Haunted Hotels Header

Planning your next vacation? This map of haunted hotels is a ghost hunter's paradise. Take a tour of the United States and stay in some of the most haunted hotels in each state. You'll have to sleep with one eye open in some of these places so we sincerely hope you don't plan on taking this time to catch up on sleep. The accounts of paranormal activity in each venue varies, but the one thing they all have in common is some of their residents have never checked out. Prepare to see apparitions, be touched in your sleep by ghostly hands, or even levitated. (Okay, that last one sounds pretty cool!) Some of these permanent occupants enjoy playing tricks and others will not hesitate to tell you to get out of their hotel. If you are feeling brave, we've created a printable map with the shortest route to visit all the hotels in the contiguous states. We also did our homework and whipped up an infographic to help you learn a little bit about each of these haunted hotels, including the spookiest rooms to request at each location, in order to best prepare you for your journey!

Once a year, teachers get to lower the veil between responsible educator and the dirty little fun-havers that they are in real life (or “IRL” as the kids say). But you’re a teacher, and therefore know how to stick to a budget, so shelling out big bucks for a costume just isn’t going to happen. You want a disguise that’s easy, comfortable, appropriate, unique, AND that won’t dip too much into your “Wine While Grading Papers” fund. Well, you’ve come to the right place! We’ve rounded up the best costumes for teachers, and even separated them by specialty … though, if we’re keeping it real, all teachers collectively specialize in one thing: witty comebacks for, “What? I’m just texting my mom!” Hold on to your seats, blackboard bandits – costume school is now in session....

Mom and Dad of Ainsley Turner -- a.k.a. the “Hot Dog Princess” -- you both deserve a high five! In a world filled to the brim with little princesses-in-training, it’s refreshing when you happen upon a trailblazer – like a hot dog at her dance school’s dress up recital. The bold ballerina from North Carolina blew up the internet this summer with her unique approach to the class’ assignment. Embracing her individuality, Ainsley performed tendu fronts and pliés in full hot-off-the-grill regalia! Best of all, her dad proudly proclaimed that the entire thing was her idea. In short: The Hot Dog Princess rules in the kingdom of costumes!

We've all seen it. The amazing, unforgettable online videos shared on Facebooks and nightly news segments alike: a person (maybe?) in a giant inflatable Tyrannosaurus Rex costume, cavorting and jumping around town, seemingly unaware of any onlookers around them. This trend is an awesome one, and one we're kind of bummed to admit that we didn't come up with on our own. T. rex's are long extinct, so who's to say that the dinosaurs didn't enjoy playing soccer or going bowling on the weekends? (Scientists? Paleontologists?! Ross Gellar?! Pssh. Prove it.) If you're like us and LOVE these viral videos of inflatable T. rex's going about their business amidst unsuspecting humans, this blog post is for you. Here are favorite instances of T-Rex's in the mainstream; pop culture moments of inflatable, unadulterated bliss.
