Updated for 2022
For many families, October is all about Halloween, and there are many ways to celebrate. One of the perks of living in LA is that there are more creative and talented people here than anywhere else, so we get to see the coolest decorations and haunted houses all over town.
Here’s a list of amazing Halloween decorations you can see driving around SoCal in 2022. Make a point this year to get out there and see as many of them as you can.
If you’re looking for Haunted Houses, just be sure to check if they’re open this year and whether they might be too scary for your little ones. Happy Halloween!

The House on McLaughlin is by far the best! They do light shows go go to the music every hour And they don’t have interactive animatronics! My children ask to go every single day. Spectacular
Saturday 31st of October 2020
@Jonathan, Agreed! Skip the others lol ?
Sunday 25th of October 2020
My kids flipped out at this house on Jessica dr. I’ve had to take them back 3 times. I admit it’s spectacular with the flourescent centipedes and forest. Loved the Venus fly traps Whoever you are, awesome job
Sunday 25th of October 2020
The house in Mt Washington on Jessica Drive is amazing with all the neon and glow in the dark centipedes, spider webs, 12ft tall trees with eyes that glow and skulls at the end of tree limbs, and the Giant Venus Fly trap is so cool. It’s a must see on your tour of decorated houses.

The Haunt with No Name Yet is my favorite! I’m not really into gory walkthroughs. This haunt is really spooky, with a nice atmosphere. There’s lots of detail, and I think like everything is hand made by the creators. Definitely worth a visit!
