl, Orlando, FL

Why commit yourself to one bar when you can enjoy four? The annual Halloween Pub Crawl takes you on a spirit-filled journey to several of the area’s favorite bars. Your ticket includes admission to each locale, four complimentary drinks, and ongoing drink specials throughout the event. Make sure you come dressed your best—your costume might win $500!

4. House of Make Believe, Clearwater, FL

If you plan on winning Halloween, a big box store costume simply won’t do. Make your way to the House of Make Believe, where you can find everything you need to create a stunning new version of yourself for Halloween. They also offer rentals costumes so those skeletons in your closet won’t have to compete for storage space.

5. The Old Lighthouse, St. Augustine, FL

It just isn’t Halloween without a little paranormal activity, but a trip to the St. Augustine lighthouse may give you more than you bargained for. Touted as one of the most haunted places in Florida, the lighthouse has been the site of eerie happenings, including the smell of cigar smoke when no one is smoking, or a young girl’s laughter, or the eldest daughter of Hezekiah Pity wearing the same blue dress she wore when she was last seen alive. The caretaker of the original lighthouse fell to his death here, and his ghost has been sighted numerous times. Even if you don’t put stock in ghostlore, a trip to this historical site might make a believer out of you. 

6. The Old Jail, St. Augustine, FL

If you’re too spooked to frequent the lonely lighthouse, the Old Jail tour is a tamer way to get your ghost fix. At least here there are witnesses who will hear your screams. The Old Jail dates back to just before the turn of the century, housing both men and women and some of the state’s most dangerous criminals. From the outside, it looks like a quaint little Victorian home, but don’t be fooled: this charming little blemish is certainly a paranormal hot spot you won’t soon forget.

7. Dia de los Muertos Monster Factory, Orlando, FL

Celebrating the Day of the Dead, this hauntingly beautiful event features over 150 artists showcasing their hair-raising creations. Guests can don their costumes and enjoy the block party, which includes live music, vendors, food, and plenty of prizes (and surprises). At just $5 per person, it’s the perfect way to celebrate Halloween on a budget.

8. Paranormal Investigation at Captain Sewell’s, Jensen Beach, FL

If you’ve ever wanted to walk in the shoes of a true ghost hunter, here’s your chance. This Halloween you can get rare access to Captain Sewell’s home situated inside Indian Riverside Park. Here you’ll enjoy a delicious Italian buffet dinner, complete with wine and delicious Italian cookies. But will it be your last meal? Once dinner is done, the group will explore Sewell’s home and the adjacent mangroves to conduct a real-life paranormal investigation with the experts. There’s been quite a bit of activity detected here already—what will you experience?

9. Tampa Bay Escape Room, Clearwater, FL

This live-action game may have you begging for your freedom—enter at your own risk! You’ve got your pick of three different challenges ranging from easy to difficult. You and your group must solve the clues and crack the code to escape the room before time runs out. If you the spookiest experience, opt for the Cabin in the Woods. You may never think of camping the same way again!

If you survive, there are other activities on the farm that can help you calm your nerves before you call it a night.
