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

Ghost towns dot the landscape in Nebraska like the random spots on a Dalmation. From the badlands to the lowlands and even just outside some of the bigger cities, through the years entire towns have dried up and disappeared from the Cornhusker State.

The locations are plotted on this Google Map you can easily bookmark and later access to get directions on your phone or print out a full itinerary to take with you.
