    Interesting, historical, haunting — these abandoned sites do wonders for the imagination. From an in-tact shipwreck on Turks and Caicos to a long-forgotten train station in Detroit and a deserted mountain spot containing delinquent buildings in Chile, these are must-see spots if you're up for a little bit of adventure — and a whole lot of beauty. As they are also mostly off the beaten path, they're solid choices for the traveler who doesn't wish to be labeled a tourist.
