Decades Ago, This Abandoned Arizona Town Used To Be A Christmas Destination

Driving through Arizona, you can find many abandoned places sitting just a stone’s throw from the highway. Ghost towns, vestiges of once thriving businesses, and neglected tourist stops are scattered around the state, slowly being reclaimed by nature. One tourist stop that we’re going to look at today happens to be a former, year-round Christmas destination named after our favorite jolly man in a red suit.
