We Dare You To Take This Road Trip To Texas’ Most Abandoned Places
As somber as abandoned places are, for some strange reason, we can’t stay away from them. We grow sorrowful at the thought of once thriving businesses or schools that are now nothing more than a pile of ruins, but remain fascinated with the possibility that something sinister could be lurking inside. Here’s your opportunity to entertain that dark fantasy and visit 9 of the creepiest abandoned places in Texas. As usual, the Google Map with exact directions from your location can be found here.
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/
