Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays, but there's no way I could've known how much better it would get with kids. Kids add a new brightness to everything, especially holidays, but there's an added aspect of fun around dressing up, trick-or-treating, and exploring all the excitement of fall. Obviously, the creepier parts of Halloween can be tricky to navigate with kids around, but you still don't want to miss out on the fun, even in a big city. Knowing the best kid-friendly haunted houses in Los Angeles, for example, can make sure you enjoy the spookiness of the holiday without scaring the pants off your babes (because nobody wants to deal with sleepless nights for weeks to follow).
Most of these haunted house attractions seem suitable for the whole family, but you're really the one that knows your kid best. Even then, kids are a constant surprise, and sometimes can be afraid of something that seems out of sorts even for them. In any regard, make sure you do your research before you go to get a sense of the scenes you might see — talking to your littles about it beforehand can help them know what to expect. And of course, if you're wary of the scare-factor, stick to a family-friendly pumpkin patch. There's plenty of fun to be had there, too.
