If you like to celebrate Halloween with a side of legit local spookiness, plan some road trippin' to these nearby haunted places In Illinois.

First off, let me just say that Haunted Rockford has a bunch of awesomely spooky tours to check out in the days leading up to Halloween, but if you're looking to take your ghost hunting on the road, here are a few close places named among the most haunted in Illinois according to onlyinyourstate.com:

  1. Amelia's Galena Ghost Tours - The premier ghost tour company in Galena offers seances, haunted pub crawls, history, ghost, vineyard tours and even nightly cottage rentals.
  2. Woodstock Opera House - Often called the most haunted place in Illinois, this opera house has its own phantom of the opera named Elvia, who often lays claim to seat 113 in the opera house.
  3. The Road House - This restaurant in Oregon, IL, is haunted by a woman whose murder was never solved and reports of flying utensils and strange sights are a usual thing for frequent diners.

Nope, it's all too scary for me, but I hope you have a hauntingly good time checking these places out.
