The Halloween season is upon us, and Providence, RI is brimming with ways to celebrate this most wicked time of year. Stroll along the illuminated winding paths at the Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular and be amazed by the scores of intricately carved pumpkins. Take a walk on Providence's paranormal side on a Providence Ghost Tour. Immerse yourself in an evening of mystery and intrigue at Mysterium: The Eternal Masquerade. Enjoy a cocktail and a bite at one of the city's local haunts.
Featured in Time's list of "The 14 Best Road Trips to Take in the Fall," Providence has plenty of ways to scare up some Halloween fun. Providence’s native son H.P. Lovecraft was one of the most important writers of horror fiction. Visit his grave in Swan Point Cemetery and see what mysterious mementos his fans have left behind. Too spooky? Then get the ultimate costume inspiration by popping into the fun and fantastic world of the Big Nazo Puppet Lab. Need a libation after all that inspiration? Try some local pumpkin-inspired ales and cocktails at restaurants throughout the city.
Make it a Wicked Weekend Whenever by booking a stay in one of the city’s fabulous hotels. Providence’s compact and walkable downtown makes it easy to explore right outside your hotel room door.
