New England has a wicked history, and Newport’s cobblestoned streets, centuries-old buildings and graveyards dating back to the mid-1600s create the perfect backdrop for a spooky evening of storytelling and ghost hunting. Being a lover of Newport’s history I have found that Ghost Tours of Newport is a fun and creepy way to explore the city while learning more about its darker side. Though best known for mansions, sailing, tennis and golf, Newport was founded long before the Guilded Age and has no shortage of spooky secrets.
For an adventure that is a little less scary, Escobar Farms in near-by Portsmouth is the perfect place. Their corn maze covers 8 acres of land and is both family and dog friendly! They also offer hayrides and have a pumpkin patch for the full fall in New England experience.
