Boo at the Zoo: This fun family event is held at the National Zoo each year. This year it is October 25-27, 2013.
Fright at the Museum: This scary exhibit at the National Crime Museum will make you want to sleep with the lights on!
Take a haunted tour of DC: The Most Haunted Houses walking tour will take you through Lafayette Park, which is known as one of the most haunted areas of DC! For more haunted spots, DC Ghost Tours show you “a Washington DC roadmap of the paranormal”.
DC Drag Queen Race: For something a little less scary, head to Dupont Circle to check out this over the top, flamboyant annual race. Stay for a fun block party following the race. It attracts a very diverse crowd, and it is worth checking out, at least once.
Last but not least, Georgetown is the place to be on Halloween night. The streets are blocked off, and costumed revelers wander in and out of the bars on M Street and Wisconsin Avenue. It makes for some fun people watching!
