2021 Best-Decorated Halloween Houses: Map, Driving Routes, Photos, Descriptions and More!

FallOutdoor Activities

We are dying to bring you our 5th Annual Best Decorated Halloween Houses list with a map, photos, important details (like How scary is it? When will the display be up and ready for viewing? Are there certain hours?), and driving routes for Halloween House Tours!

Hocus Pocus, its time to focus… on the best decorated houses for Halloween in Chicago’s western 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. Pack up the kids and enjoy a night out this Halloween season!

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!

From October 1st through the 31st- the house is available for viewing daily starting at 7:30pm until 10:00pm (on non-rainy days).  Shows run every 15 minutes. The lady of the house has always been a Halloween enthusiast since she learned how to build her own gravestones as a kid. Over the years it evolved into a hobby and collection, and as technology has advanced so too has the presentation. With her husbands love of IT and her little knowledge about video editing it has only been elevated to turn into quite the spectacular show. Together they have taken their knowledge and skills to create a unique family friendly Halloween evening show for the city and surrounding area using video projection and whole house mapping. Tune to station 89.9 to hear the show. Or check them out on YouTube at https://youtu.be/wbsmCy7Eig4.

    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!
