Halloween Weekend Getaways for Grown-Ups

Hallow, an inspirational travel website, just announced its list of the five best Halloween getaway ideas for 2009. Halloween is not a holiday just for trick-or-treaters; it is a much-loved holiday for adults, too (some even fall into both categories!). “Since Halloween falls on a Saturday this year, it provides consumers with the opportunity to check out the festivities in other cities with a weekend getaway," explains Barbara Messing, Vice President of


Below are's top five best places to go for Halloween weekend getaways, which are sure to put a spell on you:


1. Universal Studios Los Angeles: Located in the heart of the entertainment district overlooking the Hollywood Hills, the infamous "West Hollywood Halloween Costume Carnival," and "Halloween Horror Nights" at Universal Studios are must-see “Hollyweird” attractions.  The Six Flags "Fright Fest" at Magic Mountain, Knott's "Scary Farm" Halloween Haunt and "Dare to walk the Plank of the Queen Mary" in Long Beach are also nearby in SoCal.


2. Las Vegas: Real spine-tingling savings at the hip and trendy Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Stay for as little as $41 midweek and $71 on weekends, or snag a stay at the just-opened Paradise Tower for as little as $53. Whether you choose from one of the costumed clubs, or Haunted Vegas Tours, Sin City offers up some of the best Halloween celebrations around – whatever tickles your fancy!


3. Orlando: Universal Orlando hotel with shuttle service to parks, or the Four Points by Sheraton Orlando are both only $59/night. Enjoy family festivities at "Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party" at Disneyworld, "Shamu's Halloween Spooktacular" at SeaWorld Orlando, "Zoo Boo Bash" at Central Florida's Zoo or spooktacular fun at "Halloween Horror Nights" at Universal Studios. You can't go wrong with the lowest rates of the year!


4. Atlanta: The W Atlanta, a charmed, chic TripAdvisor in Atlanta’s trendy and action-packed neighborhood offers access to the "Little 5 Points Halloween Festival and Parade". Also visit the haunted hot spots in the metro-Atlanta area such as the Civil War era Devil's Turnaroun Cemetery.


5. Nationwide: Bite into the Big Apple and slither down to the Greenwich Village Halloween Parade, or delight in the frightful trip up to Sleepy Hallow, NY. Get your broomstick over to Boston and visit Salem, MA which is home to the witch trials of 1692 and the annual month-long "Haunted Happenings Festival" of ghost tours. Join the San Francisco haunts for Yerba Buena's Halloween Costume Walk or the spooky, kooky club celebrations.
