What's The Creepiest Place That You've Ever Traveled To?

Descriptions of family dinners do not count.

We've all been to a place that just didn't seem "right." You know, against all logic and reason, it just gave you really bad vibes.

This is just a normal dilapidated building, but you just know somebody was murdered up in there.

Maybe that creepy as hell place was "Snake Island" in Brazil.

The island is literally uninhabitable, because there are venomous snakes EVERYWHERE.

According to a sketchy urban legend, the last — and only — people who lived on the island were a lighthouse keeper and his family. Until the snakes snuck into their house and KILLED THEM ALL. We're not sure if the story is true or not, but there is an abandoned, decaying lighthouse on the island that looks creepy as hell.

Or maybe you were brave enough to check out this spooky, abandoned ghost town in Centralia, Pennsylvania.

Centralia used to be a lively, vibrant coal-mining town all the way back in 1841. Until a terrible fire destroyed the borough in 1962. But here's the weird thing — the fire never went out and it continues to burn today.

And maybe you could even get through a night alone in this abandoned insane asylum on this deserted Italian island.

In the 1920s, an insane asylum was built in Poveglia, off the coast of Venice. Lobotomies and all kinds of horrific outdated experiments were performed, until it was shut down in 1968 and the island was closed off to the public.
