We went with 5 kids, ages 8-14. Everyone enjoyed it and a couple hours was enough for us. We walked through town, panned for gold, and took the mine tour. There may have been a show or more activities earlier in the day, but we didn't see that. There are shops, but we didn't spend too much time there. A... More

Even during the summer with most of the attractions limited, we had a great time during our short trip. The mine tour was short, but informative and fun. A lot of recreated buildings and motifs made for an enjoyable visit. The church at the top of the street had beautiful views of Superstition Mountains.

Great place to spend 3-5 hours. Went on the mine tour which was EXCELLENT. Food is a bit pricey but good. Beer is cold. The free show is good. Great for all ages. Took my daughter here years back and even went horseback riding here in the shadows of the Superstition Mountain for here 10th birthday. That was 10 years... More

Spent a few hours with my wife and 4 young girls at the ghost town. Now, it's not really an old ghost town. It's a rebuilt replica, but has a very authentic feel. A lot of fun activities that really captured my kids imagination. Get the combo pass, as it let's you in three attractions for a very fair price.... More

Not knowing what to expect (was it a tourist trap or the real thing) I went ahead and took a gamble on the place. I wanted to find some photographic subjects to practice on and I did not want to fight the crowds. I went out early int he morning, mid-week in the August. The timing worked perfect for me.... More

We really liked all of the attractions we saw - the reptile museum, the train ride, the mystery shack (must do!), bordello museum, and the mine tour. Be sure to take cash though - each exhibit has a small/moderate per person fee, and they don't take cards. There is an ATM on site in case you forget though.

Goldfield is just outside of Phoenix at the foothills of the Superstition Mountains. I always take visitors out here for a fun afternoon. The ice cream is tasty and the town is...unique. A tourist attraction for sure, but a fun one (which is all that matters).
