It's Halloween and time to get spooked. Well, not really, just time to have fun and shed all the sugar from the candies. Let's explore the city and check out those "Haunted Houses" in the neighborhood. It's an easy peasy stroll in flat terrain.
Ideal for the newcomers to the city. You never thought these places are haunted. I didn't realize when I first moved here. This is a repeat event for me as long as I am in town. So join us.
