Three Spooky Activities Near Highlands Ranch to Get You in the Halloween Spirit

From horror films to haunted houses, there’s just something we love about getting scared silly. It’s a frightening time of year and for Halloween enthusiasts, it’s also the most fun. Luckily for you, there are plenty of spooky activities to participate in this fall near our very own Highlands Ranch apartments.

Go Haunted Housing if You Dare

Some people may turn their noses up at haunted houses, claiming they aren’t even scary. Sure, the ghosts may be actors, but it’s quite exhilarating to pretend you are in a scary movie, even if only for twenty minutes. There are many haunted house attractions near Highlands Ranch for you and a group of friends to check out for a memorable weekend.

Head to the Theater for a Scary Movie

It isn’t Halloween unless you’ve watched a scary movie. Alamo Drafthouse and Landmark’s Esquire Theater are both playing horror classics throughout the month of October. If you’d rather stay in and host a scary movie watch party, we recommend Scream, Rosemary’s Baby, Silence of the Lambs and for those who don’t particularly enjoy jump scares, Practical Magic.

Visit a Pumpkin Patch

Okay, so this option isn’t really that spooky. However, visiting a pumpkin patch is the ultimate fall activity. Head to Lone Creek Farms for a full day of fun and pick out the plumpest pumpkin to take home and carve. While visiting a pumpkin patch isn’t all that scary, you can at least deck out your home with some sinister decorations.

If you’re looking for a fall activity that’s less frightful, you can also visit a local farmers market to pick up pumpkins and other seasonal items. For a closer look at our luxury apartments, schedule a tour with Legacy at Highlands Ranch today.
