We are slowly creeping into October, so you know what that means! Halloween-Scary-themed blog time! Now this isn’t just going to be me recommending scary movies it is more so me showing you some cool stuff I’ve experienced over the years during my time in Chicago. For instance, one cool activity you might like is Navy Pier’s Haunted House experience. The theme changes every year, but the purpose is always the same: to absolutely terrify all those who enter, and all things considered they do a horrifyingly good job. I’ve gone in middle school and high school and have had a lot of fun with it. It is something I recommend to do with friends to maximize the fun; the prices aren’t bad and is a great group activity. But if you don’t want to go downtown I would recommend looking for haunted houses all throughout the Chicagoland area. There are some great ones who put a lot of effort in, as Halloween isn’t just a one night activity for some, a lot of people put time and money into making the holiday a month-long experience and if you are fan, you should help to support the entities that do this. Don’t think being in college now means you can’t get into the Halloween spirit, there’s more to it than just going to parties with adult-themed costumes looking to do what you may see in movies. Of course, that’s something to look forward to, but walking around in costume throughout campus can lead to some surprising social connections and could lead to meeting new people, so don’t be afraid to let your scary flag fly. Have a great Halloween month!
