    One of the greatest joys of the fall season is having an entire month to embrace all things spooky. October is for cider, changing leaves and getting closer to the "other side." 

     

    Philadelphia's historical past makes it the perfect place for the supernatural and we have the haunted attractions to prove it! This list is for the haunts and the brave humans who love them. We've got your ultimate guide to haunted houses, late-night ghost tours and spooky hayrides galore! 

     

    If you just so happen to see a ghost this Hallo-season, send us a picture on TwitterFacebook and Instagram @Phillyfunguide! 

     

    Happy Haunting!
