Abandoned resorts are both haunting and humbling to behold. Massive, cavernous, and sprawling, they once brimmed with life and laughter. Now they stand in eerie silence--a life of solitude they seem ill-suited to.
Occasionally there are places which, through some chain of events, planned or not, come to embody a specific era in American popular culture. The massive vacation resorts of yesteryear are throwbacks to a way of life we seem to have drifted away from over the recent decades. They are relics of a simpler time when driving into the mountains with one's family was the pinnacle of a vacation getaway. These resorts still exist today, though by-and-large they have been left to rot, thrown away by a society that no longer requires them. They are decaying reminders that, not long ago, simply enjoying one another's company was considered a vacation.
Walk the darkened halls and wander the shadowed lobbies of these immense, abandoned resorts, and witness what happens when properties built to entertain thousands are left without a soul to care for, or to care for them.
