Whether you’re a horror fanatic or a hardened skeptic, it’s hard to resist a good fright fest—and it turns out you don’t have to go very far to find one. The U.S. was built on a pretty macabre foundation and is home to hundreds of the most chilling places on Earth. We picked a dozen destinations that will give you goosebumps, from demonic dungeons and mansions of murder to haunted hotels and a forest believed to be inhabited by the devil himself. Many of these sites have been immortalized in books and movies (listed here, too), and their stories are bound to send shivers up your spine.




Haunted Mansion in Savannah Georgia
HAMILTON-TURNER INN IN SAVANNAH, GEORGIA

Savannah has a reputation as one of the spookiest cities in the South. Among its most chilling landmarks is the Hamilton-Turner Inn, which was built in 1873 and still accepts guests. Originally a private residence, it was the site of several eerie deaths, including that of a little girl who fell down a staircase while playing near the pool table. Guests insist they’ve heard billiard balls rolling across the floor and sensed people sneaking up on them. Parties at this storied mansion were depicted in the bestselling novel “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil”, and the hit movie of the same name starring John Cusack.


THE SHANGHAI TUNNELS IN PORTLAND, OREGON

Today’s it’s one of the hippest cities in the country, but Portland’s sketchy past is immortalized underground in the Shanghai Tunnels, a decrepit subterranean dungeon. The tunnels were used in the 19th century to imprison and torture thousands of kidnapped men and women, who were later led onto ships bound for Asia and forced into slave labor and prostitution. The sickening phenomenon was known as “Shanghaiing.” You can tour the Portland Underground—which is said to be haunted by the ghosts of its victims—or just read about it in “Under the Shanghai Tunnels”, a fictional tale that delves into the seedy history of these dark portals.
