There’s plenty of Halloween fun to be had in Miami - from house of horrors to spooky mazes, trick-or-treating to costume parties, and unlimited fun with creepy crawlies. Here’s our quick list of some of the best things to do in town.

Kids and families will love to go trick-or-treating at the Zoo Boo organized by Zoo Miami, as even the residents get to enjoy Halloween treats this day. Water babies should head to the Miami Seaquarium from the 25th to the 27th to shake a leg at Flipper’s Dance Party at Monster Splash. The curious lot will enjoy taking part in the creepy science experiments held at the Annual Spooky Science Monster Mash within the Frost Museum of Science. Craft lovers will enjoy getting their hands dirty crafting their own Jack-o-Lantern with Ghosts in the Garden at the Miami Beach Botanical Garden. And, nature lovers will love their little encounters with spiders and carnivorous plants attending the Friendly Creatures of the Night at the Fairchild.

For a bit more daring, a Ghost Tour of the Deering Estate comes highly recommended. The Miami House of Horror Haunted Carnival at the Miami International Mall is another excursion worth exploring this time of year. Though the list of Halloween parties taking place around town is endless, here are a couple of the best picks – Wynwood Fear Factory’s musical and spooky ensemble, Halloween Night on the Terrace at Club Space, the free HalloWYN Block Party in Wynwood, free Halloween on the Mile at Coral Gables, the Halloween at the Biltmore bash, Ghost Town Halloween soiree at E11even, Spooky with Hoj at Do Not Sit On The Furniture, the Miami Nice 2019 Annual Halloween Yacht Party aboard the South Beach Lady, and the free Halloween costume party on Lincoln Road.
