There are several hot-spots around the world, it only depends on what you are looking for.
Ghosts: plenty to choose from. England, Scotland and Ireland are all great places to go. Most castles, ancient inns and historic sites proudly boast
their ghostly denizens. Also, Rome and Turin in Italy are reckoned to be good places. In the US, Gettysburg has a good fame but the two most-haunted
battlefields according to old timers are Shiloh and Chickamauga.
Mysterious animals: if you are looking for flesh-and-bones cryptids, the best place is South-East Asia, especially the Laotian highlands. If you are
looking for wierd creatures (black dogs, enthities, etc), England and Scotland win again.
Scary places: the world scariest place is reckoned to be the lighthouse on the island of Tennevec, Brittany. It was one of the first lighthouses to be
fitted with a fully automatic control system because nobody is willing to stay there overnight. Also, Great Isaac Point on Bimini Island, Bahamas, is
reckoned to be a pretty scary place.
Area of general weirdness: Hockomock Swamp, New Jersey, has developed a reputation for inexplicable phenomena (UFOs, ghosts, Bigfoot, etc). Diablo
Valley near San Francisco,California, has also a nasty reputation, as well as Devil's Outpost, Labrador, and Le Champ du Diable, Quebec. Allow me a
word about the Bermuda Triangle. I have a relative who worked for a time as a commercial pilot in the Bahamas. He said that since the inception of the
LORAN and NAVSTAR navigation systems (both now superseded by GPS) there hasn't been a single inexpicable disapperance. He also said that he never had
any strange experience whatsoever while flying over the Triangle.
