The scenery in this area is breathtaking. The backdrop of the Superstition Mountains is just beautiful, and there are lots of great options for cool photos and video. The Ghost Town is kind of a hokey tourist trap, but we had fun. To see the town has no admission, but we spent $36 for the 2 of us and took... More

The cowboy shoot out in the streets was corny, but enjoyed by the crowd. The mine tour was interesting and the tour of the brothel was multifaceted. (There were fees for the tours and tips were appreciated.) The gift shop was one of the better ones that I had seen in the area. Lunch at the restaurant was tasty and... More

This is a real tourist are. We took the little train ride and walked around. The one hour we spent there was ok. We are an older couple. This was probably a better stop for young people with kids.

we took two grandchildren and had a great day. The guide at the mine tour was great and we learned a lot. The train ride was slow and difficult to hear. The " goldfield attractions" were somewhat overpriced but kids did enjoy. No charge for entry or parking. Best part of the day was going on a 90 minute jeep... More

This is a real Ghost town. It has the original buildings. Give one the visual perspective of living there a hundred years ago. They have their gun fights every hour, and shops to buy souvenirs and snacks. It was a nice place to just walk around and enjoy the views. I think this would be a great place to take... More

I'm sure on the weekend it's more lively - we went on a weekday. It was fun, bought a few items, took some fun pictures.

Stopped to see the historic town. Watched a western "shootout" between the sheriff and the bad guys. Typical tourist area, lots to buy.

We've taken our grandson (age 10), children of various ages, and friends - there is something for everyone. The gunfight shows every hour are a highlite! Lots of boutique type stores to wander through and purchase everything from a petting cactus to jewelry or artsy knickknacks made from horseshoes. Souvenirs of all kinds. Get your picture taken in the jail... More
