Most People Have No Idea There’s An Underwater Ghost Town Hiding In Arizona
Like most of us, you probably heard the story of Atlantis as a child. While your innocent mind may have believed it back then, chances are you’ve written it off as nothing more than a tall tale in adulthood. But what if we told you Arizona has its very own sunken city?
The town of Alamo Crossing was completely wiped off the map in 1968 when the entire city was submerged as Lake Alamo was filled. Today, the town sits fully intact and underwater, slowly succumbing to the passing of time and the elements.
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/
