Halloween is right around the corner and it’s time to start celebrating! Head to Sesame Place for the Count’s Halloween Spooktacular to make it extra special this year.
This awesome party has been ongoing since Sept. 26, and goes through Nov. 1, so there is plenty of time to dress up and strut your stuff on Sesame Street.
The park is transformed into a family-friendly Halloween playground, so come in costume and celebrate not-too-spooky fun. Guests can enjoy trick-or-treating throughout the park, Halloween-themed shows, pumpkin decorating, rides and an interactive Scarecrow Scavenger Hunt. Don’t miss out on the unique photo opportunities with your favorite furry friends on the Halloween-themed floats.
The Count needs your help! While wandering the park, keep an eye out for crows on the scarecrows in the Interactive Scarecrow Scavenger Hunt. If you are interested in participating, pick up your activity sheet in the Main Plaza and set off in search of all six scarecrows. Once you’ve found them all, turn in your activity sheet and receive a prize.
Don’t forget to stop at the many contactless trick-or-treating spots around the park. Reusable tote bags will be available for purchase at select merchandise carts or feel free to bring your own. Team members will deliver individually wrapped treats right to bags to minimize interaction.
Head to Sesame Place’s website to purchase tickets, currently on sale for up to 60 percent off. When purchasing, decide if you want to go on Friday night or during the day — either way you have to reserve a spot for the day and time you want to visit.
If you can’t make it or have a blast when you were there, keep an eye out for the next event, A Very Furry Christmas, where Sesame Place is transformed into a Christmas wonderland.
While urban wine country might sound like an oxymoron, it’s actually a reality at the stunning City Vineyard in New York City’s Tribeca neighborhood. The water-side venue is the perfect host for your next event — whatever that may be, from 20 to 200 guests and from cocktail party to plated dinner.
Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains is the perfect place for autumnal fun, and at Camelback Resort, families can also enjoy some spooks this Halloween season with its Haunted Mountain Coaster and Lights Out Zip Line.

Driving into the quaint town of Luray, Virginia, was a much-needed reprieve from 4.5 hours spent driving mostly highways from New Jersey. My sister and I arrived in town around 4 p.m., found parking in the lot provided by Hotel Laurance, and happily jumped out to mask up, check-in and stretch our legs.
