There’s no denying that Arizona’s roads were made for road trips. Our state has long stretches of highway and many of them are often quite empty at any given time of day, which makes travel and exploration both personal and fun. But you know what would make that travel even more exciting? A themed road trip. That is why I put together this:
Now, am I going to guarantee that you will have some kind of horror movie experience during this road trip? No, and I honestly hope you don’t experience that. However, this is a trip through rural parts of Arizona that are abandoned, haunted and dilapidated, so at the very least you are bound to experience some eerie feelings. Plus, a significant portion of this trip is along the Apache Trail (Route 88), which is notorious for its white knuckle drive.
