Virginia is one of the oldest states in the country, meaning there has been plenty of time to acquire a haunted past. It’s no secret that our state has one or two frightening tales to tell. Or one hundred. So in the spirit (no pun intended) of embracing our spookiness, we have compiled a list of reasons that make Virginia so uniquely terrifying.

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!
