Halloween marks a time of the year when fall harvest festivals are starting to wind down and the desert begins to take on an eerie presence.
Haunted houses and Halloween events are some of the best fall activities in Tucson and whether you have a family or not, there always seem to be plenty of options for activities besides haunted houses and frightening things.
Valley of the Moon has been running its Haunted Ruins for almost 90 years and this spooky event is always a great time for anyone. Watch as Van Helsing battles the Dark Lord in this tour that takes you through a land of magic and mystery. This event is fun for the whole family, so bring your kids along with you and make Halloween a memorable event.
Nightfall at Old Tucson is one of the scariest haunted houses in the area and while you might have to leave the kids at home for this one, you will probably have the time of your life getting scared.
