  • Haunted Dead End, 311 Gainsborg Ave. (Only on Halloween), Every Halloween, a group of family and friends set up one of the most freightening experiences for anyone who is in the area. This isn't your typical haunted house walkthough, yet more of a stage full of actors covered in the terrifying costumes, chasing around trick-or-treaters up and down the block.
  • Silver Lake. (Seasonal and only available during certain conditions), On the border of West Harrison rests Silver Lake, where with the proper permits and a small boat you can fish on the lake during the Spring and Summer. Also during the Winter when there is a period of consecutive days under freezing temperatures, the lake will freeze and town officials allow people to skate on the lake.
