    Go to Liberty Ridge Farm

    If you've never been to Liberty Ridge to get your spook on, this is the year to go. It's super fun, and just scary enough. There are tractor rides, animals, food & drinks, and plenty of haunted things- from corn fields, to forts, to woods and houses. There's also a warm fire pit, a sandbox filled with corn (sounds weird but don't knock it 'til you sit in it), and a fun slide!

    Go on a Haunted Stockade Tour

    The Stockade is arguably the most haunted place in the Capital Region, which makes it the perfect location for a haunted tour. Some of the buildings there date back to the 1700s! Anything that's been around that long has to be haunted, right? The Stockade is so rich with history- it's bound to be a staple on your fall bucket list!

    Go on a Haunted Pub Crawl

    Whoever came up with this idea is a genius. The crawl starts with a tour of the haunted Ten Broeck Mansion in Albany. The tour guide will then lead you to downtown Albany, specifically McGeary's and The Hollow. Your guide will tell you Albany's spookiest tales all along the way, then the party continues at the bar. Count us in!

    Experience the Capitol Haunting Tour

    The Capitol is totally haunted. We want to get spooked there! If you dare go to the Capitol this fall, you might even have yourself a run-in with notable spirits who linger there, like an artist or a janitor. Are you up for it?

    Take a Trip to Howe Caverns

    What's creepier than a dark, damp, dreary cave? Nothin'- that's why Howe Caverns is on our fall bucket list. Around Halloween, Howe Caverns gives haunted candlelight tours of the grounds. The tour guides may even be in old-time-y garb to really set the mood. This sounds super fun and definitely spooky!
