The Haunted Road Trip That Will Lead You To The Scariest Places In Colorado
As if you couldn’t tell, we here at Only in Colorado are pretty much obsessed with October, Halloween, and everything paranormal that goes along with it! That being said, we couldn’t help but curate this road trip of a few of Colorado’s most haunted spots and what makes them so creepy. Grab your scare-loving friends, hop in the car, and drive with caution as we visit a few of the most haunted places in Colorado. (Link to the original map can be found
1. Stanley Hotel (Estes Park)
You KNOW we couldn't begin our haunted Colorado road trip without mentioning the historic Stanley Hotel, which gained notoriety in the 1970s after the release of Stephen King's "The Shining" (which was inspired by his stay at the Estes Park inn).
2. Fitzsimons Army Hospital (Aurora)
The hospital itself may have closed in 1999, but that hasn't slowed the reports of angry spirits, sightings of deceased military, or unexplainable noises...
3. Cheesman Park (Denver)
Note to self (and a warning to others): Do NOT build a park or anything else over an old cemetery... want to know why? Just visit Cheesman after dark and let us know what you see/hear/feel.
4. Black Hawk
Ready to get out and stretch your legs? Then you have come to the right place, as Black Hawk is home to numerous gambling venues, shops, and restaurants! (Just watch your step; apparitions have been spotted at various casinos, hotels, and cemeteries.)
5. Hotel Colorado (Glenwood Springs)
Welcome to the Hotel Colorado: Home to historic lodging, gourmet meals, and an unidentified female spirit who likes to stand over male guests as they sleep.
6. Meeker Hotel and Cafe (Meeker)
Hungry for good food and even more of the paranormal? Then you have come to the right place! Let's begin with the Sauteed Mushroom Caps with a side of Charlie Dunbar (the original owner who was killed during a gunfight that still likes to hang around the hotel and chivalrously lead women down the long staircase) before moving onto the French Dip and Painted Lady (who wakes guests in the middle of the night with her strong perfume).
