What are the best Halloween events in Rhode Island?

From haunted hikes to haunted houses and spooky corn mazes, Rhode Island transforms into an epic Halloween wonderland each fall.

What are the best Halloween towns in Rhode Island?

When it comes to a Halloween road trip or getaway, the best towns in Rhode Island to find yourself in at Halloween are the towns that are notoriously the most haunted. Providence and Newport most definitely belong on the Halloween bucket list. The most haunted hotel in the Ocean State is the Providence Biltmore. In 2000, it was named as the most haunted hotel in America by the American Hotel and Lodging Association. From legendary tales of satanic rituals held long, long ago, to raucous parties held by the mob during prohibition, the hotel has some very unusual history that lends itself to paranormal activities.

In terms of paranormal activity in general, Newport is known to have over-the-top paranormal occurrences spread throughout the town.
