1. Anoka, Minnesota

Several years back, I got an amazing opportunity to visit the twin cities in Minnesota for celebrating Halloween. Actually, one of my close friends had moved to vivacious and fine condo in Anoka. Believe me; the city of Anoka is enriched with real scenic beauty as it shelters lush parks and beautiful river views. In addition, there is the sophisticated downtown which is loaded with chic shops and restaurants. The most striking part about Anoka is that it is recognized as ‘Halloween Capital of the World’ and at the beginning I wasn’t aware of this. It was at that time, when I was noticing the vibrant preparations that were carried out in full force and then my friend informed me about the same.

This added more excitement and boosted my spirit as I was at the world’s best spot to celebrate my Halloween festival. You guys to come here and participate in the varied annual events of Orange Tie Ball (October 23), Pumpkin Carving Contest and Light Up the Night Parade (October 24), Medallion Hunt (October 25), Halloween Bingo (October 27), Wine Tasting (October 29), Preschool Costume Contest and Parade of Little People (October 30), and Gray Ghost Run, Grand Day Parade and Ambassador Coronation (October 31).

Kansas City marks its origin back to 1821, the same year when Missouri was admitted to the Union. Also, one more remarkable activity took place in the same year, it is been reported by the city officials that a Frenchman from St. Louis known as Francois Chouteau navigated the Missouri River and established a trading post about three miles below the great bend in the river. From then onwards, the city prospered both in terms of geographical area and prominence as an American crossroads.

Recently, after the city escalated over its original boundaries, it witnessed more prosperity and developments as the city converted its milestone stockyards, warehouse and factory area into a Mecca dedicated especially for the family tourists for entertainment and business purposes. Major developments can be credited to Kansas City’s haunted houses as it is been seen as must-see of this region. During your tour, catch up the major key attraction ‘Edge of Hell’ which is a five-storey marvel perched at 1200 West 13th Street. Make sure you get views of The Beast, a close-by attraction.
