Halloween Ghostly Travel
The Creepiest Destinations

Ghostly travel destinationsHalloween is the time of year when streets of every town and village fill with ghostly figures knocking on doors and asking for treats.

But if you are one of the millions who are interested in otherworldly apparitions, Halloween make-believe is no substitute for the real thing!

So where are the places that let you experience the supernatural all year long?

Around the Web, click over to the Travel Channel's Top Ten Most Haunted Places featuring their top picks for creepy locations from coast to coast in the USA, and tells you the why and how in words, pictures and spooky video clips.

Next stop? Merry ol' England -- where ghosts have made regular appearances at Haunted Places in the UK for centuries in the most likely (and unlikely) of places. Former lunatic asylums, historic castles, and even railway stations and libraries have their own stories. Plus, there's a neat interface where you can enter a location in England, Scotland, Wales or Ireland to find a ghost of your very own near you!

Heading off to the rest of Europe on vacation? You might want to bookmark Our Favorite Haunted Castles in Europe to find out how to get to Bran Castle in Romania (the inspiration for Dracula). Or, learn more about the aptly named "Witches Castle" in Austria where thousands of witch trials and executions took place in the 12th century.

Last but not least, you may want to fasten your seat belt for a worldwide tour of ghosts and goblins at 21 Most Haunted Places in the World. Here, creepy stories of ghostly apparitions and evil cackling, and moans and groans are told about infamous places in locations around the planet -- as far-flung as Indonesia to the mysterious "Doll Island" of Mexico.

Of course, today through the magic of the Internet you don't necessarily have to travel miles. Just sit back and watch for the up-to-the-minute terror (apparitions permitting) on live ghost webcams.

Have fun! If you dare...
