31 Places Around the World to Go for Halloween: Real and Creepy

Julie Blakley on BootsnAllTravel has a great article on 31 Places to Go for Halloween. These are really spooky places all over the world. I'm a big cemetery go-er, so I'm glad to be able to add these places to my 'must-see' list. It would be great to go on Halloween, as you'll read, but you can 'enjoy' these places all year round!
