If you are out in Apache Junction, be sure to get on the Old West highway and check out the town of Goldfield!!! It has a cool saloon that you can sit outside and enjoy the great view of the Superstitions while you are enjoying some cowboy like grub!!!! And some very nice shopping for souvenirs etc. And if you... More

Great photo opportunities. Stop off on your way around the Apache Trial and take in this old mining town. A number of gift shops, places to eat & drink, Pan for gold or take the train ride around the town. Many old pieces of western memorabilia lying around the town make great photo opportunities. A good place to spend an... More

Another blazing hot afternoon in Phoenix, we travelled North East to visit Goldfield. We have visited several similar places throughout the western states and again due to it being "summer" several of the attractions were closed. This did not distract from the overall image and authenticity of Goldfield as it was a great place to visit. We stumbled into the... More

This is a cute ghost town for the family and kids. A little cheesy at times, but cool nonetheless. It's free to just walk around, I suggest doing the mine tour for an extra fee. The little train is also cool for young kids (it goes really slow). My brother and now sister-in-law took their engagement photos there and they... More

Didn't quite know what to expect. Was fun and hokey and a little more commercialized than I expected, but it was a nice ride from civilized Scottsdale and I enjoyed the experience.

Put simply I wouldn't go looking for it. I stumbled across it whilst driving the apache trail and so it was a nice break. But I wouldn't make a special trip to see it.

"This abandoned old mining town, which has been refurbished as a tourist attraction....." That's how its decribed. That's what it is. Spent a good amount of time here. After checking out the place, had a few at the saloon. Watched as some locals rode up on their horses to down a few. Staff were very nice. My brother liked the... More

A ghost town at the head of the Apache Trail, Goldfield is a fun way to spend of couple of hours. A plus in the summer is that everything worth doing is next to the parking lot - the train ride around the town, the "gold mine" tour and the "mystery shack." For an average of about $15 per person... More

I scheduled a stop at this place because I thought my husband, son (4 year-old), and father would get a kick out of the Old West nostalgia. And I really did want to love it... Pros: The town itself is beautiful! Took tons of pictures and loved the old buildings with the mountains in the background. Also loved learning about... More

We stopped at Goldfield on our way to Tuscon and what an amazing place it is. You step back in time to an original goldmine town of the Old West. We walked around the town in 100 degree heat. We visited the museum which was an insight into the gold mining days and a very interesting insight into people who... More
