The Stanley Hotel
"All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy," or so goes the famous saying from Stephen King's The Shining. The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, CO, served as the horror author's inspiration for the classic horror novel, but the haunted history of the Stanley is anything but fictional. Ghosts enter and exit rooms as they please, supposedly hoping to steer guests clear of the same dangers that claimed their own lives. Want to experience the hotel for yourself? There are a selection of "haunted rooms" available for spook-seeking patrons, and every TV at the hotel has a special channel just for marathon viewings of The Shining.
