Looking for something slightly weird or spooky to do on Halloween — that doesn’t require a costume or an insatiable thirst for candy? Here are a few strange and unusual places you can visit.

The Magick Candle | Irvington
As Indiana’s oldest metaphysical store, this shop has everything you need to explore your witchy side from crystals to candles. It also offers tarot readings and reiki — call ahead to make an appointment.

Crown Hill Cemetery | Butler-Tarkington
Take a stroll among 215,000+ graves — including those of America’s first “Public Enemy No. 1" and the 23rd US president.

Scarlet Lane Brewing | Multiple locations
Grab a drink at one of several locations serving up “The Official Beer of Horror.” For an extra-strange experience, McCordsville is your best bet; it’s home to the dungeon of Sammy Terry, the longest running horror host in history.

Carmel Old Town Antique Mall | Carmel
All antique malls have a slight spook factor — but according to some visitors, there’s an easy-to-miss booth here that sells dozens of petrified animals like scorpions, snakes, and bats.

Twisted House | Broad Ripple
This outdoor sculpture is the perfect spot for a strange photo shoot, especially if you get creative with your camera angles.

Camp Chesterfield | Chesterfield
This 44-acre community hosts an impressive roster of mediums whom you can book readings, astrology lessons, and spiritual healing sessions with. If you’re more inclined to explore solo, you can take a walk through the camp’s stone labyrinth — which it claims will help you release old, patterned energy and shift your body into a “greater spiritual alignment.”

Moon Tree | Mile Square
Have a picnic underneath a 30-year old sycamore tree grown from a seed taken to the moon and back during the Apollo 14 lunar mission. Only 50 of these trees still exist today.
