For some individuals, exploring creepy places is considered as an adventure. And those visiting San Diego should find a good number of creepy spots to explore because, there are a handful of scary spots in the area.
The website San Diego Family enumerated the many hair raising locations in the area. Villa Montezuma is among the frightening locations that they have named. “Complete with gargoyles, this architectural masterpiece located in Sherman Heights was once the home of eccentric pianist and author Jesse Shepard. Shepard’s theatrical piano concerts for San Diego’s high society were described as “ethereal” and “otherworldly” in 1913, and it’s said that he dabbled in séances at the house. People have reported the sound of music being played, faces in the windows, and stained glass portraits that appear to have aged over time. Sadly, the house is closed to the public, but it is worth the drive to see this stunning Victorian mansion—especially at night.”

Hanutedhouse.com meantime featured the creepiest structures in San Diego, California. Horton Hotel is part of their list.
“As one enters the hotel, the ground area near the front desk was the Saddle Shop area. The hotel lobby has on display a life-size paper mache horse, the advertising mascot of the original saddle shop. The grand, wide Victorian oak staircase takes the visitor up from the lobby to the other floors. Each room is uniquely decorated with antiques, including antique queen bed, hand-carved armoires, and period decor, including lace curtains. Many of the rooms have large bay windows (taken from the original hotels) or balconies which overlook a view of the city or a view of the New Orleans style open courtyard, which has tree-lined gardens and a bubbling lion fountain, a favorite place for weddings.”

For those looking for extreme horror, San Diego has the answer to that too.
The Independent has featured the McKamey Manor, which the British-based publication described as a place where visitors can live their own horror film.
“McKamey Manor in San Diego, California isn’t your usual haunted house, instead of sighing at pop-up ghosts you can see fairground operators smoking a cigarette behind, you’re bound, gagged, drenched in blood and terrorised for four to seven hours. Claiming to be the world’s most extreme haunted house, it grinds down guests through sheer terror, force feeding them, riding them, shouting in their faces, shutting them in small boxes and much, much more.”
