The 10 Coolest Places to Celebrate Halloween


6. Sleepy Hollow, New York, USA

The famous grounds of Washington Irving’s timeless legend of the Headless Horseman are the perfect place to get spooky this year. Halloween can be discovered here throughout the entire month of October. The 300 year old Phillipsburg Manor is one of the most favorite of Halloween events as it is transformed into a fearsome landscape that features vampires, witches, ghosts and state-of-the-art special effects. For a more family friendly tour head to the Lyndhurst Castle where a guide will take you to meet the spirits of the Mummy, Frankenstein’s Monster and the Phantom of the Opera. Other activities in this town include haunted hayrides, live music, street fairs, parades and lantern tours. Don’t miss out on visiting Old Dutch Burying Ground, one of the oldest cemeteries in the United States and of course the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery where Washington Irving is buried.
