Finding new locations in a (kind of) dead place
< on 11/26/2023 8:59 PM >

I have been trying to find a place to explore for a while, using google maps and driving around. However, I just haven’t found anything worthwhile or at all.
Something I’ve been thinking of trying is looking into the history of the area to see if I can find records of old buildings, abandoned projects, or events that might have left places abandoned. Has anyone else tried this, and what did you research to get you started? Any other tips are welcome also.

Social media hashtags. Start generic with your location + urbex and see what comes up, then go from there.

Our local/state historical society has a "most endangered places list" that's basically pure gold. If you're somewhere that's fairly Urbex sparse don't discount draining and spelunking. I don't get out much because the average experience can involve spooky angry homeless people but I've seen some pretty epic mines, ghost towns, and multi- layer subway/utility/storm drain tunnels. Old military stuff is a pretty easy one that some people overlook as well.
