Decades Ago, This Abandoned Arizona Town Used To Be A Christmas Destination

Driving through Arizona, you can find many abandoned places sitting just a stone’s throw from the highway. Ghost towns, vestiges of once thriving businesses, and neglected tourist stops are scattered around the state, slowly being reclaimed by nature. One tourist stop that we’re going to look at today happens to be a former, year-round Christmas destination named after our favorite jolly man in a red suit.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
