More Haunted Houses
Some times, the nearest haunted house to you may be across the state line of Colorado. If you reside by the boundary with another state, or that is where the closest big city is, there should be a haunted house that is worth considering there. So in addition to the Colorado haunted houses, I’ve identified these border states with haunted attractions for you to also consider.
