This Creepy Ghost Town In Arizona Is The Stuff Nightmares Are Made Of
OK, I admit that title is a bit of a stretch—but the place we’re talking about today is still pretty creepy. In a state that receives a record amount of sunshine, it can be difficult to find places particularly scary since the “dark and stormy night” scenarios rarely occur here. However, if there is any place in the state that routinely receives a reputation for being haunted and offering some visitors more than they bargained for during their stay, that location would have to be Jerome.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
So, have you visited Jerome before? What was your experience like? Let me know if you think Jerome should still be considered a ghost town and whether or not it is creepy.
