Halloween Weekend Attractions Happening in Cape Cod

Halloween is celebrated virtually everywhere. It's one of America's favorite holidays. Children (and even adults) dress up as whomever they like, people decorate houses to look haunted, and everyone carves at least one pumpkin during the season.

Cape Cod is no exception, and there have even been rumors that Cape Cod is one of the most haunted regions in New England. Not only is it a vacation hot spot, it has more than 400 years of history linked to it, along with paranormal events on land...and in the ocean.

The History of the Sonoma Valley, California's Wine Industry

The Sonoma Valley, located in Sonoma County, California, is known for primary one thing: wine. Known as the birthplace of the California wine industry, the valley is a vast field of vineyards and wineries--encompassing some of the first in the state. Sonoma Valley is home to 183-year-old vines and has stood the test of time.Some wineries, in fact, survived the impact of prohibition in the early 20th century. The valley's wines are now protected by the U.S. Federal Government's Sonoma Valley and Carneros American Viticultural Areas. The wine industry also survived an epidemic of a root disease called phylloxera, which affects the grapes and its vines.
