Greenville, SC is already a destination for Halloween haunt seekers in the southeast. The Upstate boasts a dozen professional haunted attractions, from terrifying trails and exciting escape rooms to traditional walk-thru haunted houses. Some of these pro haunts offer several attractions in one, intended to appeal to a wide variety of tastes for terror. But that often means long lines, especially during the week leading up to Halloween night. If you desire a less congested, more atmospheric activity, consider a tour of the area’s spook-tacularly decorated homes! GVLtoday recently posted a list of Greenville’s top spots for amazing Halloween décor.

I am always on the lookout for amateur home haunts. The passion and creativity of their designers embodies the spirit of the season and reminds me of my own first haunt and love for Halloween. Houses with delightfully dramatic decorations satisfy my appetite for eerie art direction.
Greenville is adorned with some frighteningly festive Halloween decor.
The GVLtoday article lists a few handfuls of homes within a several mile radius and gives a quick logline about each. That's all I need to load the car up with my loved ones and some snacks and head out for an evening of free entertainment. It feels great to get out of the house and drive around my beloved city to look at something other than TV, and in a 100% safe environment, without having to wear a mask (Halloween masks excepted).
