Hocus pocus, its time to focus… on the best decorated houses for Halloween in Chicago’s suburbs! Local families have gone all out this Halloween creating displays for everyone to enjoy. My boo crew loves to pile in the car and drive around looking at giant Halloween displays. We hop out of the car to check out the local spooky decorations and music. The kids love to bring glow sticks, a pumpkin cookie, and hot apple cider for a fun night out. Sometimes we even let them dress up in their Halloween costumes to do our spooky driving tours! Neighbors all over Chicagoland deck out their houses with spooky decorations, punny gravestones, fog machines, and bubbles.

We think this pack of glow sticks is pretty great and one of the moms on our team found this flashlight that projects a ghost, spider, pumpkin, skull, or bat, which makes it even more fun!

    Now that the Halloween season is over, I wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed your list! My husband and I would pick a different group each weekend. We made it to all the houses! We appreciate all the work you do in putting together this list…all the details and pictures. We like that the houses were listed in alphabetical order as well as grouped by area. By the way, we live in New
    Lenox and we are glad you had some houses from New Lenox listed.
    Thanks again for the nice service you have provided!
