My fiance and I have decided on several different times of year and places to go for our honeymoon. (Two year engagements will do that to you.)
We are getting married in Oct. 2015, and our original plan was a road trip to Savannah, Georgia the spring after our wedding. We live in Central IL.
But I am an absolute Halloween fanatic and have ALWAYS wanted to see the East Coast in the fall, so now that is on the table. We would be going over Halloween.
Anyone know of any great places to be on Halloween, or in the fall in general, on the East Coast? We are more quaint, small town, pumpkin picking, scenery-gazing type people as opposed to big cities, partying, or tropical beach-goers.
Thank you for your help! 🙂

You can’t beat Salem, MA for Halloween! My FI’s family lives in the next town over, and my family lives about an hour away, but I’ve never been at Halloween because it gets INTENSE, so you would definitely want to plan ahead. The town gets loaded with tourists in October… but it’s a GORGEOUS little town, and there’s so many other awesome places in Massachusetts/Rhode Island/New Hampshire at that time of the year. Lots of people travel through the Berkshires and Western Massachusetts during that time of the year to look at the foliage and such. And you could also take a spin down to Newport, RI to go on tours of the mansions.

I’m an October 2015 bride too! Yayyyy!
The Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia is supposed to be FABULOUS during their “Terror Behind the Walls” series. South Jersey also has a bunch of corn mazes and smaller haunted walk attractions.
Salem, MA sounds like it’d be a lot of fun too!

I live in NYC, and it is AWESOME here during halloween. There’s the huge parade, plus tons of special events. The costumes are incredible since we have so many real deal fashion and theatre people here. Definitely a once in a lifetime. Also, New Orleans is fun during Halloween (and it woudl be wayyyyy less expensive).

aquarius_91: I am from West Virginia and there are some excellent Halloween activites there! It’s not exactly on the east coast, but it’s still a blast. Check out the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum’s (located in Weston, WV) ghost tours. You’ll also be close enough to Rich’s Fright Farm in Pennsylvania (a couple hours’ drive) which is a huge haunted house/haunted corn maze/ haunted hayride.

You could totally do Boston/New England. It is GORGOUS here that time of year (hello Vermont leaf peepers) and you could do Halloween in Salem!
