It's finally that spooky season!  The leaves are rapidly turning and the chill that blows in drops lower each day.  What's a better way to warm up than to get that blood pumping?  During the whole month of October, in addition to all of the fall festivals and fairs, there are a variety of options for people looking to get spooked! Here is a list of locations in both Nassau and Suffolk County that are suddenly haunted in the spirit of Halloween... Keep in mind that some of these may not be the best for the younger children, so if you are concerned please refer to our post on Fall Festivities and Fun or our Fall Family Fun Trip Idea instead.
