We Dare You To Take This Road Trip To Kentucky’s Most Abandoned Places

There’s something eerily alluring about abandoned places that makes us want to explore them, and imagine what it used to be like. There are a lot of abandoned places in Kentucky, ranging from houses to barns to stores and more, but this road trip will take you to some of the most well known abandoned spots in the state. We recommend breaking this trip into a couple of days, and as always, please be safe when exploring the area. Don’t go inside anywhere that doesn’t look safe, and if there are No Trespassing signs, then admire the sight from afar, where it is both legal and safe.

The map is below, but if there are more abandoned places that you know of that aren’t listed below, click here to adjust the map however you like.
