The thrill of Halloween can only be enhanced when you choose to spend the holiday in any of our Smith Mountain Lake towns while staying in one of our holiday hideaways! Offering comfort, style, and a spooky vibe that will make this day special, the only thing better than the candy you will enjoy is the happiness you will feel coming home to us at the end of every day. This guide to the top things to do at Halloween during your Virginia vacation will ensure that every minute of your stay will be exciting and fun!

Ghost Walk 2021 at the Salem Museum, October 1 & 2, 801 E Main Street in Salem

Haunted houses are fun, but a real live (dead?) ghost tour through a cemetery is definitely a spooktacular way to enjoy the holiday! Take a weekend drive through the Virginia countryside, enjoying the fiery colors of fall and end the journey with a genuine ghost walk through a historic graveyard, learning a bit about the inhabitants who reside there. Wear comfortable walking shoes and keep your head on a swivel, as you remain on the lookout for visitors from the spirit world!

Stone Country Halloween Party, October 30 from 5-8 at Crazy Horse Marina in Moneta

Our second favorite part of the holiday (after the candy!) is creating elaborate costumes that allow us to be someone else for a few hours and the Stone Country Halloween Party held at the Crazy Horse Marina in Moneta allows us to win prizes for being the most creative! Featuring a costume contest, live music, and yummy treats, this party promises to be the highlight of your Virginia vacation!
