Upgraded Points compiled all of the cities that are the best to visit if you want to see or BE ghosts!

"Have you ever wondered where you’d haunt if you were a ghost? While the question may seem silly, it opens up a new lens through which we can explore America’s cities as we approach the spookiest time of the year. We’ve compiled a ranking of the best places for spirits and specters to reside based on factors like the number of cemeteries, “actual” haunted houses, and even reported ghost sightings. So whether you’re a spirit looking for a new stomping ground or a curious mortal eager to hunt for ghosts in haunted locales, you’ve come to the right place."

This is not your grandma's basement type of ghost! These cities are

"considered the paranormal playgrounds of America."

Are you ready to step into the spooky side of things?

Where Does Grand Rapids Rank?

With all of the spooky and haunted places in West Michigan, specifically Grand Rapids, you may be wondering where Grand Rapids falls on this list.

You will be surprised that it is actually ranked at number 50 on the list.

With that being said, I am genuinely surprised that Grand Rapids is over Detroit, which is sitting at number 71. I would have thought all of the Motown people would have been haunting the city.
