Gumdrops & Lollipops, Niantic, CT

Jack-O-Lantern Walk, Mystic Seaport, CT

The Mystic Seaport is holding their annual spooky tour along with a frightful amount of over 100 lit Jack-O-Lanterns! Generally running over the course of a few weeks, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to take a thrilling tour of the Mystic Seaport as you’ve never seen it before along with lawn games, live music and crafts!

Sophia’s, Greenwich, CT

Before heading to any Halloween bash or tour, of course you’ll need to look your best. Stand out from the frightening crowd with a unique costume purchased or rented from Sophia’s. This costume store offers both vintage and new costumes for the whole family—including your dog. Here, you’ll find options from the ancient times until today as well as costumes from popular shows, movies, and comics.

Holy Land USA, Waterbury, CT

Nothing is quite as haunting as Holy Land USA in Waterbury. This 18-acre, former religious theme park now stands in ruins. The park, which is a miniature model of catacombs and Israelite villages, was created by John Baptist Greco in 1955. An array of recreations depicting the ministry of Jesus scatter the land. The park closed to the public in 1984, but reopened in 2014. Access is only allowed during the day. At night, from the town of Waterbury below, you can see an enormous cross standing tall atop the hill, illuminating the dark sky.
