Scared of a Boring Halloween?
Halloween is a great holiday, with a multitude of ways to celebrate it. But sometimes it’s hard to know where to start looking. Don’t worry, we’ve found a bunch of neat things around the Milwaukee area to keep you from (un)dying of boredom.
Here are some of the best Halloween 2019 activities near Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Milwaukee has some actually haunted places to visit for those that count themselves as supernatural enthusiasts. You could visit the Pfister Hotel, the Hilton Garden Inn, or the Pabst Mansion. Perhaps you might meet the long-deceased curator said to still be prowling around the Milwaukee Public Museum. There might just be some spectral concertgoers at the Rave. If you prefer to hunt your ghosts outdoors, then the Seven Bridges Trail is a surefire way to get spooked. If going by yourself is a bit too scary, then check out Chad Lewis’s tour of Wisconsin Most Haunted Places on October 15th.
Milwaukee’s Haunted Houses
If you prefer not to have to rely on the whims of ghosts for your scares, then the Milwaukee area has plenty of haunted houses to visit, like the Abandoned Haunted House Complex in Mount Pleasant, the Wisconsin Fear Grounds in Waukesha, or—again, for those who prefer those spooks outside—there’s the Spooky Stalks Haunted Cornfield right here in Milwaukee.
Halloween 2019 Events in Milwaukee
When you’ve had your share of spooks, then satisfy your inner sleuth at the Mystery at Milwaukee Public Museum event on October 11th.
