Looking for some safe Halloween fun for the family? We put together this awesome driving tour of local homes with fabulously spooky Halloween displays. So load up the kids and go for a spooky drive. Which is your favorite stop?
We started this driving tour in 2020 because really, we needed the stuff to do and people around here are very good apparently at doing some seriously creepy Halloween decorations. It was so much fun, for 2022 we have four routes: Greenville, Simpsonville/Mauldin, Greer, and Five Forks (only two houses) – see the map. **When looking at the map, the addresses in orange have been confirmed for 2022. Any other color has not. We still have a few houses not on routes that we need to drive by but all the homes on each of the routes has been driven by and confirmed that they have great Halloween decorations!
Extra special thanks to readers Jason Hurdich and Heather Harris who tested many of the houses on our routes and checked them out for scare ratings and accuracy!

Kidding Around Spotify Halloween Playlist
Enjoy some family-friendly Halloween music while you follow the tour, through the Kidding Around Spotify playlist we created. You can stream it through your car speakers with the Spotify App.
If you have homes we missed, shoot us a message and we can possibly add them to our driving tour.
And when you go and see these homes, please be considerate and not go traipsing around the property or driving too fast in neighborhoods, or hitting things with your car.
2022 Addition: The Scare Rating
We’ve added a scare rating from 1-5 with 5 being the scariest, 1 being tame. This is subjective but the scariest one is the Haunted Castle of Mauldin due to the multiple instances of gore, terrifying clowns, headless babies, werewolves, and other nightmarish ghouls so that was the scale we weighed everything else against.
Here are the routes on a map and listed them below:
