OBSESSED: Coloradans Love Haunted Houses More than Most of USA
Halloween is right around the corner, and we are ready to be scared. Are you brave enough to go to a haunted house? Personally, there is no way I am brave enough to surround myself with the paranormal on purpose.
Do I believe in ghosts and the paranormal? I go back and forth. Sometimes I feel like it is dumb, but on the other hand, there is no way I keep leaving my silverware drawer open at home.

Coloradans Seek Out the Paranormal
There are an estimated 818 haunted house seekers and 1,433.8 ghost seekers per 10,000 residents.

One of The Most Haunted Houses in Colorado: The Stanley Hotel
The Stanley Hotel, which inspired Steven King to write The Shining, is a favorite for paranormal seekers in Colorado. King visited the hotel in 1974 and felt a paranormal presence.
