The act of exploring a location that has been forgotten or abandoned. This normally refers to abandoned buildings, tunnels or any other structure that society has generally left to decay. Urban Exploring is a friendlier term for "trespassing" because most locations are on private property and often requires breaking and entering.
There is a difference between urban explorers and vandals. Urban Explorers are there to observe and photograph their location. Vandals are there to tag or deface them.
I found a cool abandoned building outside of town. Are you up for some urban exploring?
