Fall is here in the Laurel Highlands with harvest festivals, terrifying haunted attractions, and the picturesque array of colors across the rolling hills and mountains.  

Things To Do

Huston's Haunted HollowHaunted Happenings
Pack the entire month of October with one haunted excursion after another. Are you brave enough to take a hayride through hell? Pass through a rift between worlds, spend your evening with “Mad Mae,” an evil landlady who makes sure all guests sleep like the dead. If you don’t have the heart for these terrifying frights, be sure to check out some less scary, more fun, family-friendly Halloween activities. 

Check out our guide for where to get the best look at the colorful display of changing leaves across the Laurel Highlands. Take a fall drive through the colorful display on historic and scenic roads, snap some photos at a covered bridge, zip through the trees, take a tour of an architectural masterpiece, and more.
