If you watch shows like “Medium” and “Ghost Hunters” itching for a chance to experience paranormal activity, these destinations are your ticket to terror. If you’re someone who firmly says you don’t believe in ghosts, then you should have no problem visiting these either, right?
The Paris Catacombs
Sure, it’s all croissants, fake Louis Vuitton Vendors and Moulin Rouge above ground, but just 60 feet beneath this city of love is the stuff that nightmares are made of. The Paris Catacombs is an underground crypt of epic proportions, housing approximately 6 million pulse-less Parisians.
Due to over-population in graveyards, the Parisians began digging up bodies and moving them to what is now a popular tourist destination, but was then just the useless outskirts of the town.
Artistry runs in the Parisian’s blood, so logically the walls of the crypt had to be “ornamented” in bones and skulls. Breathtaking. Literally.
The Stanley Hotel
Estes Park, Colorado, USA
Any place that gets the creative wheels pinning of Stephen King is naturally ranked high for its freaky factors. Room 217 at The Stanley inspired the cult classic “The Shining.”
You can’t help but feel bad for this hotel, which probably had no intention of being a destination for ghost-hunters. But it is now. Guests have claimed to see apparitions all over the property.
See them for yourself by booking a room at The Stanley’s official website.
