the best places in the world to celebrate Halloween

Halloween is one of the best holidays of the year, and it’s also becoming more popular as a time to take a mini-vacation. But where to go? The perfect destination would have some historic or thematic tie to the holiday, and a luxurious hotel to stay in, and at least one fantastic party, or parade, or assorted bacchanalia. Fog, ghosts and really good candy are preferred, but not required. If money is no object, and you can get away for a few days, here’s our list of the top 10 destinations in the world to celebrate a glamorous, mysterious, adrenaline-fueled Halloween.

Here are over a dozen art museum exhibits opening soon that we would love to see in the fall of 2018 — if time and our travel budget would permit it, we’d visit all of these before the end of November and the beginning of the holiday crush. At least we can dream. How about you? What’s on your list?
