Places I Want to go for Halloween: USA Edition

spooky-mulder

 

Four weeks until Australia doesn’t celebrate a cool holiday that actually has an interesting history behind it. So when I was thinking of posts for this spooky month, I realised there were so many places in the world I would love to go for October and especially Hallows’ Evening. Naturally I came up with so many that it would be impossible to list them all in one post; even my US locations were going to be a long post, so for today I picked five – all in different states – to show you today.

 

 

All these are public areas (except Greystones interior, you need a permit) so you can freely wander and take pictures if allowed. Be mindful if you do visit these places to be respectful of the residents and your surroundings – I know it’s stupid I bring it up but.. people are stupid.

A Halloween-themed month wouldn’t be complete without some city haunts, so I thought I would list some well-known, and maybe some not-so-well-known haunts around Brisbane. Whether you believe in ghosts or not, or maybe just want to learn about some creepy places around, let us highlight some places that don’t even include Boggo Road Gaol!

 

Some of these places might not be available to the public or have their own rules about entering. Remember to do additional research before you go to any of these places and always be respectful.

Let’s Talk About Adelaide

Adelaide has a problem; it’s boring. Well, it’s always touted as just that. Searching the term always brings up some fun results and even one of the major radio stations back in the day, Triple J, tried to help turn it around with an “Adelaide: It’s Okay!” campaign that was hilarious and tried very hard to help Adelaide with its boring label.

It also has that “serial killer capital” label hanging around its head that even Dexter Morgan himself, Michael C. Hall, shot a promo stating it.

A place can’t be boring and an (alleged) serial killer paradise though, can it? Only if it’s so boring that’s why people are going bananas and offing each other.

 

 

Adelaide south

Such a beautiful place to strangle someone.

 

I’ve been a few times to Adelaide and come back with different stories and experiences, and while my time there was only fleeting, I hope that if you do find yourself in The City Of Churches that my handy guide will help you around.

Take me to Paris! Take me to fill my belly with French sweets, meats, butter, maybe even some wine. Take me to see what the locals do in this iconic city. We can do some of the token, touristy things, but let’s get lost and eat to almost insanity.

I (Finally) Went to Dracula’s!

Recently, a family member had celebrated their birthday at one of the Gold Coast’s most iconic institutions, Dracula’s Cabaret Show & Dinner. The cool-looking place that I’m sure the Addams or Munsters would have loved is sandwiched in between the newly jazzed up Pacific Fair shopping centre and  The Star Gold Coast (formerly Conrad Jupiters Casino). Every local has driven past and every local has been to Dracula’s.

Except me.

I had lived here most of my life here and never once been to Dracula’s. But now I have and thought I’d let you know a bit about it!
