Haunted Philadelphia

It’s around the corner, my favorite time of year, Fall.  I chuckle at the Facebook multiple choice questions for Fall.  Yes, I want to take a drive to enjoy leaves, have dinner with friends read a book, drink a pumpkin spice coffee and on and on.  It’s a wonderful time of the year and I look forward to the cooler weather!  My kids enjoy haunted sites, well Amanda more than Alex.  Two of their favorites are Pennhurst and The Bates Motel.  It that time of year when the haunted houses and tours are back in action.
