Best Social Distancing Halloween Activities Oct 27, 2020

The spookiest season of the year is upon us! While Halloween may look a little different this year, there are plenty of “socially distant” Halloween ideas you can safely enjoy at home and in and around Boston.

Sharpen Up Your Carving Skills

No Halloween-themed home is complete without a jack o’lantern. Grab a friend and a couple of pumpkins and get carving! Feeling ambitious? Here are a few tips on how to carve your pumpkin like a pro.

Make it a Movie Night

Halloween and scary movies go hand in hand, and this time of year there is a never-ending library of creepy classics available to stream online. We’ve found a list that counts down the top 37 Halloween films, ranging from slashers like Halloween to cult classics like Hocus Pocus.

Find a New Witch’s Brew

For the culinary-inclined among us, there are countless Halloween-themed cocktails and recipes to keep your cauldron bubbling all month long. The Jack-O-Lantern, Black Widow, and Poison Apple Punch are just a few of our favorites. The nearby Trader Joe’s has all the ingredients you’ll need to make your masterpiece – except, maybe, eye of newt.

Discover Boston’s Haunted History

As one of New England’s oldest cities, Boston’s history is packed with paranormal tales. Boston Ghosts tours will take you on a 60-minute, socially-distanced trek through downtown’s most haunted hotspots, including The Omni Parker House and Boston Common. You can also take a self-guided tour by checking out 26 of Boston’s most historic cemeteries and this list of the most haunted places in Boston.

Experience Salem

Known for its 17th-century witch trials, Salem has become a world-renowned Halloween destination. This year, there are plenty of self-guided and outdoor activities to explore. Visit the three historic burying grounds significant to the Witch Trials of 1692, walk along the Heritage Trail, or take a self-guided tour of the city’s Hocus Pocus filming locations.
