This Haunting Road Trip Through Missouri Ghost Towns Is One You Won’t Forget

Missouri offers tons of great road trip options, but none offer creepy thrills quite like a jaunt on I-44 to walk through ghost towns where time has utterly stopped. You’ll start in either St. Louis or Springfield, stopping along the way at eight deader-than-dead abandoned spots.
