It is no surprise that some people have a fascination with ghost towns. Well, get your ears and eyes ready to discover a real-life Atlantis ghost town that is in the Lone Star State of Texas.

Yep, there is an underwater city in Texas that seems like a unique place people enjoy stories of. This place you may or may not have heard of is located in Old Bluffton, Texas.

Many of the included towns jump out at the casual observer as popular summer-rental spots--the Ozarks' Branson, Missouri, or Arizona's Lake Havasu--it might surprise you to dive deeper into some quality-of-life offerings beyond the beach and vacation homes. You'll likely pick up some knowledge from a wide range of Americana: one of the last remaining 1950s-style drive-ins in the Midwest; a Florida town that started as a Civil War veteran retirement area; an island boasting some of the country's top public schools and wealth-earners right in the middle of a lake between Seattle and Bellevue; and even a California town containing much more than Johnny Cash's prison blues.
