Celebrating Las Vegas Halloween in 2020
Nothing says Halloween like visiting a haunted house or exploring the paranormal with friends and family. This year brings some new challenges when trying to plan an outing with Covid-19 restrictions and hazards, but that doesn’t mean October needs to be a fizzle out like the rest of the year. Here I am going to show you a few fun activities at places that are taking the virus seriously while still making sure that locals can celebrate the season.
Las Vegas Haunts
Las Vegas Haunts has two different houses for thrill-seekers to attempt. In order to keep crowd sides manageable, entry is with ticket only that can be pre-purchased on their website
From the website, “Under the guise of a mental health facility, there have been unknown activities at the Asylum. Rumors abound, everything from genetic enhancing to viral testing. To appease local concerns the Asylum is allowing visitors to view the facility.”
From the website, “In the latest incarnation of the Asylum the facilitate has been taken over by an unknown government agency. While rumors abound about the activities at the Meadview, it becomes good business for the Hotel. Visitors to the facility usually spend a night or two at the Hotel. This business becomes the life blood of the Hotel…or maybe it’s doom… could it once again become….HOTEL FEAR!”
Oct 1-Oct 31
Tickets start at $20.00
Zak Bagans Haunted Museum

Growing up my family and I have always spent our free time and vacations in the great outdoors. I’ve spent time living in Nevada, Utah, and Arizona and I have seen the beauty all over the Southwest. Now I enjoy exploring remote areas far off the beaten path and seeing what amazing things are out there. There is nothing better than sitting around a campfire with friends and family after a long day of exploring and just talking.
