    Ghost Town hunting is one of my favorite activities in the west. There are so many abandoned towns with endless stories to tell from times past. Of course, ghost towns aren't just a source of historical curiosity; they can also be the centerpiece of an unforgettable road trip. Many ghost towns are located in close proximity to one another, making it easy to plan a multi-day tour that takes you from one town to the next.
