Not Only Is This Strange Floating Building Abandoned…It’s Also A McDonalds
In the middle of a frozen, lonely lake sits this strange structure…totally abandoned and most definitely creepy.
What”s weirder than a floating abandoned building? What”s more gross than an abandoned McDonald”s (besides maybe a functioning one)? Why, a floating, abandoned McDonald”s, of course!
There were once two floating McDonald”s locations in existence: one in St. Louis, MO, and this one, currently anchored in the Burrard Inlet in Burnaby, BC, near Vancouver. If you thought the famous dining chain was entirely landlocked, think again.
The barge is pretty accessible to the public. Watch these two friends explore it and eat some fitting snacks.

While the plans to revitalize the McBarge and turn it into the floating dining space of the future await approval, several other proposals were put forth for the interesting but rather unsightly barge. One proposal even included turning it into a homeless shelter, as Vancouver”s temporary housing is notoriously overcrowded. As of now, the fate of the McBarge is uncertain, but it doesn”t appear to be going anywhere, making it a favorite location of explorers and photographers.
