Sometimes the history of a location and the events that once took place at a site can lead to stories about paranormal activity haunting a place. But often, stories are born from the real experiences of visitors who have had interactions with a paranormal presence at that location. While the stories might take on a life of their own - the experiences are still very real. So, when you're ready to ratchet up your interaction with the paranormal, there are creepy places you can visit that will definitely deliver on their spooky promise.
Many destinations are historical sites, like Philadelphia's Eastern State Penitentiary where the city even celebrates the haunted history of the former prison.

On your travels to any creepy location, you can even find creepy places to stay, so check out the list below for some haunted travel destinations of historical significance, international significance, or even little significance but haunted nonetheless.
