Don’t Drive On This Haunted Street In Illinois Or You May Regret It

As we approach Halloween, we are looking for the real life haunts and thrills. Thrills are exactly what you will get at Acid Bridge. Lebanon Road in Collinsville, Illinois is one of the most haunted places in the state. This road has seven railroad bridges over it. They are colloquially referred to as the “seven gates of Hell.” As the story goes, if someone drives under all of these bridges at midnight, he will go to Hell by way of a portal. All of the bridges are supposedly guarded by Hell Hounds. The terrifying stories surrounding this bridge are not new, either. They have been circulating for some 40 years.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
