America’s Lost Cities — Market Mad House

The phrase lost cities conjures up images of jungles, remote locations, and Lara Croft or Indiana Jones fighting bad guys for treasure.

However, you can find lost cities everywhere, even in the United States. Strangely, the United States has several fascinating lost cities. Moreover, you can visit some of those lost cities.

Lost cities are everywhere because all civilizations occasionally abandon cities, even ours. Thus, there are no true lost cities, only abandoned cities.
