The Best Halloween Attractions in the DMV


Jack-o- lanterns are out, Party City is around every corner, and pumpkin spice latte’s fill the air! As a college student, trick-or-treating is way beyond our years but of course we don’t really want to give up one of the most anticipated holiday of the year— Halloween. It’s the only time to pull out that sexy outfit you’ve wanted to wear outside of your bedroom walls. Slutty nurses, playboy bunnies and sexy cats will be everywhere! Now that you have picked your outfit, you need to find somewhere to go and have a little fun! D.C, Maryland, and Virginia areas have some great attractions to look forward to! Enjoy all of the excitement and thrill, D.C has to offer you in your night of screams!

Field of Screams:

Located right outside of Baltimore lives THE  #1 Multi Haunt and Top Rates Scream Park in the DMV area! With 4 Haunting attractions there is no way you will walk out of there without goose bumps up and down your back. Walk through the darkest woods or go into a paintball war as zombies surround you and your friends. My only advice is if you dare to enter Field of Screams, don’t go alone!
