It was really close to Mesa so we decided to venture in. We really ejoyed the old western feel to it. We did the mine, train, and mystery shack tours and we enjoyed all of them. It is really fun to spend a day in the old western style the kids really enjoyed it. It is worth it.

Not really a ghost town but it was a great old western town. Had plenty of shops to look in and lots of things to do. Although some shops were closed because it was "off season", there was still alot of things to see. Well worth the trip.

Goldfield is very interesting but is mostly shopping. The first time I went my husband came along but since then I have gone with friends so we can shop and have lunch. There isn't a lot of historical information. There are some other activities such as the train ride, mine tour and horse back riding.

Know up front, this is a manufactured tourist trap ghost town trying very hard to fool you into believing it's REAL. Everything is constructed to appear 100+ years old. In reality it started in the 1980's when the developer purchased a closed empty mine site NEAR the town of Goldfield. He has 'borrowed the REAL Goldfield's history for his fairy... More

This is a really good day out for the family and one I have visited on numerous occasions. A good place to start is at the train station as you can take a small train ride around the outskirts of Goldfield and learn some of it's history at the same time. It was not an easy life as the miners... More

I honestly had a great time at this little ghost town. I made my way out there because I had a Groupon for the zipline. Before you get too excited about the zipline just know that the sign advertising it says "The World's Safest Zipline" so not for hardcore thrill seekers but still worth every penny of my money. After... More

There were some shops and activities. We walked around to check it out but didn't do any additional activities. We kind of saw it as a money maker. I do think it's more for families but if you have a half hour and nearby why not stop!

Fun place for all. There is an old time fake 'shoot out at high noon', fun for the families with kids. There is a live reptile exhibit, an old train station with rides around the acreage, craftware, saloon with great food, drink and western-cowboy or country music, and a jail you can lean out of for pictures. There is a... More
