Ghost town weekend getaways

St. Elmo, Colo. and Skidoo, Calif.

St. Elmo, Colo. Annabelle Stark, who has been dead for 50 years, is rumored to wander the streets of this abandoned mining town of the 1920s. Her father owned the hotel where Annabelle lived when not staying in a mental institution. Snowmobile riders claim they still see her staring out the window of her room. Contact: Ghosttowns.com

Skidoo, Calif. Joe “Hooch” Simpson was a down-on-his-luck bartender when, in 1908, he shot a banker dead for $20. A mob hung Simpson, but his remains were later dug up, and a local doctor lopped off his head to test him for syphilis. Today, his ghost purportedly wanders through hundreds of nearby abandoned mine shafts. Contact: Ghosttowns.com
