We Dare You To Take This Road Trip To Washington’s Most Abandoned Places

Washington may be fairly “new” compared to some of our other states, but it’s not without its history. You’ll find ghost towns and abandoned buildings all over this great state, and this road trip was designed to show you some of the most interesting options. These places go from west to east and back, but you’re welcome to take the trip in reverse or add your own stops.

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/
