    The Pine Barrens

    Haunted woods where the Jersey Devil lurks

    The Pine Barrens is a vast stretch of woods bigger than Yosemite. Legend has it that a horrifying mishmash of animal parts called the Jersey Devil stalks these woods. It is a legend shared by various cultures, lending bizarre credence to the tale and making these woods a must-visit.

    Scattered throughout the Barrens are remnants of factories and their villages, many of which are not looked after and should not be visited. Travellers are instead invited to tour the Atsion and Batsto villages and their haunted mansions. Those who are disinclined to investigate the paranormal can still enjoy nature activities like canoeing and kayaking.

    Hotel Macomber

    An unwanted guest might visit you late at night

    Hotel Macomber is a haunted hotel in Cape May, one of America's most well-known ghost towns. Guests have the choice to stay in the room with the most activity, which can include an inexplicable banging on the door late at night. If that weren't enough, voices can be heard, clothes being stolen, and there was one guest who was even pushed into a walk-in refrigerator.

    It is recommended to stay during the off-season if you want to catch sight of a ghost. This is the kind of place where paranormal investigators have captured voices on tape. One of them famously moaned... “I'm still here.”

    Emlen Physick Estate, Cape May

    Its inhabitants have passed away… but never left

    • Luar biasa
    • Sejarah

    The Emlen Physick Estate is host to many lingering ghosts. Eerie music can be heard from empty rooms during tours, and sounds of children playing in empty hallways have also been reported. Renters and buyers have all been driven out, which is why it functions as a museum today and not a hotel.

    Some say this is why it's possible to even visit the grounds in the first place: the spirits are happy that it is still theirs. The Emlen Physick Estate holds an array of tours, including escape games and activities suitable for children. Just don't overstay your welcome.

    Lokasi: 1048 Washington St, Cape May, NJ 08204, USA

    Buka: Monday–Friday from 10.30 am to 3.30 pm, Sunday from 11.45 am to 2.30 pm, Saturday from 11.45 am to 3.30 pm

    The Grenville Hotel looks like a quaint inn fit for a wedding, but something ghostly lurks within its walls. There’s more to this centuries-old pink Victorian house. Guests have reported sounds of children playing and sights of apparitions during their stay here. There’d be noises of great activity coming from completely empty rooms, and furniture will move on its own.

    People claim that not a day goes by that something paranormal isn't witnessed. They say if you’re thinking of booking a room at this hotel, don't be surprised to find a figure sitting or standing at the foot of your bed.

    Flanders Hotel, Ocean City

    Meet Emily, the Lady in White

    The Flanders Hotel in Ocean City has rooms lavishly decorated like the Jazz Age, with Grace Kelly and Jimmy Stewart on past sign-in sheets – and a resident ghost. Emily appears to guests, dressed in a white nightgown, and she has a penchant for mischief. Expect objects to fall off tables and locks to be undone, or see if you can catch a glimpse of her spectral figure late at night.

    She's not alone, though. The catacombs in the basement were witness to a few mob hits, and victims of organised crime violence are thought to walk the floors, as well. If you decide to stay here, don't come alone.

    Ong's Hat, Pemberton Township

    A mystery too tangled to unravel

    • Bajet

    Ong's Hat is an abandoned town in Southampton, New Jersey, and a bit of a niche interest, where legends revolve around a few mysterious deaths. One such case was of a Polish couple who disappeared from the town. Seven years later, a woman's skull was found in the woods nearby, presumably hers. Possibly related are a set of conspiracy theories.

    A story began circulating on the internet in the '80s that disgraced Princeton scientists retreated there to conduct experiments in secret. These experiments had to do with interdimensional travel – and there seems to be some evidence that they succeeded. Whatever the truth about Ong's Hat, the place itself has gained an unmistakable hold on the imagination.
