It's fall in the Garden State...are you brave enough to visit?

October is here - and it's the best time of year in the Garden State...but it's not for everyone.  Some of us, like me, are embracing the season with cups of pumpkin coffee, scary movies on repeat, and creepy cute Halloween decorations.  I can't even tell you how many pumpkin-scented candles and soaps printed with skulls and bats I've bought over the past few weeks (the money I've spent on that is scary enough!)

Let's not forget the delicious treats too...the apple cider donuts, Halloween candies, and delicious fall-flavored pies are to die for.

This Fall, the friendly farms and amusement parks we're known for aren't places you'd want to visit alone - ghouls, creepy clowns, and asylum escapees are taking over!  It's impossible to walk around without the chance of someone scaring you at every corner.  You might even have to outrun a few chainsaws.

At the end of the day, everyone knows those aren't real scares...they're highly produced haunts with amazing actors.  But don't let that fool you, New Jersey is filled with real haunted places filled with creepy ghost tales.  You can even go on a ghost tour if you dare.

During the fall in New Jersey, you may not even feel safe in your own neighborhood.  Homes known for their manicured green lawns now have fake tombstones and skeletons on them.  There's a chill in the air, and the trees are starting to go bare, leaving an eerie feeling.

Fall is here, and the sunny, beach-filled days here at the Jersey Shore are far behind us.  Here's why you shouldn't visit NJ this fall (unless you're brave enough).
