Shopping Malls May Be Staples Of Society, But These Abandoned Ones Are Terrifying

There are few things more American than the ubiquitous shopping mall. A mall is more than just a collection of shops; it’s often a community gathering center. When a shopping mall closes its doors for the last time, things start to take on a more grim aspect.

Take a look at some of these surreal photographs from abandoned shopping malls across the country. Be sure to check out the Dead Malls Enthusiasts Facebook group for more info on where these places are located.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

I can easily understand how someone could get extremely lost in one of these massive abandoned shopping malls. Can you imagine your local mall going out of business like this? Would you ever want to explore one of these malls?
