Halloween Fun in Southern California

By Edited Nov 13, 2013 1 2

Southern California is home to various public places to visit for the reports of paranormal activities. I've listed eight spots to go to. The last paragraph shares general information about amusement parks in Southern California to go to for Halloween fun. I placed a link to an Info Barrel article that informs people about the exciting atmosphere they offer.

The Queen Mary is considered to be one of California's most haunted places. Since the ship was retired as a World War II transport ship, there have been many reports of paranormal activity. The ship had 49 reported deaths during its 60-years of service.

If you're planning to attend the Queen Mary Dinner and Ghost Tour, it would be prudent for everyone to wear comfortable shoes since there would be a lot of walking and climbing up a lot of stairs. Keep in mind to also dress up for dinner.

The Whaley House in Old Town San Diego was built over an old cemetery and gallows site. The house is a two-story brick structure that was built in 1856. Reports of paranormal activity include the levitating of furniture, the playing of the organ, and ghost sightings in two of the rooms.

Mission San Juan Capistrano is home of the 1812 tragedy "The Great Stone Church" that involved a massive earthquake. Paranormal activity includes seeing the face of Magdalena, a young woman who carried on a secret relationship with a young man, a haunting faceless monk, and a headless soldier.

The Stagecoach Inn, a museum in Newbury Park has three ghosts stay around the place. The docents have a lot of ghostly knowledge about the legends and dearly love to share their spooky tales.

Visit stagecoachmuseum.org for more information.

Amargosa Opera House and Hotel Mojave Desert is a few miles west of the California-Nevada border, near Death Valley National Park. Both the opera house and hotel were built to accommodate mine workers whose spirits supposedly haunt the location. The hotel has an abandoned section the staff members refer to as "spooky hollow." Lastly, it was the focus of the television show "Mind Freak."

Visit amargosa-opera-house.com for more information.

Hollywood Forever Cemetery is located near The Paramount Studios in the heart of Hollywood. There have been ghost sightings of a well-known man who isn't buried there. His name is William Randolph Hearst. The cemetery also offers a map to help you find the graves of past Hollywood stars.

The Glen Tavern Inn and restaurant is in Santa Paula, Ventura County. Many Hollywood dignitaries and stars of Hollywood have stayed at the inn. The most haunted areas of the place are rooms 222 and 224.

Visit glentavern.com for more information.

Olivas Adobe in Ventura is an 1847 hacienda that has many paranormal specialists call it one of the most haunted places in California. Television show "Sightings" did a program on the place and considered it as "well-haunted."

I would like to thank a monthly magazine called, "LifeAfter50," for publishing an article titled "The Portals of Paranormal Phenomena." That is only my source. The URL for the magazine is lifeafter50.com/.

Thanks to fellow Info Barrel member Introspective, she wrote an article titled, "Top Southern California Amusement Parks for Halloween Fun" so people would know where to go to amuse themselves during October. It does make a lot of sense for them to change their decorations when the Halloween holiday is on the calendar. Since it is possible for parents to decide against sending their children out at night to go door-to-door trick or treating at night for various reasons, luckily for them they have an alternative activity. Amusement parks are very good choices for your children to have fun on Halloween. They ensure their places are safe to go. Well, that's what I presume. Some of them are appropriate for the younger children while there would be some that geared towards older children and adults are extremely frightening.

This is a fantastic list. We live in Southern California, and I'm going to keep this list for my grandkids. We have taken some of them on the Queen Mary ghost tour, and had such a great time! People may not realize that it is available the year around!
