With Fall in full swing around the Ohio Valley “it won’t be no time” (something my grandmother used to say to me) before Halloween costumes, jack-o-lantern’s, and haunted houses fill our thoughts!
Halloween is my very favorite holiday, I’m not sure what exactly it is about this holiday that makes it my favorite, but it has been since I was very little! I also have a big confession to make, though I love Halloween I don’t enjoy Haunted Houses; there’s just something about having the crap scared outta me that isn’t very appealing. I do know however, how much some people love being chased by Freddie Kruger and Jason so I thought those of you who love that kind of thing might want to know where the best Haunted Houses in Southern Ohio and Northern Kentucky are located—you know in case you have the urge to run into the night screaming like a little girl!
