I am planning a trip with some friends to ohio soon. Most of our time will be spent around north olmsted, cleveland, and sandusky.  Does anyone know of any paranormal activity in these areas or at least somewhat close to them?

You picked a great area of Ohio!  Can't vouch for their paranormal integrity, but here are some of the more well-known legends that I've checked out and are worth the trip:

Gore Orphanage (aka Swift's Hollow) near Vermillion

Maple Grove Cemetery (also in Vermillion)

Johnson's Island (near Sandusky)--strongly recommended

Cholera Cemetery (also near Sandusky)

Republic Ghost Train and nearby cemetery in Republic, Ohio (by Tiffin)

Rogue's Hollow (covering Medina and Wayne counties, @30-40 mins south of Cleveland)

Witches' Hill aka Old Chestnut Grove Cemetery(Olmsted Falls)

Milan Cemetery, including Abbott's Tomb (also near Sandusky)

Lakeview Cemetery, including Garfield's Tomb/Monument (Cleveland Heights)

Top O' The World (in Akron, about 20 mins south of Cleveland)

Towner's Woods (in Kent, about 20 mins southeast of Cleveland)

Mater Dolorosa cemetery (Peninsula, 15 mins south of Cleveland)...oh, hell, ALL of Peninsula!

Franklin Castle (Cleveland..but it's still closed to the public during restoration)

Squire's Castle (located in the Cleveland Metroparks North Chagrin Reservation)

Flat Iron Grill in the Flats (well, the Cleveland flats are also worth checking out as part of the old Kingsbury Run killer's "playground," tho I have found no reports of hauntings based upon that gory bit of history)

Kirtland, Ohio, Wisner Road (site of the infamous melonheads and one of about 28 crybaby bridges in Ohio ::D)

There are plenty more, but these are must-see's on any tour of Haunted Northeast Ohio.   8)

Wow!  Some of those places sound really interesting.  Hopefully I will have time to do some investigating.  If I get any results I will post them.  Thanks for the help!

Try Canal Rd. in Independence (I think) Ohio (that's in Cleveland). People driving there at night have reported bright headlights that come out of nowhere. They chase you for a couple of miles and then disappear. There's lot's of history there. The visitor center is a 19th century house. Also, the cemetary is haunted. Also, at night, along the canal there has been the ghost of a civil war soldier looking for his head and there has been the ghost of a woman too. They appear on opposite sides of the canal but they never meet. Also, there is an old house on the corner of Canal Rd. and Tinker's Creek Rd. I thought it was haunted before I found out it actually is haunted. I don't remember what happened there, though. Also, a kid commited suicide there. Hope this helps. I'd love to come ghost hunting with you!

I heard about these cemetaries on the scariest places in u.s. which have run on weird travels on the travel channel.

Daewen,

The Cuy. Valley is an excellent choice!  One of the places I mentioned, Mater Dolorosa cemetery, is in the heart of this haunted section of Ohio.  

The strange lights on Canal Road is very similar to the Helltown legend.  Wondering if they're not connected...the chasing lights, at least in Helltown version, actually have some basis in fact.  A former landowner recently confessed to scaring off local teens/would-be-trespassers at night with his station wagon, and would flick on the lights for added effect.  Shoot, even the local police have been in on the joke, using the legends to their advantage to discourage kids.  Has this discouraged kids?  Hell, no!  It only enhances the legends.   :P

Hey, have you been to Tinker's Creek cemetery?  Word is that it's very active.  Unfortunately, vandalism has become so bad that the local police now have a policy of ticketing anyone who's there at night, and they're very agressive about it.

Regarding the headless ghost, the version I heard was that it was the ghost of a woman who was decapitated.  Of course, that doesn't mean that there aren't two headless ghosts in the Valley.  Wouldn't surprise me in the least.   :o

Well, I'm glad you've heard of it...I go there (canal rd.) all the time and I didn't know it was haunted until I heard about it...have you heard about the house?
Oh yeah, and thank you, I'm glad to be here. It's nice to be able to talk to people about ghosts and not have them think I'm crazy...
