Guests on the Halloween Hayride at Broadford Park ride on flatbed trailers pulled by trucks along the lakefront, passing 16 scenes of live zombies and ghosts—if you can call zombies and ghosts “live.” Local merchants decorate parking meters in all manner of Halloween getups. And nearby, the former B&O Railroad Station (now the B&O Museum) is rumored to be haunted. Scenic trails, a Main Street complete with an old-time soda fountain, and an annual Autumn Glory Festival add to the appeal of Oakland, rated No. 1 overall for fall travel.
