Calling all ‘ghouls’: if you and your family love all that fall has to offer, including the spooky bits, we want to share with you the many interesting haunts coming to your neighborhood this month. You may even find a trick, a treat, or a surprise as you read on, and plan out your activities. We’ll have more for you next week, but for now let’s talk about Halloween in Big Sur.

People have written and talked quite a bit about Point Sur Lightstation. It has appeared in various lists as one of the top five most haunted lighthouses in America. Who lost their lives, and whose spirits still live there? It’s been said that the ghost of a former stationkeepers’ wife does. It’s been said the spirits of many sailors, from ships crashing nearby, live there. Here’s an interesting read on such things. But you can more than just read: you can pay a visit to this Lightstation on one of two dates to attend their 10th Annual Ghost Tour! All good researches will want to investigate personally; right? Here are the relevant details:
