Some of the best aspects of Halloween include showing off your creativity through the goriest home decor, gawking at the spooky looks dropped by celebs, and, of course, going on fun-filled vacations with family and friends.
However, things can get a little tricky while planning a Halloween gateway in contrast to preparing for other vacations around the year. There are plenty of things a Halloween vacation should incorporate, ranging from costume parties to spooky yet picturesque locations to clicking exotic food pictures -- all for the sake of Instagram. With that in mind, below are the names of some spooky destinations where Halloween is celebrated with extreme pomp and grandeur every year. To make the holiday an unforgettable one, visiting one of these places is highly recommended.
Bran Castle, Romania:
Located in the Romanian region of Transylvania, the castle is popular for giving birth to the legend of Count Dracula, the antagonist in Bram Stoker’s renowned novel "Dracula."

However, you can have great fun here during Halloween, wearing fascinating costumes, drinking locally made alcohol, and taking part in the festivities.
