Halloween Activity Ideas for 2023

As the air embraces a subtle crisp chill and leaves begin to fall with the dawn of Halloween time, there are a number of activities that will let you take advantage of the thrill of the season.  Whether you're looking for something to do on your own, with friends, as a couple, or as a family, you will definitely find something right up your alley on our list of the 

Best Halloween Activities for Families, Couples, or Friends for 2023

Visit a Haunted Hotel

For those that really crave a spook beyond the ordinary, you can completely immerse yourself in titillating terror by visiting one of North America's many hotel that are rumoured to actually contain unsettled spirits!  An example is the Richardson Hotel in Buffalo; this was originally built as a mental asylum in the 1800s and is said to have eventually hosted thousands of patients - many of which were tortured and landed up deceased within its majestic walls.  The building is a feat of architectural genius and it is shaped like a bat! This is just one example of an excellent and harrowing hotel experience for your Halloween scare.

Binge-Watch the Horror Classics

If you're a teen or adult, we would recommend getting in the Halloween mood with such impeccable thrillers as the Freddy series, Chucky series, (the first five, only), and Texas Chainsaw Massacre series, as our top three.  

If you're looking for something kids will enjoy without getting nightmares, we recommend the Goosebumps series, which includes a number of entertaining monster and plot twists that are more charming than terrifying.

Custom Halloween Costume Creations

With the month leading up to Halloween, you will have more than one chance to enjoy dressing up, and why let the joy of dress-up be restricted to the day you dress up?  Old-fashioned home-made costumes are a great way to stretch out the enjoyment of cosplay.  Choose the perfect shoes, accessories, shirt, and makeup without getting the cookie cutter set at stores.  This will give you more time to enjoy your costume and you will be the only one with your custom look when the big dress-up day comes around!
