While visiting the Orlando area be sure to see SeaWorld's Spooktacular Event, including trick-or-treat stations, costumed characters, and the live musical stage show Countdown to Halloween.  For the older crowd in your group, children over 13, Universal's Halloween Horror Night is a favorite.

New Orleans Halloween Excitement!  A great place that is fun for adults as well as kids.  There are some great family-friendly Halloween events throughout the city.  Boo at the Zoo is the annual Halloween extravaganza at the Audubon Zoo for kids up to age 12.  You will find a ghost train, music, games, a haunted house and trick or treating. Tickets and details can be found on the Audubon Zoo website.  The Louisiana Children's Museum, in the early afternoon, hosts "Spooky Saturday".  This is a Halloween arts and crafts session where the kids will make some cool and maybe gooey items. In the early evening is the Museum Mash which is a Halloween dance party and trick or treating throughout the museum.  There is also Crawloween at the Insectarium where kids can trick-or-treat and make crafts while learning about some creepy critters.  Boo Carre is an all day long Halloween festival throughout the French Market district of the French Quarter.  You will find trick or treating for kids in costumes, live music, Halloween-themed food, pumpkin patches, pumpkin carving demos, costumed characters and at dusk a Pumpkin Procession to Jackson Square for the lighting of the pumpkins.   The Ghostly Gallivant is a tour of the French Quarter where your ghostly tour guide will enlighten you about the French Quarter's spooky past.  Fun for all ages is the traditional Halloween parade complete with floats, marching bands, dance teams, beads, and Halloween candy.

Haunted Happenings in Salem, Massachusetts!  Throughout the month of October each year Salem has an awesome city wide Halloween Festival. You can get spooked on a walking tour or in a haunted house. Enjoy the Salem Witch Museum or join Bridget Bishop as she is accused of witchcraft in the streets and is moved to Old Town Hall for her trial. Kids will love the pumpkin carving, crafts, fireworks and music.  Trick or treating, costume contests and parades will add to the fun.  The more adventurous can take a Haunted Harbor Cruise for an hour and a half cruise with spooky stories about haunted lighthouses, pirates, and more.

Spooky October in Chicago!  This Windy City is filled with festivities for the young and old throughout the month of October.  You will find parades, haunted houses, mazes, pumpkin carving, fun runs, and classic horror movies.  Chicago's Lincoln Park Zoo Spectacular offers trick-or-treating, a parade, decorations and entertainment for the entire family.  At the Brookfield Zoo you will find a haunted carousel, corn maze, parade and pumpkin carving by day. After 6:00 the "Creatures of the Night" opens with underground tours, a haunted tram and classic horror movies.  The Chicago Botanic Garden gets into the fun with their HallowFest which includes face painting, ghost trains, a spooky bat cave, Halloween snacks and a Spooky Pooch Parade for dogs.  For the really daring souls you can take a haunted Segway tour to visit some of Chicago's well known haunted locations.

The event requires a special admission ticket but there are daytime/nighttime combo tickets available.  Note that this event is intended for mature audiences and it is not recommended for children under the age of 13.  This is a very popular event so consider preordering discounted tickets online.  The downside to this event is that on a busy night the wait can up 60 - 75 minutes.  However they do offer a VIP pass or Front of the Line Pass for additional money. 

Halloween Fun at Busch Gardens!  In September and October the park hosts a Halloween Event known as the Howl-O-Scream festival.  It features shows, wandering scare actors,  and haunted houses.   This event requires a special admission ticket and is not recommended for young children.  The park is open during the day with some fun, family oriented Halloween treats for the younger children but get them out of there by 5:30 pm to be safe.
