Interstates have long been to blame for the slow death of America’s small towns. Ghost towns have popped up all across the nation near old highways, but you’ll find some of the best forgotten towns along the old Route 66. When traveling down this old highway, you’ll encounter Red Oak II, a re-located ghost town that has slowly come back to life. It might just be the most unusual town in Missouri, and it’s perfect for an Autumn day trip.
