Which Two Michigan Cities Are Spookier Than All The Rest?
Halloween is coming and so are the decorations, haunted houses, and costumes. What two Michigan cities are spookier than all the rest?
Tis' the Season for Halloween
On my way to and from work, I've already started seeing people's homes being decorated in Halloween themes. I've been hearing about corn mazes and soon the haunted houses should start opening up.
It will be sooner than you think before the kids are on your doorstep with the words "Trick or Treat."
All that being said, where are the spookiest towns located in Michigan?
Spookiest Towns in Michigan
At first, I thought Hell or Bad Axe, Michigan, would be at the top of the list of spooky towns for the Mitten state but those two did not make the list.
It turns out that Greenfield Village in Dearborn is one of the spookiest towns to visit in Michigan. MLive reported that Hallowe'en at Greenfield Village has over 1000 jack-o'-lanterns that are lit up.
The Greenfield Village event has been going on for over 40 years. The decorations are said to be one of the best in the country not to mention the costumed storybook characters and ghostly performances. Don't be surprised if the headless horseman doesn't pay you an unexpected visit while taking a ride through the village on the Halloween Express.
The other scary destination to visit is located in Romeo where there is a street called Tillson Street where every homeowner decorates their house and yards with spooktacular setups that draw people to visit the street much like some towns do during Christmas where a whole neighborhood will do big giant holiday decorations.
The event is called Terror on Tillson Street and has been going on for 30 years and seems to get bigger and bigger each year. Many of the homes in the neighborhood were built back in the 1800s which just adds to the spookiness.
Parking is free on the streets that are close to Tillson. A good time to visit is just as it's getting dark to see the displays just before the lights go on and then of course when it's the spookiest of all when it's dark. October is the month to visit and looks like my son and I will be making a road trip.
