During my 1 week trip to South Florida I hoped to visit at least several ghost towns, but I was unpleasantly surprised that, despite there are a lot of places on “uninhabited” list, not much left from the former towns there.
In you drive about 10 miles to the ocean from the Navarro town - where Hwy 1 and Hwy 128 meet you will find the sight of the former Navarro-by-the-sea town. Not much remained nowadays, but you can see the hotel building even from the Hwy1 hill.
Bodega is not a ghost town - it is a small unincorporated community in Sonoma county with about 200 people living in it. Bodega and Bodega Bay are named for discoverer of the bay, Juan Francisco Bodega y Caudra, who first sailed into the harbor in 1775.
This was one of my favorite trips to the unincorporated community. This place is located on the National Parks land and open to public, but secluded enough to keep people from visiting it.
I passed these barns several times on my way for Fort Brag to San Francisco and always was certain this was a private property.
Genoa is listed online as the ghost town. But it is pretty much alive. Founded in 1851, it was the first settlement in what became the Nevada Territory.
