8 Reasons Why You’ve Got To Visit This Quintessential Texas Ghost Town
We all have stereotypes of ghost towns in our heads from old western movies – tumbleweeds blowing across the road, abandoned saloons, and not a soul in sight anywhere. This is no more than fantasy, at least in Texas. We do have a ghost town, but it’s anything but empty. Although its population is tiny (we’re talking dozens!), it makes up in spirit what it lacks in size. Here are 8 reasons why you have to visit Terlingua – I promise you, it’s a true Texan experience you’ll never forget.
