    Favorite "Haunted" place?

    This could be fun. Is there any supposently haunted places in the US that you've visited or would like to go?

    How about ghost tours? Ever been on one?

    This sounds interesting. I'm guessing you'd find a lot of supposedly haunted places but the tour idea is great... however seeing as I don't really believe in the supernatural it would most likely be a day of watching creepy looking old buildings.

    Perhaps some entrepreneur should invest in a haunted house and turn it into a neat "Bed & Breakfast". I think it would do okay especially if there was an enticing write-up about the haunting history... Personally I would call it "Bed & Breakfast Plus... GHOSTS!" and my tagline would be. "Note to visitors: We can guarantee your privacy in this realm only." Wouldn't that be the neatest weekend getaway?

    There are many supposed haunted places in NJ, enough that there is actually a book about it. I am not sure that I really believe in all of it personally, but used to try to visit and do what they say you had to do to "see the ghost."

    There is a road called Shades of Death Road in NJ, seriously it is the name of the road. The road sign used to get stolen so often that more times then not there was a wooden piece for the street sign. I think now the street sign just says Shades Road, but it is really still called Shades of Death Road. There was a story for that one, but I cannot remember it all. We did try it and nothing creeped us out, but many people swear that the story is true.

    I would love to go to Lizzie Bordon's house. They made it into a Bed and Breakfast.

    Amityville Horror house on Long Island, there was a movie made about it. It was even said that during the filming of the original movie weird things happened on the set.

    I'm not sure if I believe in it either, but it sure is fun to read about!

    In Maine there are supposently haunted lighthouses and cemeteries and funny enough, as was mentioned earlier, bed and breakfasts.

    The most famous is probobly Jonathan Bucks grave. He was supposently cursed by a witch, and when he died a witch's foot appeared on his gravestone. They tried replacing it, but the foot came back.

    Gettysburg is full of supposedly haunted buildings, battlefields, and graveyards. I visited one time and wasn't looking to be haunted, but that's all I heard about in each tour that I took. Almost every building has pictures hung up inside of pictures of ghosts that were taken, and most of the ghosts appear as orbs of light in the picture. Nighttime gets even spookier and thrilling for the ghost hunter, as ghost tours continue through both the houses and downtown. There was one wax museum that particularly gave me the creeps, as it really seemed like the wax figurines were looking at me. I'm not sure how I feel about ghosts being real, but I know people who say they saw them or heard them in Gettysburg, and with all the soldiers that were killed in battle there, I just might believe it.

    I don't believe in ghosts but would like to ascertain the truth about the existence of ghosts if I can. I've heard of Normandy and read a little about ghostly screams and so on, but I don't know if this occurs only to people who are highly sensitive.

    If I were to try a haunted place, Normandy would be the first place to test out the veracity of theory that ghosts do exist.

    Re: Favorite "Haunted" place?

    I think the Alcatraz National Park is one of my favorite haunted places, but to be honest this isn't one of the easiest questions I've had to answer! There are so many haunted places in USA that I'd really love to visit I'm a big fan of the paranormal, so I'd really love to have enough cash and time to visit most of the haunted places in the US. It seems the most haunted places in the US are either prisons or abandoned Psychiatric hospitals

    Re: Favorite "Haunted" place?

    I've been on one in Cincinnati where I live, it's at a bar called Bobby Mackey's, I think it's been featured on one of those ghost-hunting shows. I thought it was completely a rip-off and a waste of time. We basically walked around a dank basement, while they threw beer bottles down a chute from the bar above and claimed it was ghosts doing it... I wasn't impressed. I'm pretty skeptical about such things, I tend to think the whole genre is based on rip-offs, but I don't have a whole lot of experience to be fair. Sorry to be a downer, if that's what you're into though, to each his own!

    I've never been too impressed with Gettysburg from that standpoint...just never felt drawn to it. Devil's den does harbor a very sad energy, but if you know the history it isn't too surprising.

    I really want to go to Pennhurst Asylum, I've heard so much about it.

    I agree that the Lizzie Borden house would be pretty cool to check out!

    We visited Tombstone a few years back. However it was during the day time so there wouldn't have been much on film anyway I suppose.

    Not haunted, but creepy nonetheless: Centralia, PA. It's a (mostly) abandoned town that used to be a coal-mining town. Basically, the old coal mine caught fire underground, and has been burning for many years. Now, there's smoke rising out of cracks in the ground, and an abandoned highway with creepy graffiti and smoke plumes coming up from cracks in the road. It's fun to explore, and apparently inspired the setting for the Silent Hill movie.

    If you are interested in Civil War era ghosts, in my opinion, Shiloh is WAY creepier than Gettysburg. I saw Shiloh early in the morning, and there was fog everywhere, it happens sometimes in the fall in the South...and it creeped me out. You could feel the energy there...the people who died. Sad, and scary.

    I've heard that same advice before actually! A friend told me it's quite creepy there. I'll have to add it to my haunt list =).

    Oh, really? Some of the coal mining stuff is quite creepy. Abandoned anything under tragic circumstances could have that tendency, I guess.

    I have been to many Civil War battlefields, this one is by far the creepiest. Plus it's close to Memphis, so you can always stop and see Elvis' ghost at Graceland.

    I love to enjoy hunting at San Jose, California. I had a great hunting experience in Silicon Valley in San Jose with my elder brother and some friends. We enjoy camping and hunting. It is one my my favorite experience till yet as an adventure lover.

    I have a good experience of The Fairmont Banff Springs because I have been there about few years ago with my whole family. We stay there for few days and spent great time there. I would love to go there again and again. So can you share your experience if you ever visit there.

    I have never visited Fairmont Banff Springs in my whole life. But my sister visited this with his college friends. All of them spent nice time there and enjoy lots. I will try to visit this place in the next year. I am sure I also spent nice time there which you had.
