We Dare You To Take This Road Trip To Alaska’s Most Abandoned Places
Alaska’s vibrant past combined with the advances in society has inevitably lead to many structures and entire towns becoming abandoned over the years. Add the fluctuating economy filled with the highest of the highs and the lowest of the lows, and you essentially have an entire state that has gone through the financial ringer. We can’t forget about Alaska’s gruesome and wildly unpredictable weather patterns. Natural disasters alone have attributed directly to entire communities being abandoned in the Last Frontier, many of which were never able to rebound or rebuild.
Although this road trip only graces the surface on the many abandoned places in Alaska, it’s a great start to ease you into the alarming and positively mind-blowing remnants from the past. This lengthy trip takes about 24 hours and covers roughly 1200 miles of terrain, making it best to break up into a few days period. Better yet, take your time and enjoy all the other incredible sights along the way. To view the map with accompanying driving directions, click HERE.
