Southern New England (CT, MA & RI) Halloween Fun

Halloween GraphicAre you looking for frightening and blood curdling thrills? Is screaming your idea of a good time? Well look no further…

Fall may be a time for harvest festivals and foliage, but it is also a time for something a little darker, a little more macabre, perhaps even downright evil… In the fall, especially in October on the run up to Halloween, haunted hay rides and haunted houses spring up all over the region like those seasonal Halloween stores. Each tries to outdo the others to be more innovative, more creative, and, of course, more scary.

If you are looking for a frightening good time in southern New England (Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island) this Halloween season check out the haunted houses and hay rides that we list below:

Connecticut Haunted Graveyards, Haunted Houses, and Haunted Hay Rides

Massachusetts Haunted Graveyards, Haunted Houses, and Haunted Hay Rides
