Halloween has something for everybody. The spookier it is for some families, the better. Others like to keep it on the silly side. In either case, the chill in the air, the fall colors and the glow of a campfire make it an ideal holiday for nature lovers.
Whether you hit the road in your diesel RV or celebrate in a motorhome community, Halloween is a great occasion for making memories.
A Howling Good Time in Your Own Neighborhood
Here are some fun ideas if you’re staying parked:
Plastic skeleton kits are fun and educational to assemble. You could even hide the bones for the kids to hunt down before assembly. Cook pumpkin soup or another meal in an actual carved-out pumpkin. There are lots of recipes online. Older children and teens might enjoy filming their own horror movie.
State parks around the country go all out to host ghostly events. Check park websites for information on dates and age appropriateness. Most activities are toddler-friendly. Here are some destinations that are worth exploring:
Hear a hair-raising tale during an 11-mile train ride that makes a rare nighttime descent into Cass.
What’s creepier than a cave? Point your gas RV or Class A toy hauler to Tennessee for some spine-tingling spelunking. The Lost Sea Wild Cave Tour includes a glass-bottom boat ride across the largest underground lake in the U.S.
More than 30 parks participate in the frightening festivities during September and October, and no two themes are alike. Hike haunted trails. Take harrowing hayrides. Dances, pancake breakfasts and chili cook-offs are also on the calendar.
Your memory is sure to haunt you for years to come. RVs and motorhomes from miles around head for the Haunted Barn, which is suitable for kids 10 and older.
Enjoy breathtaking fall foliage by day. Tour St. Deroin, a historic old ghost town, by night.
Get a creepy feeling at Lake Erie. Pack up the RV for bonfires, hayrides, campground trick-or-treating and much more.
Stuffy hotels and hectic airports are too scary even for Halloween. If you want to do Halloween right, do it in a Thor Motor Coach.
