This is one of those attractions that you will either love or hate, and I think it depends on your interests and what you expect to get out of your visit. We loved this little ghost town, with its historical roots. I admit it is a little kitschy, but many attractions are. They have a great little saloon there with... More

Some folks seem disgusted by the tacky touristy feel of Goldfield, we thoroughly enjoyed it since that is what we expected. We were there for 4 hours and did the mine tour, the mystery shack, the train ride, saw 2 gun shows, ate lunch and even toured the bordello - we got a family friendly tour with our 2 little... More

Wheel chair accessible in most locations. Some you have to be a little creative. The Candy shop with the home made fudge was awesome. and a... More

I guess there really isn't anything that is undiscovered these days but when I heard "ghost town" I guess I wasn't thinking school buses, kids everywhere and admission to every little thing the town had. You had to pay for the mine, for the bordello, etc. Admission to the town was free so that was good but other than that.... More

This was a very interesting place. We enjoyed walking around the area. Great photo opportunities among the old buildings. They have a train you can take around. Nice shops and ice cream parlor. It's not a huge place but fun to do.

My friend and I went to this place because neither one of us ever been here...The zip line was okay...I expected it to go around the ghost town for some reason, but it turned out it lifts you up then you glide back down this 1000 ft line...it was okay for $10 per person. Went to the saloon for lunch... More
