Mystic, Conn.: 5 Towns with Spooky Names
A seaport town and former whaling village that's been inhabited since before the American Revolution, Mystic has no shortage of spooky sights and events to go with its spiritual-sounding name. From
mid-October through Halloween, the Mystic Seaport (pictured) hosts its "Nautical Nightmares" event, where visitors are treated to tales of ghost ships and haunted legends, or the more kid-friendly "Sights and Frights." You can stay in the Whitehall Mansion, a bed and breakfast in Mystic that is rumored to be haunted by the children of the family who built the home in 1771.
