You think that it is only Halloween that is scaring? Sometimes, we find ourselves in real scary places that do not need costumes. Everything there would be real and if you are not a little brave, you may be doing a little running if you ever find yourself alone in some of these places. Of course, some of these destinations are haunting, but they are still famous. We would be looking at some cemeteries in the world that are really scary and popular as tourist attractions in the cities they are located.

This is not just a cemetery, it is here that you would always come to remember that so many men gave up their lives for America, with over  360,000 American veterans lying here, covered with headstones, it has become a historic place to visit. You would find the grave of John F. Kennedy's grave.  If there is one thing that you may not want to miss, it is the ceremonial changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier every thirty minutes in the spring and summer, and every hour on the hour from October to March.
