The trip will begin by heading up to Philadelphia, PA to visit the Eastern State Penitentiary that once held notorious criminals like Al Capone (aka Scarface) and “Slick Willie” Sutton. With a 142-year history full of madness, disease, suicide, murder and torture, how could there not be restless spirits left behind to roam the dark hallways?
Next, grab a broomstick as we fly to Salem, MA, where the infamous Witch Trials were held. There we will enjoy such things as the Witch Museum, the Witch Trial Memorial and take a candle-lit tour while learning the history of Salem and its hauntings.
After Salem, we travel down to Sleepy Hollow in Tarrytown, NY, home of author Washington Irving and his iconic tale The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. As night falls, visit the Old Dutch Church to watch a live performance of the story and walk through the Great Jack o’ Lantern Blaze, where over 10,000 hand-carved pumpkins will light up the night. Be on the look-out for the headless horseman.
To top off the experience, we will make a stop in Baltimore, MD on the way back to the Edgar Allan Poe House & Museum.
This will be a trip to remember, completely without the hassle of having to drive in traffic, make reservations or keeping up with the right directions, because it’s all done for you! You can sit back and relax on a fabulous charter bus and enjoy a vacation. The best part is, the trip is all family-oriented, so you can bring your kids along for the fun. For adults who want more of a scare, options will be available too. I cannot wait and hope you decide to join the best Halloween experience of the year!
