Halloween is right around the corner, and it’s that time of year to get in the holiday spirit! Here are some spooky places to visit to get into the holiday spirit.

A very traditional place to go is your local pumpkin patch. In Laguna Hills, Pumpkins City’s Pumpkin Patch located at the Laguna Hills Mall off of El Toro Road. It is a fun place to pick out a pumpkin. Meander through pumpkins with all shapes and sizes. There are amusement park rides, games, and a pleasant atmosphere to be in. Admission is free.

Another good place to visit is a neighborhood haunted house. A family turned their Mission Viejo home into a scary haunted house. It started as a “science experiment” gone wrong. If you go, it’s located at 24465 Chamalea Drive, Mission Viejo. It runs from 7 to 9 p.m. on Oct. 18, 19, and 25; 7 to 8 p.m. on Oct. 26; 6 to 10 p.m. on Oct. 31. Admission is free.

Knott’s Scary Farm is a great place to visit in Orange County to get into the Halloween spirit with scary nights, frights, and jump scares.

Halloween Parties are an excellent way to get into the Halloween spirit. Here is a list of places for college students and or adults to go and hang out.
