Oh my goodness, if you live anywhere near Leominster and you haven’t visited the haunted house at 190 North Street, you are crazy. A local family has done up their huge back yard into a haunted “house” every year for 10 years…it’s amazing! And it’s actually free…at they end they collect for MDA and/or the Red Cross, but that’s all up to you.
Directions: Drive North on Route 13 toward Lunenburg. At the Kings Corner lights (where the CVS is on the right and the Weathervane is on the left) take a right onto North Street. The haunted yard is about 8 houses down on the right…don’t worry, you won’t miss it.
I’m sure Witches Woods out at Nashoba Valley Ski Area is great, but it’s $22 for an adult and might be a little too scary for the younger ones. This is scary but not too scary. And technically, it’s free. So go. I recommend it.
