Living in Southeast Florida is a dream come true. A seemingly endless summer.  Live life like it’s one long weekend. Perhaps its to early to quit your job and run away from all responsibilities but you can get as close as it gets to the island life vibe here in the Palm Beaches.

We all have thought about it occasionally while sitting in a horrendous traffic jam, a boring meeting, or even as you’re shoveling snow out of the driveway, your thoughts turn to paradise. Walking along the beach, drinking frozen umbrella drinks from coconut shells, and never having cold feet again that a pair of socks and flips flops can’t warm up.  Oh, the smile on your face as drive to work along a beach road or winding intracoastal drive.

While Palm Beach County is usually the opposite of spooky, during October we get a little festive. Here a few fun, local places to visit before Halloween.

Riddle House

Located in Yesteryear Village at the South Florida Fairgrounds, the Riddle House is said to be full of ghosts.

In the early 1900s, it was the home of the gatekeeper for a cemetery in West Palm Beach. Years later, it was moved to become part of the village. After the move, workers swore that their tools were mysteriously moved, and one man claimed a tool hit someone in the head.

Visitors have seen a boy playing in a bedroom and a woman getting ready for bed, according to reports.
