Creepy Road Trips

by Colleen Clark

Mist rolls across the road. Trees groan in the wind. The clock on the dashboard reads midnight. You check the rearview mirror once, twice, praying the car holds up on this desolate stretch of pavement. Welcome to the dark side of the road trip.

We've mapped out the continent's creepiest crawls, and around the next bend is the ominous solitude of the desert, the dark mysteries of the bayou, and an apocalyptic wasteland of abandoned resorts. Buckle your seatbelt and lock your doors: It's going to be a terrifying ride.
