Our personal favorite because it’s right outside our door is the annual Zombie Walk through Carytown. You can either get your zombie on and dress as your scariest zombie to join the walk, or grab a seat in a local restaurant or bar to watch from the sidelines! Here is the link to get the details! http://richmondzombiewalk.com
If you want to get outside for a little exercise, join in on the Haunts of Richmond walking tour. With your group (there is safety in numbers) you’ll visit some of the most haunted spots in town! Click here for more info! http://www.hauntsofrichmond.com/tours.htm
If you want to get a bit out of town, visit the Haunted Hill in Spotsylvania for a terrifying night of fun! Take the hayride into the deep dark woods where you’ll be dropped off to make your way through the forest inhabited by every variety of creepy crawler and ghoul!

For a more interactive haunting, visit the real escape room where you will be locked in a room with a real (well, almost) zombie. Your team’s job is to escape from the room – if the zombie touches you, you’ll be infected – and many, many other frightening outcomes – will you be able to get out? This is available for teams or larger group, in various locations!
For families or smaller children, try these less terrifying options:
Visit the apple orchard and take a hayride into the field – listen to country music, and spend the day outside enjoying the call weather at Carter Mountain Orchard!
Come back in time with the little ones and spend the afternoon at “Things that Go Bump in the Afternoon” (there are other options for older children and teens). Wear your costume and bring some friends to hear stories about how the these brave settlers left Jamestown to make a new home!
Need a pumpkin? Want to take a hayride where you AREN’T chased by zombies? Want to have fresh made donuts and visit the holiday shops? Your spot may be the Ashland Berry Farm – during the DAY!
