The Most Terrifying Ghost Story To Ever Come Out Of Texas Is Truly Chilling
Every state has its own urban legends, but I think it’s safe to say Texas has the most given its size and rich history. Some of them are silly and totally unrealistic while others, like the legend of La Llorona, are plausible even to the biggest skeptics.
Everyone who grew up in West or South Texas heard this story throughout their childhood (and probably spent many a night lying awake with the covers pulled up to their neck because of it), and for them, the ghostly woman is much more than lore – she’s real. This is her story, and it will chill you to the bone.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
