A Halloween Tour Through New England

If you’re planning a trip through this beautiful region during the month of October, here is a gallery of photos from the New England sites you cannot miss!

Best Halloween Ever! I just returned from a five day trip with my husband through Massachusetts and New Hampshire. We visited all the sites any Halloween or horror hound could dream of seeing. If you’re planning a trip to this beautiful region, you should consider adding these New England sites to your itinerary.
Our first stop was Salem, Massachusetts. Thousands of curious tourists descend upon this little town every October. Known for its infamous witch trials of 1692, Salem has scads of attractions for those who love horror and history. See my photos below from The House of Seven Gables tour, Old Burying Point, Count Orlok’s Nightmare Gallery, and more.

Haunted Overload on Demeritt Hill Farm in Lee, New Hampshire, is hands-down the best haunted attraction I have ever toured. Giant skulls and other monsters loomed high in the air above us as we made our way through the hour-long trip. Terrifying creatures and dilapidated structures met us at every turn, along with a headless horseman!

After a drive through the stunning fall foliage in the hills of New Hampshire, we arrived in Laconia for their annual Pumpkin Festival. We walked through the pumpkin-laden streets of the little town, sipping on hot cider and taking oodles of photos of carved jack-o-lanterns that greeted us.

Next, it was south to Fall River, Massachusetts to the Lizzie Borden Bed & Breakfast Museum. There we were led by a knowledgeable, friendly guide through the site of one of the most well-known unsolved mysteries in American History.

Finally, we stopped in Plymouth, Massachusetts for a late afternoon stroll through the picturesque Burial Hill Cemetery in the center of town.

Enjoy my photos of all these sites below.

Harriet Tubman is one of America’s most beloved historical figures but has sadly been largely relegated to just a few facts during Black History Month. This incredible ex-slave, spy, cook, nurse, public speaker and rescuer deserves a story worthy of her stature.

“Minty” – tentatively titled after Tubman’s nickname – is a “reimagining” of Harriet Tubman as an action hero. It is a period piece with a modern flare.
