New Bedford, Fairhaven, Fall River and the entire Southcoast gets a little bit spooky once fall hits. The area is chock full of haunted houses that can go from mild, all the way to blood chilling.

So why exactly is the Southcoast such a spooky place? Maybe because of it's history. Maybe because once you hit the east coast, ghosts have no where else to go. They can't swim, right? So the Southcoast becomes their home. Luckily, they are willing to play along. We have some great local Haunted houses for you to check out.
