Ultimate “Halloween in September” Road Trip Guide

A guide to scariest attractions, what to see, what to do, places to stuff your face, and where to rest your head!

alexas_photos raven-988218_960_720

Do you bleed orange and black? Have you ever wished that Halloween lasted more than one day? Have you ever wanted to start your All Hallows Eve celebration in September? If you answered yes to any of the three keep reading!

Plan now for your spooktacular Pulaski County, Missouri road trip in late September! This weekend adventure will put you in the Halloween spirit!

Friday September 22/September 29

Jump right into the thrills and chills by arriving early at Haunted Hill to beat the line! This freakishly frightening trail has been described as Mid-Missouri’s most haunted outdoor attraction.
*Buy the speed pass to skip the long line.

UPDATE: Sadly, on August 21, 2017 Haunted Hill announced via Facebook that their attraction is now permanently closed. Nearby Rising Haunted Attraction opens September 29. 

Continue the screamfest during the Haunted River Float at Ruby’s Landing on the Gasconade River near Waynesville. A raft is your sanctuary as you paddle through the inky darkness that envelops the river. Who knows what is in the water? This float trip isn’t for the faint of heart! Make it safely back to land and roast marshmallows and Jiffy Pop over the campfire. A free night of camping is included in float trip admission so don’t forget the tent!

Saturday September 23/September 30

Hungry? Hit a mom and pop cafe for a hearty breakfast before a full day of exploring, adventuring, and ghoulish fun! Route 66 Diner is a favorite for locals and travelers.
*An early start is recommended to squeeze in all the fun!

Explore Route 66 for a few hours. The Visitors Center in Saint Robert offers free turn by turn directions. Don’t miss the legendary Devils Elbow area bridges, the fudge factory near Saint Robert, and downtown Waynesville. While in Waynesville take a picture of W.H. Croaker, explore the Farmer’s Market, visit the 1903 Route 66 Courthouse Museum and the Old Stagecoach Stop Museum and walk the Trail of Tears remembrance trail. *Don’t miss the boutiques, old fashioned candy shop, and eateries on the Square.

Hungry? Saint Robert is known for its delicious food! For an international twist try schnitzel at The Hub Restaurant, Mama Mia’s Greek gyros, or food truck pineapple fried rice at Mobile Thai Kitchen. Sweetwater Barbecue‘s pulled pork is so good that you will think someone’s Grandma is manning the kitchen.

Slow the pace during a short leisurely float on the Big Piney or Gasconade River. Pick an outfitter and your vessel (inner tube, raft, kayak, or canoe) for a carefree afternoon with Mother Nature.
*Pack a camera in your dry bag to grab stunning snaps along the way!

Cap off an evening you won’t forget as a ghost hunter with Crocker’s Optimistic Paranormal Society (C.O.P.S) during a Paranormal Investigation of the Historic Talbot House on North Street in Waynesville, Missouri. Built in 1899, the Talbot House is one of Waynesville’s oldest and most interesting homes. Paid reservations are required and spots are very limited so book your group today!
*Investigators must be 18 or older.

Grab some shut eye at one of Saint Robert’s hotels. Saint Robert has hotel choices that will fit any budget. Many hotels have an indoor pool or offer a free hot breakfast.
*Book directly with the hotel for the cheapest rate.

Sunday September 24/October 1

For a special treat grab a baker’s dozen of fresh, handmade, premium gourmet donuts at Lamb’s Donuts near the front gate of Fort Leonard Wood. These sweet treats have been fueling locals, visitors, soldiers, and law enforcement for years!
*For a savory start order the chorizo breakfast burrito.

Before saying goodbye to Pulaski County head to Uncle Buck’s Pumpkin Patch near Dixon to choose the perfect pumpkin for your Halloween jack-o-lantern.
