We often think that the most beautiful places to visit are beaches, museums, and wildlife. Ever thought of visiting hidden abandoned buildings? Of course, it doesn’t seem to be attractive. However, if you’re a true urban explorer, there are abandoned places that will give you a memorable experience and a whole lot of fun. One of the places to visit and see some of the world’s most spectacular abandoned buildings is California. Here’s a list of some of the most amazing and beautiful abandoned buildings you must see this year.
J’s Amusement Park
Despite being closed and abandoned, there’s much you can explore at this site. The amusement part was in operation from the 1960s to 2003 when it was closed but everything is still there including a Tilt-A-Whirl, a Mad Mouse roller coaster, and bumper cars. It still serves as a camping site.
Treasure Island Bowling Alley
The Treasure Island Bowling Alley in San Francisco is a man-made island that was used by the American military for years before it was abandoned. The island was used as a location for moving people and machines to the Pacific Theater during the Second World War.
The Bayshore Roundhouse
Initially built to serve as a place for freight engines, the Bayshore Roundhouse was abandoned after being used for more than seven decades. Though the building was ruined by fire in 2001, there’s so much to learn and explore at this place.
The Griffith Park Zoo
If you’re one of those people who love camping out at a horror site, the Griffith Park Zoo would be a great spot. The zoo was opened in 1912 and abandoned in 1966 when the Los Angeles Zoo was opened. It, however, still features a picnic area where you can have fun with your friends and family.
