In some places, Halloween is an excuse to wear way-too-little clothing, stay out all night, and do things your dead ancestors would be ashamed of. And in Miami, that’s about as special an event as a Willie Chirino concert, so we’ve gotta take things to another level to make Halloween exceptional.
This year South Florida has really outdone itself, with multiple Halloween popup bars, a party on a pirate ship, an all-night festival in a cemetery, and a dozen other spooky activations that make this one of the best months of the year.

Nothing feels spookier than driving through the pitch blackness of Crandon Park, then up the ominous driveway to the grandeur of the Ritz Carlton. Inside the Ritz you’ll find Rumbar decked out in skeletons, cobwebs, and black cats, with special drinks (served in a blood bag!), Halloween-themed foods, and spooky movies on TV.

Unlike most Halloween attractions, the Paranoia maze is actually open all year. But it’ll seem especially terrifying around Halloween, where you’re dumped in total darkness and must confront your darkest fears to escape. Choose to leave before you’re done and you’ll be publicly shamed, forced to hold an “I chickened out” sign on Paranoia’s website.
