Get in the "spirit." 👻

Whether it's an abandoned shack, a haunted hotel or a spirit-infested slice of the great outdoors, America's most haunted destinations make for excellent -- albeit excellently spooky -- Halloween weekenders.

They're located all over this ghoulishly great nation, so no matter where you are, don't fret: The spirits are near enough to visit.
