Ready to get creeped out on your next vacay? Not just a little scare — I'm talking meddling with ghosts and ghouls and other paranormal craziness. If that sounds like the ideal next vacation for you, then you’re certainly in the right place. But, if you're not sure where to travel, don't worry: This list of creepy places to travel based on your zodiac sign has got you covered.
It’s pretty obvious that every single person is different. I'm not just talking physical features or cultural backgrounds — but also when it comes to personality and preferences. Yes, people are different, but there certainly is something similar in nature when it comes to zodiac signs and how they capture the personality of a smaller group of people. OK, maybe not smaller group of people, but certainly smaller than the entire world. For example, when I meet an Aquarius, I tend to have a ton more in common with that person versus someone who is a Leo.
So when it comes to vacations, your zodiac sign can help determine the type of vacation that works for you. For example, Aries crave adventure on their vacations, while Libras really just need a quiet get away. Knowing your astrological sign can determine your activities on vacations, even down to your paranormal discoveries. Based on your zodiac sign, here are the creepy places you should visit for your next vacation.
Capricorn: Group Stroll Through Bachelor’s Grove Cemetery
Capricorns are a known to be a bit more reserved, but still love to have company around them — which is why a trip to a graveyard with a few friends or family is perfect! Link arms with your besties and walk through one of the most haunted graveyards located right outside Chicago, Illinois. Although there are only 82 plots in this graveyard, there have been a ton of sightings and creepy accounts from visitors to the cemetery.
Aquarius: Drive Through Clinton Road
Aquarius is all about finding off-the-beaten path adventure, which is why a drive on Clinton Road in the small town of West Milford, New Jersey makes perfect sense. Only 55 miles northwest of New York City, this 10-mile twisty stretch of road has been known for crazy ghost sightings, UFO’s, and even snow in the middle of the summer.
Pisces: Pack Your Bags At Willard Asylum
Pisces are all about getaways, especially if it has anything to do with culture. The Willard Asylum is seeping with culture and history, no matter how creepy it may seem. Back in 1995, an employee of the Willard Asylum in Willard, New York found 400 suitcases of patients who had passed away at the asylum during their stay (an average asylum stay was around 30 years). Go on a getaway to Willard, New York to tour the Willard Asylum and view suitcases found in the attic of the building. After getting the bejeezus creeped out of you on a tour, take in some gorgeous views of Seneca Lake around the corner!
Aries: Crawl The The Shanghai Tunnels
Aries can’t vacation if adventure isn’t involved, which is why trekking through the Shanghai Tunnels is the perfect creepy trip for an Aries. Right inside the lovely city of Portland, Oregon, the Shanghai tunnels (also known as the Old Portland Underground) connect from Old Town/Chinatown to the Business section of Portland — and are most definitely the reason to why being “shanghaied” is a phrase. Starting in 1850 and ending as late as 1940, men were snatched from these tunnels, kidnapped, and sold to sea captains. It’s a super creepy, adventurous place to visit — and even supplies a group ghost tour if you get enough people!
Taurus: Luxury Tour At Winchester Mystery House
When it comes to luxury, Taurus is all over it. Which is why a visit to the Winchester Mystery House is perfect for a creepy getaway — giving that the house is located in San Jose and all. Along with being in a prime destination for shopping and beach vacating, the Winchester Mystery House has opened a new tour that allows visitors to see never before seen parts of the estate! Not familiar with this creepy house? It’s the home of Sarah Winchester, the widow of gun magnate William Winchester, and is said to be chock-full of paranormal activity.
Gemini: Stay At The Lizzie Borden Bed & Breakfast
Gemini do well when thrown into any situations, particularly in situations that would seem creepy or unusual to the normal bloke. Staying at the Lizzie Borden Bed & Breakfast, home of Lizzie Borden, who was suspected of allegedly committing the axe murders of her father and stepmother, is obviously the perfect creepy thing for a Gemini to do. For $225 a night, you can stay in Lizzie Borden’s room, and spend the evening tour the house and learning about her trial (and release soon after). Who knows if the axe murderer still haunts the halls...
Cancer: Family Sleepover At The Villisca Ax Murder House
Similar to the Lizzie Borden house, you can actually reserve an overnight stay at the Villisca Ax Murder House! Cancers enjoy time with family or friends, so plan a family vacation and spend a night in the creepy Villisca Ax Murder House in Iowa. If getting haunted by the murderer (or murderers) of the Josiah Moore family isn’t enough, than keep in mind that psychics have confirmed the dwelling of spirits within the building — and tours even have been cut short based on paranormal activity. Good luck...
Leo: Sleep With The Spirits At The Stanley Hotel
When it comes to vacations, Leos like to go all out. They do everything big (like, I’m talking Gatsby party kind of big). So for a creepy vacation, Leos should visit the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado. That’s right — the infamous hotel from Stephen King’s The Shining is actually available for you to stay at. Not only have there been paranormal sightings (particularly in their ballroom), but it seems the hotel could even be cursed by spirits that have been disrupted from their eternal sleep.
Virgo: Haunted Activities At The Whaley House
If you’re a Virgo, then you are well aware of your need to plan every single little detail of your journey — which is why the Whaley House is perfect for your planning tendencies. This particular destination offers a ton of tours and events to plan for, and is located right in San Diego, California! So if you’re sick of haunted folklore, then you can go get your Yelp planning on over on the San Diego streets.
Libra: Find Ghosts At Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum
Libras look for peace and tranquility, and sometimes a getaway means finding a quiet town to actually just get away. The Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum is located in Weston, West Virginia — a tiny little town in Lewis County that has a population of less than 5,000 people. This quiet getaway also is home to the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum, where almost 2,400 patients with mental illnesses stayed during its prime in the '50s. Due to its deteriorating facility, the hospital closed down... which had a huge economic effect on the town that they have yet to recover from. Take a ghost tour of the asylum and experience the spirits that haunt this town 'till this day.
Scorpio: Take In The Beachy Views At The St. Augustine Lighthouse
If nature is present, Scorpios are there. Scorpios are all about becoming one with nature — and would take a camp out in the woods over a luxury hotel any day. Since most creepy locations are located in towns or cities, Scorpios would do best in the sleepy town of St. Augustine, Florida — where the haunted lighthouse lures over the town. Sleep on the white sandy beaches during the day, and try to take a creepy “Dark of the Moon” tour at the lighthouse to spot paranormal activity (and potentially the spirit of two girls who died there).
Sagittarius: Pay Respects At The Grave Of The Female Stranger
It wouldn’t be surprising if all Sagittariuses have book shelves covered with mystery novels, because they certainly love the unknown. Taking a visit to the Grave of the Female Stranger is the perfect creepy mystery that the Sagittarius desires. Located in Alexandria, Virginia, this grave is where a woman was buried by her husband who left their identities completely unknown after arriving to town in 1816. Although there are many theories to whom these people could have been, identity has never been confirmed.
