SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- San Diego is a perfect spot to get spooked this Halloween -- that's because it's one of the most haunted cities in the country.

Some spots are haunted by people who've died in tragedies. Other spots are final resting places. And still other scary spots are man made. 

No matter where you go, you will get spooked!

If you're looking to get into the spirit this Halloween, check out San Diego's Top 3 Haunted Attractions.

The Haunted Hotel, located downtown in the Gaslamp Quarter, is the longest running haunted house in San Diego. Haunt World Magazine says it's one of the top 13 haunted houses in America.

Every year, there's something new. 

Visitors will plunge into the chaos of the Hellevator, stroll down the Zombie-infested alley, play with the creepy dolls of Doll Island, take a ride to insanity on the Clown Subway and survive the mayhem of the Twisted Torture Temple!

The Haunted Hotel is so real, you're guaranteed to scream for your life as you try to find your way out.

For a scary experience too big to house indoors, take a stroll you'll never forget at the Haunted Trail at Balboa Park. 

It's a mile long twisted grove of pines and gnarled oaks. Visitors watch your back! You'll never know what way the terror will hit you.

The Haunted Trail is not for children under 10 or the faint of heart.

Get into the spirit anytime of the year with Old Town Ghosts and Gravestones, San Diego's Frightseeing tour. 

Take a ride on the dark side and travel back in time to hear about the spirits of the notorious characters who lived and died in San Diego.

You may encounter notorious wild characters like gunslingers, gamblers and ‘Ladies of the Night’ whose spirits live on in the dark recesses of the city's historic buildings and neighborhoods.

Visit the Whaley House - considered America's most haunted hotel by the Travel Channel.  Who these spirits are and why they're here remains a mystery. 

Be warned! This hour and a half tour requires reservations.

Happy Halloween San Diego!
