Halloween season is upon us again and everyone is geared up to slip into spooky costumes, indulge in some Trick or Treat candies, and role-plays. Essentially, the night of Oct. 31 is always a good excuse to try something new, including a new holiday destination. 

Every year, Halloween brings about visuals of garden lawns bedecked with jack-o'-lanterns, ghosts and goblins, cobwebs, and all things spooky. While many people take part in overnight parties with great enthusiasm, some seek to visit haunted places around the country to make the fall vacation all the more memorable. 

For those who refuse to limit themselves to only exploring their neighborhood to bring the Halloween spirit alive, renting out a haunted house and spending a night there with family is a great idea, as well as the safest way to celebrate Halloween this year amid the nationwide social distancing policies. 

If you are one of those horror-buffs looking out for goosebump-inspiring haunted cabins in the woods, here are some recommendations:
