BOO! It’s frightening that Terrifying-tober could be cancelled due to COVID-19. But many haunted attractions prepare to welcome this year’s fright fest in new ways. Bates Motel in Glen Mills welcomes back guests for fearful fun with new regulations and a horrifying haunted walk instead of their hayride. The scary Shocktoberfest in Sinking Springs offers a new Zombie Safari Tour as guests stroll the wood’s terrifying trails. The only question is, can you handle the haunt? TheBatesMotel.

Tiny Home, Big Impact.
You guessed it! We’re talking about the HGTV hot topic, Tiny Homes. But did you know the big ways these little lodgings can be used? Liberation Tiny Homes of Lancaster County proposed their houses to help Philadelphia’s homeless. The company desires partnership with the city’s Student-Run Emergency Housing Unit, building a tiny home village for those in need. Also perfect for a home office, guesthouse and she shed, there’s nothing these homes can’t do. 101 Ashmore Dr., Leola. LiberationTinyHomes.com
