*featured image is at 1920 Hall St SE, Grand Rapids, MI
Chasing down local Halloween light shows and Halloween houses is one of the best Halloween activities around!
Thanks to some amazingly creative folks, we can be awestruck by the best-decorated Halloween houses near Grand Rapids.
Drive around town this October and admire the work of Halloween house decorators that pull out all of the stops.
Do a Halloween Houses Driving Tour!
Choose from one of THREE driving routes that will take you to the best Halloween decorated yards and Halloween lights in West MI.
Each route is just over an hour long and features a nice variety of Halloween displays.
Routes are organized by area:
– North of Grand Rapids
– West of Grand Rapids
– East of Grand Rapids
North Driving Route
LISTINGS LABELED “North”
In our opinion, this is the route with the overall best Halloween yard displays, probably because Twiggy is on this route. You’ll also go through East Grand Rapids where there are several displays located near each other.
There’s a bonus stop on this route, too: Rasch’s Haunted Corn Maze & Sunflower Maze. (Stop D).
– The Haunted Sunflower or Creepy Corn maze are $15 each.
– The spooky tractor ride is $7. All 3 are $30
– Open Friday & Saturday evenings, 9 pm-11 pm.
Plus, they have Yummy donuts, hot turnovers, hot chocolate & hot apple cider.
Not all Halloween house decorating is the same, though, so before you set out on this route, glance through the listing descriptions below (look for the “north” label) to decide if this is the route for you.
(South) West Driving Route
LISTINGS LABELED with “W”
For families on the southwest side of GR, we have a route for you, too.
This 10-house driving tour will take you to Halloween decorators in Jenison, Hudsonville, Wyoming, and Kentwood.
Look for the houses labeled with a W to follow the West route, as seen on the map below.
East Driving Route
LISTINGS LABELED with “E”
There are spectacular displays east of Grand Rapids as well – but they’re quite spread out. This route will take you to a cool Halloween lights show in Alto (stay at least 10 minutes!)
A bonus flashlight corn maze is plotted on this map. Heidi”s Farmstand is open after dark – they offer maze entrance til 9 pm on Friday & Saturday evenings in October – and they are a great place to stop if you want donuts and cider, too. (Heidi’s is closed Sundays.) Tickets are $8 for adults and $6 for kids. Buy online.
Note* If you use the driving directions link below, know that the 10885 Carmen Oak Dr SE, Lowell, MI 49331 address isn’t included because the MapQuest system wouldn’t recognize that address. The 1406 Baywicke Dr address will get you close – you’ll have to navigate the rest of the way.

She just got back from ArtPrize and will soon be setting up her friends at 4790 Biddeford Dr NE, Grand Rapids, MI.
