A ghostly tale or unexplained phenomenon can be celebrated all year long in Oregon, so you don’t have to wait for Halloween. Costume parties, subterranean excursions, and visits to real-life settings from Twilight and other popular television shows are all available. There are many haunted places to visit in Oregon, but here are a few more that are ready to greet you for a very good time.
Relax and unwind with a Spooky Cocktail
With a Halloween-themed cocktail in hand, you’ll have an unforgettable night out on the town. An urban Portland haunted bar called Raven’s Manor recreates the mythical world of mad Dr. Raven and his human experiments in a haunted-themed cocktail bar. Check out the “deadly tonics” and “eerie elixirs,” such the Lingering Shadow cocktail made with burned absinthe, crème de violet, cherries, and Champagne — as well as the tombstone tacos! Take a spooky mixology class to ratchet things up a notch. The Elixir Experience with Dr. Raven will teach you to make two ominous concoctions while accompanied by a terrifying phantom of the mansion.
Begin Your Ghoulish Journey
Some of the locales featured in scary movies and TV shows are simple to geek out over if you’re a fan of the genre. Oregon is home to a number of well-known filming sites, including some from the Twilight Saga, which was adapted into feature films thanks to the use of Oregon-based filming locations. To give you an example, St. Helens served as Port Angeles in the movie. As well as other memorable images, Silver Falls State Park was the setting for Bella and Edward in the treetops.
In the TV show Grimm, a detective in Portland, Oregon, protects the city against magical creatures by investigating and capturing them. Forest Park’s 5,200 acres of moss-covered tree trunks served as a visual inspiration for the Brothers Grimm’s Black Forest tales. The St. Johns Bridge, Hotel deLuxe, and Helvetia Tavern are just a few of the famous filming locations in Portland that you can visit to get into the atmosphere of the show.
Plunge Into the Shadows
Since so many people are interred in cemeteries, going down there can be unnerving for some people. Pendleton Underground Tours offers this eerie descent into the earth’s crust. Pendleton’s red-light district and the city’s history of gambling, prostitution, and Chinese opium dens are all explored by the tour guides as well as the town itself. The Astoria Underground Tour takes you through Astoria’s abandoned tunnel system beneath the city’s streets on the Oregon Coast. The self-guided journey takes you through an underground maze, revealing its history and intrigue along the way.
Tilly, the terrible spy
Visitors to the Oregon Coast are drawn to the lighthouses because of their distinctive designs, breathtaking vistas, and rich histories. An Oregon Coast campfire isn’t complete without telling ghost stories about one specific lighthouse. The Tillamook Rock Lighthouse, better known as Terrible Tilly, is located off the shore of Ecola State Park and stands on a basalt rock. Some believe that the lighthouse is haunted since it has witnessed shipwrecks, ravaging seas, and lives lost at sea. The lighthouse crew was stuck on its shores for weeks at a time while installing it.
