Finding new places

Hey sorry if this is a repetitive post but I was wondering what the best way is to find new places to explore around town. I live really close to Richmond Va and it seems like theres alot of people on the boards from the Richmond area. Ive done some "haunted" house explorations in the past with friends and a couple small abandoned buildings but im really interested in more building explorations and draining. Also trying to get into some amateur photography =) Feel free to PM me if anybody wants to meet up or can tell me some cool places to check out on my own! Thanks!

Make some friends,research, or just drive around aimlessly. Thats how i find all of my places. Ive found quite a lot just by driving around different towns.

As for draining, just bike down the bank of a river till you see concrete.
Alternatively, a law has been passed that requires cities to have accurate maps of their drainage systems along with major roads and drain sizes, and although they can be difficult to locate, you should be able to find them on your city's website.

What everyone else said. Plus Google is an excellent tool, and local newspaper archives. I've found a lot of places by going to my city's newspaper website and searching "abandoned." If you stick around long enough and do all the right things you could become a full member and get access to the DB which has a lot of interesting sites in your area.

For factories, drive around during business hours to see if they're operational. There are a lot of factories in Cleveland that look abandoned but aren't. For houses, drive around after dark. Lights=occupied.
