People dancing in costumes at a Halloween party near Vistara at San Tan Village



Halloween is more of the social event of the year. Be it a bunch of kids dressing up and going trick or treating or adults getting in a spooky spirit and going out to a party. And while we are still in the midst of a global pandemic, here are three annual Halloween celebration destinations you can visit in the future all around the world.

Halloween with Dracula in Transylvania

Vampires and Transylvania go together like vampires and Transylvania. That’s not a typo. And Romania has cashed in on the hype. All day tours of Transylvania will culminate with a visit to Bran’s Castle, home of the legendary Vlad the Impaler, the inspiration from Bram Stoker's Dracula. And on Halloween night you can party inside the castle itself! Just be sure to eat some garlic bread first.

New Orleans

Not to be outdone, America has its own city synonymous with vampires and all manner supernatural goings on: we’re talking about the city of New Orleans. The Big Easy has been the inspiration for a number of famous supernatural fiction authors, from Anne Rice to Neil Gaiman. And while Covid has impacted the Halloween party scene, there’s still plenty of tours and events to choose from, but if you’re still on the fence, there’s always next year. Regardless of when you decide to celebrate Halloween in New Orleans the abundance of cemeteries, white marble vaults, and massive mausoleums will be there to help bring some extra scare to your visit.

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party

For the kid in all of us there’s Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. While there are other theme parks, and those parks do have Halloween parties, come on, this is Disney we’re talking about here. Live action versions of your favorite characters will be milling about the park. You can even cut a rug with your favorite Disney characters at the Scream-o-Ween dance before watching Disney World‘s fireworks show. Unfortunately, due to Covid, this year's festivities have been canceled. But all that means is you have plenty of time to plan out the perfect Halloween party destination trip for next year’s festivities.
