New Mexico has a lengthy, turbulent history, which means that it’s full of abandoned buildings, ghost towns, and even ghosts. If you’re seeking some thrills, enjoy being scared, or just want a getaway that’s far from ordinary, check out this creepy road trip.

The loop covers much of southern New Mexico and takes just 14 hours and 16 minutes to drive (not including stops).
