Abandoned Places In Arizona
March 27, 2020
What is the most famous abandoned place in Arizona?
Arizona is known for its eerie desert landscapes, many of which are abandoned and left to the ravages of time, but perhaps some of the most famous abandoned places in Arizona are found in and around its now-defunct cities. Ghost towns, if you will. From the Twin Arrows trading post to the empty jailhouse in Salt River Canyon or the vacant dog track in Black Canyon City, there are all sorts of places rife with eerie inspiration. Visit the Tumacacori Mission ruins, if you have the chance, or visit Trotting Park in Phoenix. There’s no end to creepy places in Arizona, friends. You simply have to look for them.
What is the most haunted place in Arizona?
Arizona’s storied desert towns hold quite a few scary secrets. The Hotel San Carlos in Phoenix is known as a haunted hotel, where a young woman threw herself from the windows to the street below. Guests say they have seen a ghostly young woman wandering the halls, and screaming children have been heard late at night. If you’re willing to take the risk, then you just might want to book a night or two.
Can I go ghost hunting in Arizona?
You can go ghost hunting anywhere if you believe! Arizona hosts a series of ghost tours throughout the state, from the famed Tours of Jerome that walk you through classic haunted spots in the small town to the five tours and ghost hunts hosted by the Old Bisbee Ghost Tour company in Old Bisbee.
