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 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:
