This Haunted Road Trip Will Lead You To The Scariest Places In Nebraska

As Halloween draws closer, our minds keep drifting to the spooky, the scary, and the delightfully creepy. Nebraska has no shortage of hauntings and ghosts, both friendly and unfriendly. If you want to experience some of the state’s most haunted places, take a weekend and drive this spooky road trip. Bonus: pretty soon the fall foliage will be looking absolutely gorgeous, making your trip even better.

(This trip is a shortened version of our ultimate, three-part, full-state terrifying road trip – you can find the complete chilling journey here, here, and here.)

Whew! That was a LONG trip, but worth it, right? Nebraska’s ghost stories are so much fun to explore over and over.

You may have noticed that none of the state’s many haunted cemeteries are on this trip. That is because several readers have expressed concerns about ghost hunting visitors causing damage to graves, and we would hate to be responsible for anything like that happening. Eagle-eyed readers will also notice that the Norfolk Regional Center, arguably the most haunted place in Nebraska, is missing. The building was finally demolished this summer, so there is no longer a place to visit. We hope the spirits there found peace.

There are, of course, many, many more haunted sites that wouldn’t fit into just one road trip. See our ultimate terrifying road trip: Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3. Safe (and spooky) travels, friends!
