Haunted Houses And Halloween Weekend Breaks

Halloween is an estimated $11.3 billion holiday -- with more than $300 million of that spent to dress up family pets -- so it's no wonder that kids have ghost stories and candy on their minds from the beginning of the school year. When the chill winds blow, a family Halloween weekend away at any of America's haunted houses, an outing to a creepy place, or just a costume shopping spree may restore your sanity and revive your family's best spooky stories.

Aw Shucks! Autumn Adventures In A Major Corn Maze

We think visiting a farm -- one with a huge corn maze the kids can puzzle on -- is a great autumn family getaway, and there are approximately 500 to choose from this season. If you can also pick apples, sit on a hay bale, buy some local produce, and bring home a big pumpkin at half the price it sells for in your home town, it's a value getaway too.
