Dawson City Canada

3. Visit the Isolated Dawson City, Canada

Dawson City, Canada

“This gold rush town in the Yukon is sort of the Marfa of Canada, if Marfa were even more isolated and even more weird.”

Strange things done in the midnight sun, reads the first line of William Service’s famous Yukon poem; it’s an apt slogan for Dawson City, Canada. A far-flung place unlike any other, the endless summer daylight shines upon wide, dusty streets, sunken buildings, and the constant churn of the Yukon River.

Salton Sea California

5. Explore the disappearing Salton Sea

Salton Sea, California

It was promised to be a luxurious beach town in the desert, the Palm Springs with water, and the next vacation destination for the rich and famous. Investors, developers, and enthusiastic vacationers poured their heart, soul, and saving’s accounts into making The Salton Sea the next big thing. Now, it is a disappearing and slightly disturbing museum of failed dreams and post-apocalyptic landscapes. This place might not be a sought-after resort town, but it has a charm all its own.
