Creeperum Haunted House

Fall is in the air, and Halloween is getting closer with every passing day.

To help you find the best places to celebrate and enjoy the season, here are a few fun things to do near our apartment communities:

Haunted Isle

If you dare, come along to the Haunted Isle in East Haven for a night of screams and fun. Legend says the things that nightmares are made of lurk somewhere in the woods at the end of the trolley tracks. Take the path down by the tracks to the gate at the start of the trail. Be sure to wear good walking shoes as the Isle is a wooded path with many twists, turns and mysterious happenings. Regular admission is $12 per person, and express admission is $20 per person. Tickets can be purchased online or at the door. Tours will take place every Friday and Saturday in the month of October between 7 and 10 p.m. For more information, visit the Shore Line Trolley Museum’s website.  (more…)

Last-minute Halloween Costumes

Thankfully, we’ve gathered some of the best last-minute Halloween costumes that you can make with things you probably have around the house.

Since you might already be dressed for bed by the time you get your invite, just go as you are! Add slippers and an eye mask for that something extra for your pajama party. (more…)
