Welcome to fall neighbors, a.k.a. our favorite time of the year! The smell of pumpkin lattes fills the air, and we cannot stop thinking about all the fun things to do for Halloween in Los Angeles near your downtown Los Angeles apartments for rent.

Halloween in Los Angeles

Stranger Things Drive-in Experience

The first stop on our list is over in Hawkins, Indiana. To be honest, you cannot celebrate Halloween without defeating a Demogorgon with Will, Mike, Eleven, and the rest of the Stranger Things gang. This year experience it all within the comfort of your car. Hosted by Secret Cinema, the Stranger Things Drive-in Experience takes you through all your favorite sets including the Starcourt Mall with actors in costume. This spooktacular drive-in runs throughout October. 

Haunt’oween LA Halloween Drive-through

One of the most iconic places to go trick-or-treating in LA is in Woodland Hills. While it would seem as though trick-or-treating would be canceled, the Haunt’oween LA Halloween Drive-through is keeping the tradition alive. It begins on October 9th, goes through the 31st, and is perfect for the entire family. Drive into jack-o’-lantern tunnels, go pumpkin picking, and enjoy ‘door-to-door’ social distancing trick-or-treating.

Los Angeles Haunted Hayride

Up next is a staple in our book here at AVEN apartments in downtown LA. You can always depend on the Haunted Hayride to give you a good scare. Each year there is a theme. For their 12th installment, you can venture through ‘All Hallows Lane’ from your car. The adventure features a 40-foot screen of scenic environments from older hayrides and lasts for about an hour. Unlike previous years, the hayride will be set up at the Bonelli Regional Park in San Dimas. 

Halloween at Descanso

Not all of us are looking for a scare. Some of us just want to be surrounded by pumpkins and fall energy. For those of you living in LA at AVEN apartments for rent in downtown Los Angeles who are looking for those fall vibes, look no further than the Descanso Gardens. Unlike the rest of this list, this experience is on foot! Now through October 31st, get some fresh air and enjoy seasonal displays including a hay maze, a pumpkin arch, wooden jack-o’-lanterns, and a house made out of pumpkins.

Nights of the Jack

Last up is a classic Halloween extravaganza. This year, you can drive through King Gillette Ranch and gaze upon thousands of hand-carved jack-o’-lanterns. The experience lasts a bit shorter than the others on this list at 25 minutes but is well worth it.

Halloween in Los Angeles

Nothing can stop us from celebrating Halloween this year in Los Angeles. On behalf of everyone at AVEN luxury apartments in DTLA, we are witch-ing you all a very happy and safe Halloween!
