Recently, we let you in on some fun fall festivals in northern Georgia – but there's one celebration that outspooks them all. You could say that the other festivals never had a frighting chance. Don't sit around wondering what there is to do in Atlanta this Night of the Day of the Dead. Let the Gopher dig up some monsters for you. Vampires aren't the only creatures that do their best work with a pair of teeth, you know. This year, when the Great Pumpkin comes to The A, be prepared to be scared with this superlist of the best Halloween haunts.

 

City Scares

Capturing the Spirit of Oakland Halloween Tour: Bring a flashlight and nerves of steel for this nighttime tour of historic Oakland Cemetery, where your tour guides will be the ghosts of Atlanta who still wander the night. Tours run October 18 thru October 27, and tickets are only $20.

 

Boos and Brews Halloween Party: Music, beer pong and a costume contest for trick-or-treaters who are 21 and over. Friday, October 25 only. Tickets are $15 advance, $20 after October 17 and $25 the day of event.

 

 

Suburban Supernaturals

Walking Ghost Tour: Get in the spirit with an up-close and personal look at the scariest sites in Marietta with a talented and spooky storyteller. The tour lasts about 90 minutes and covers just under a mile. Tickets are $17 for adults; $12 for children 12 and under.

 

Haunted Trolley Tour: Ride in comfort (and terror) on a historic trolley through “Scary-etta” accompanied by ghost stories. Tickets are $27 for adults; $14 for children 12 and under.

 

Lawrenceville Ghost Tours: The oldest town in greater Atlanta has had plenty of time to gather up a fine collection of specters. See what all the renewal and development has turned up this weekend. Tickets cost: $12 for adults; $9 for kids.

 

Roswell Ghost Tour: Plenty of towns have ghost tours, but how many are so scary that you have to sign a waiver? This is not a storytelling event. Spend 2.5 hours chasing real ghosts with real ghost busters (aka paranormal investigators). Tickets cost $15 for adults, and $10 for kids 10 and under.

 

Halloween Hikes at Chattahoochee Nature Center: Who said Halloween had to be scary? Here's a great non-frightening alternative to meet the real creatures of the night on a moonlit nature hike. After the hike, enjoy costumed characters and face painting. Tickets are $9 all ages, and admission is free for kids 2 and under.
