4 Ghost Tours That Give You a Terrifying Glimpse Of Wisconsin’s Dark Side
Wisconsin has many haunted stories and places to share, but if you really want to dive into the state's creepy side, go on one of its most popular ghost tours.
'Tis the Season for Scary
The calendar might not say it's officially Fall yet, but Labor Day weekend has come and gone, so many minds are now preoccupied with thoughts of pumpkins, costumes, and ghosts.
One of my favorite things about fall is Halloween. I love decorating my home up in its spooky best, and I love dressing up in costumes. The only thing I don't get into each Halloween is the super gorey and scary stuff, simply because I am a huge wimp.
Scary movies always give me nightmares and creepy creatures jumping out at me in haunted houses is definitely not something I love, yet I am completely fascinated by hearing 'real life' haunted stories.
