The New Jersey Ghost Town That’s Perfect For An Autumn Day Trip

There is something just so fascinating — and a bit spooky — about wandering through a ghost town. Seeing all the abandoned structures is like getting a glimpse back in time and seeing how people used to live in that spot. New Jersey is home to quite a few abandoned ghost towns; not all of them are recommended to the public to explore, but there is one that’s transformed from a ghost town into a living, breathing museum. Waterloo Village, a ghost town with roots in the 19th century, is a perfect autumn day trip in New Jersey.

Schools and groups are encouraged to book educational tours here. Just call ahead! And make sure you check Waterloo Village’s hours before heading off for an impromptu trip.
