Trends / Unique Itineraries & Tours

No state terrifies visitors quite like Massachusetts. The state is known for its haunted establishments and long history of paranormal activity. Many believe this stems from the burning of witches hundreds of years ago, and that this left its mark on the state and the places where the activities took place. People from all over the world travel to Massachusetts hoping to have a ghostly encounter or come face to face with haunted items. The state is also featured in many horror and thriller films, further building the idea Massachusetts is home to many haunted places.


In Boston, many are aware of the MBTA, a network of abandoned train lines, stations and tracks. Travelers are able to wander through these creepy tunnels and see if they can find ghosts. Since the network is underground, this adds to the scary element of the experience and many claim to hear sounds of ghosts and see lights flickering. There also might be some unsavory characters lurking in the depths of the MBTA, so it’s recommended to not travel alone.


Originally named the Massachusetts State Lunatic Hospital and later the Taunton State Hospital, the complex still has one building left standing. The building was built to deal with overcrowding at the main hospital and has become a popular attraction.


Another well-visited destination is the Chester-Hudson Quarry. It’s part of the public park system, which makes it easy for visitors to explore. The quarry was mined for granite until mining abruptly stopped. Some of the machines and railroad tracks are still in place, left by the workers. It’s free to visit year-round.
