Halloween is my favorite holiday of the year and every year, I take my kids and drive around Charleston to look at the incredivble

This year, I asked around and compiled a list of the top homes or neighborhoods to witness spectacular Halloween decorations and here they are!

Looking for some more Halloween fun? Don’t forget to check out these great resources!

A Halloween Driving Tour

Ivy Hall: 3241 Morningdale Drive

3241 Morningdale Drive is THE home to see in North Mt. Pleasant.  Owner, Kelly Frazier Miller, and mastermind behind the Halloween decorations said that she makes many of her props by hand. Miller starts building the props in April and usually spends eight hours a day for several weeks to set everything up. In total, it takes her hundreds of hours to complete her masterpiece.

“I have always loved Halloween and my son is a Halloween fanatic as well but I was decorating well before him. I also decorate for Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the Fourth of July. It has been a very busy year! Seeing the joy that I bring to all of the people who come to see it makes all the work worth it! That’s really what it is all about for me.” Miller said.

This is definitely one to see!


Whispering Marsh in Dunes West

The Whispering Marsh neighborhood in Dunes West is known for going all out at Halloween complete with a costume parade, chili and cornbread cook-off, and people ‘BOO-ing’ homes with secret bags of treats. Check out the home to the immediate left upon entering the neighborhood and also the home at the corner of Tall Grass Circle and Grass Marsh for incredible Halloween displays!

Try to count the number of skeletons and props used at this home. I promise you’ll lose count! The owner of this elaborate display is known for extensive displays and allows visitors to walk through it on Halloween.
