West Michigan Goes All Out with Halloween Decorated Houses
*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.
One of Our Favorite Halloween Decorated Houses
This year, a dragon from one of our favorite Halloween houses even won ArtPrize’s visitor favorite award!
Artist Jennifer Dunahee makes all sorts of wild haunted creatures for her annual display, The Haunting of Storybook Hollow.
She just got back from ArtPrize and will soon be setting up her friends at 4790 Biddeford Dr NE, Grand Rapids, MI.

I’ve made that note for this year’s publication.

I did help create this list and also help to maintain it. I’ve added you to our list! Thanks for reaching out!
There’s another house in Jenison, on Redwood dr that decorates every year. This year’s theme is, “Monsters Ball”.
Thanks for the tip, Maria! I added them to our list.
15 Anderson Sparta, MI has an awesome yard all decked out!
Thanks for the tip, Kim! I added them to our list.
Just wanted to confirm that Thornapple DR and Laraway Lake in Ada (Oliver Woods neighborhood) is decked out to the hilt! Much like Christmastime, the first house at the entrance goes ALL out; and many other houses throughout the neighborhood join in on a smaller scale.
Thank you so much, Julia! I have moved that to the confirmation list and added it our map.
Come check out GuyotsLights! We do a Halloween and sequenced light show! The Halloween show runs most nights from 6-10pm. Location can be found on our Facebook Page https://www. facebook.com/GuyotsLights
Excellent! Thank you, Kevin! I have added you to our list and map.
1447-1449 Escott Ave. NW. We have a 7ft werewolf, Pennywise the dancing clown (IT), skeleton horse and stagecoach, a 6ft spider on the roof and plenty of inflatables, including the whole Halloweentown cast from Nightmare before Christmas! Add us to the list!!!
On Ballpark , Deb does a great job every year…
It seems odd that this article doesn’t include a map link with all the addresses. Even worse, now that I want to make one, nothing on this site can be highlighted for copy/pasting? This is great information, not very usable.
Well Zach, you are a mind reader, because we JUST added a map, new this year! Enjoy. 🙂
How do you make the list? We are down the street from Kinview and Kinrow.
We decorate pretty good over here too.
We add anything that readers think is “worth the drive.”
1119 Conlon Ave between lake and hall east Grand Rapids. Cool arches and graveyard!
Please add a house that on Melita Ave off of Knapp St. I don’t know the specific address, but each year the home owner goes above and beyond with decor and actually dressing up to greet trick-or-treaters with a BOO!
Yes! I’ve seen this house and it’s honestly one of the best houses because the owner goes above-and-beyond in dressing up too!
Ashely – Thank you for the shout-out! I am the crazy Halloween lady you speak of and I am on the list above. We rented on Melita but purchased and moved to 921 Shawmut Ct NW!
Just found a super decked out house in Princeton Estates (Kentwood) this evening. It’s on Effingham.
