Los Angeles is renowned as a modern city, but it has just as many spooks and thrills as a backwoods village built around a cemetery. If you’re looking for a place that can raise the hair on your neck, investigate some of these creepy spots.
“Suicide Bridge” Pasadena
A bridge that was once a part of the historical route 66, “Suicide Bridge” has rumors and tales dating all the way back from before it’s construction. The most notable was the tale of a worker who fell to his death off the side of the bridge into wet cement. According to the tale, they left him to die in there, permanently becoming a part of the bridge, and that his ghost urges those who wish to end it all to take their final steps over the ledge, plummeting to their deaths in a 150-foot free fall. It’s not too far-fetched; over 100 suicides have been reported on this bridge.
In 1993, the bridge was renovated—as a part of the renovation, and in an attempt to stop the deaths, they gated off the sides of the bridge, slowing the rampant death rates. Today, it’s a somber reminder of those who have perished—and as good a spot as any to feel the laments of restless spirits.
The Beverly Hills Bermuda Triangle
Many strange events have happened on or near this plot of land, so much so that it has become one to avoid by the locals. Dubbed the “Beverly Hills Bermuda Triangle” by the locales, it’s around this small, seemingly insignificant plot that notorious deaths and near-death experiences have happened. Howard Hughes crashed his plane here; Ronni Chasen, a popular hollywood publicist, was killed in a drive by shooting; and rock duo Jan and Dean were nearly killed in a fateful crash. Many more odd occurrences have filled this area with an odd feeling when standing nearby, and deemed it haunted by the locals. If you’ve ever wanted to watch a tragedy unfold, this is a good place to start—but be careful, for the tragedy could be yours!
