Don't Go There this Halloween!

Obviously there are places that you shouldn't go on All Hallows' Eve. The clue is often in the name. You don't need to be a genius to know that Dead Women Crossing in Oklahoma might not be the best place to hang-out on Halloween.

If this were a horror movie you would of course ignore this warning and visit Dead Women Crossing any way. You really don't have to. If you are intent on dying you could try visiting any one of Esri's Thirteen Spooky Halloween Haunts. This story map features some of the most 'fiendishly named locations in the United States and Canada'.

Esri's unlucky thirteen locations are not the only scary place names in the USA. Batchgeo has created an interactive map featuring many more. The Scary Place Names for Halloween map shows the locations of places throughout the country which feature the words 'Ghost', 'Jack-o-lantern', 'Witch', 'Dracula', 'Murderer' or 'Demon' somewhere in their name.
