Tips for Celebrating Halloween on the Road

My daughter always gives us a hard time when we are on the road during a holiday. Sometimes, though, you cannot avoid it. Sometimes it is part of the adventure! I always try to bring the holiday with us, so that we still get to celebrate. Here are a few tips to help you if you are celebrating Halloween on the road:

  • Bring along costumes, trick-or-treat bags and other festive items for dress up.
  • Check calendars for areas you will be visiting ahead of time to learn about Halloween events, trick-or-treating in downtown areas or malls or more.
  • Bring along special Halloween treats.
  • Decorate the car with "spooky" items. 
  • Play Halloween Bingo: create bingo cards and see what Halloween items and decorations you find in your new location.
  • Ask locals. Depending on your schedule, you can ask when you arrive or put out a question somewhere like TripAdvisor. This is a good way to find the homes in the area with the best decorations!
  • Bring along a flashlight and spooky stories. Spend a hotel evening telling spooky stories and even creating your own.
  • Add in a visit to a pumpkin patch or a haunted house.
  • Halloween is also the perfect time to add in a visit to a candy factory if there is one where you are traveling.
  • Find out if any of the local theaters are playing Halloween movies. 
  • Plant some Halloween surprises in your packed items. Maybe a plastic spider here, a bag of gummy bears here.
