The places are split up into 6 different sections. Each of these have sub sections that are a bit more specific. There will be places that borderline on the different areas. I will be expanding these sections as they grow. All suggestions on improvement are welcome. Feel free to post them in the forums.

Abandonded Places

Places that have been abandoned and no longer in use that are worth a visit. Here you will find ruins, ghost towns, abandoned asylums, amusement parks.

Historic Spots

Places that have a historical value that is worth visiting. Anything from bridges to dams to hotels to churches and cemeteries.

Natural Landmarks

Natural made landmarks and places. Forest and national parks, cave, caverns and wildlife habitats.


This is for all the weird stuff out there. Roadside attractions, film locations, curio shops and random rest stops.

Parks and Centers

Here you can find the man made parks and centers. Museums, centers, amusement parks.

Eating places

Here is a collection of out of the ordinary places to eat. Will not find any mainstream places here, more the ma and pa places that are worth checking out.
