The Best Halloween Travel Destinations In 2024

Are you looking for a perfect time this Halloween? Prepare for some scary trips to the best Halloween destinations where vampires, witches and zombies join the party.

As the days get shorter and colder, the spooky fog begins to creep into the cities. Then, on October 31, the doors to the underworld are opened, and for one night, the dead and the living inhabit the same world. This year, prepare for some exciting and scary trips to the best Halloween destinations where vampires, witches and zombies join the party.

Halloween travel destinations


Meet the all-star vampire Dracula himself! Rent a car in the country's capital, Bucharest, and drive up to Bran Castle, famous as the residence of Vlad the Impaler, on whom the Dracula legend is based. Although it is a terrifying structure, no objective evidence has ever been found that Vlad the Impaler lived there. So don't hesitate to venture further into the dark forests of Transylvania and visit the abandoned fortress Poenari Castle, which Vlad built.

For an incredibly creepy experience, rent a vehicle to drive to Hunyad Castle, where the cruel Impaler was imprisoned and where it is believed he began his insane tortures.

Halloween in Romania


Día de Los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is celebrated throughout Latin America but reaches its most incredible span in Mexico. The streets fill with countless skeletons, well-dressed skulls, fires, flowers, and sweets. Although the whole procession may seem like a series of creatures straight from hell, Mexicans believe that the dead would be offended by the grief of the living. Therefore, the celebration is good-humoured and full of music, laughter, food and drink. It is, therefore, best to leave your rental car in the garage and join the hustle and bustle of the parade.

If you want a cosmopolitan experience:

  1. Immerse yourself in the most diverse city in Europe - London.
  2. Choose one of the countless spooky midnight tours that will take you back to mediaeval London, when the city's cobbled streets were dark, mysterious and dangerous.
  3. Join the Mardi Gras party at one of London's renowned clubs or local pubs.
  4. Take some time to rent a car and visit Edinburgh's secret underground tunnels, "Mary King's Close,".

Or the mysterious Hellfire Caves and tunnels let your imagination run wild.


Ireland is the land where Halloween celebrations began around a thousand years ago. Initially, a Celtic tradition of Samhain, signifying the end of summer, spread worldwide with the Irish migration and is now known as Halloween. Numerous local practices are, therefore, still celebrated across the country, along with the modern version of the holiday. So don't miss a visit to St. Michan's Church with its mummified corpses, or rent a car to explore Ireland's many haunted castles, ruins and abandoned mental hospitals.

The United States 

As the leading exporter of modern Halloween, the United States is the centre of the October 31 festivities. Whether you choose to party spectacularly at New York Times Square or spend the night in the cemetery at Sleepy Hollow, you're guaranteed an unforgettable experience. Some of the best destinations we suggest are Salem, Massachusetts, the spooky swamps of New Orleans or Knott's Scary Farm in California. So rent a car and embark on an exciting drive. The options are countless. The choice is yours. With so many options, everyone can find what they want and need. Different countries offer a variety of traditions and venues, from mysterious and spooky ruins to expensive and classy parties.
