Harry Potter and the Hogwarts Staff

Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry was established around the year 990 in the highlands of Scotland. Its four founders–Godric Gryffindor, Helga Hufflepuff, Rowena Ravenclaw, and Salazar Slytherin–succeeded in becoming the “finest school of witchcraft and wizardry in the world”. That’s if you believe Rubeus Hagrid, which we generally do. Hogwarts is prestigious largely because of its excellent professors and support staff, which keep the school running and its students safe. Or relatively safe. It is a wizarding school, after all.

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!
