Most People Have No Idea This Underwater City In Texas Even Exists

The myth of Atlantis is one that goes back many generations, one that fascinated us to no end as children. But, unfortunately, it’s just that – a myth. What if I told you there was a real-life Atlantis right here in Texas? The tiny West Texas town of Towash was long ago flooded by the Whitney Dam, but some of its foundation remains intact underwater. It really is magical.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

I’m seriously considering getting a scuba diving certification so I can see Towash for myself. What about you? Would you like to see what lurks underneath these waters?
