You do not need to wait until Halloween in October to look for haunted scary pirate ships at places in and around the San Francisco Bay Area. Sure, regular haunted houses are fun, but spooky and scary haunted ghost ships are much cooler.
The Bay Area is a modern place full of brand new buildings and skyscrapers. But there is lots of history everywhere if you take the time to find it. And if you have a vivid imagination, you can bet that you can find haunted old ships that can still give a good scare all year long.
First, if you're just in the mood for some old-fashioned pirate fun, you better check out the annual Northern California Pirate Festival in Vallejo, California. Find out more at their website. They might even have some old buildings or houses that seem haunted.
Or maybe you want to see in person some real old ships that have lots of adventures hidden in their histories. If so, better make plans to visit the San Francisco Maritime National Historic Park over near Fisherman's Wharf. Here are the directions. For a list of the park's historic ships, go to this website.
Scared enough so far? If not there are plenty of other supposedly haunted places and scary ships around the San Francisco or Oakland Bay Area. Here is more information about other places.
You definitely should visit the U.S.S. Hornet vessel over in Alameda, California. Click here for information on getting there and visiting. This website has a lot of the history of the ship, which many people consider a haunted house or scary ship.
What about a buried ship right under ground in San Francisco? That should definitely be on your Halloween checklist in October. Find out more at this website. You will be surprised at how many ships are still buried underground all over the Bay Area.
These are just a few of many places that lots of people think are haunted. Have fun exploring these interesting sites all over the Bay Area.
