Affordable Halloween Attractions In The Greater Charlotte Area

For those of us who are new to Winthrop or haven’t had a chance to explore the greater Rock Hill area, making plans this Halloween may be a tad bit difficult. It’s always hard coming to a new place and not really knowing what recreational activities there are, let alone which of those activities are not only easily accessible.


In addition to finding accessible Halloween attractions, it’s also important to keep in mind the cost of attending such events. Most college students, myself included, are on a fairly strict budget, and aren’t willing to shell out a ton of cash just to have a little bit of spooky fun. 

With these points in mind, I’d like to present some of what I believe to be the most promising and affordable Halloween attractions in the greater Charlotte/Rock Hill area. 


1. The Haunted Mill
