A great day out for adults and kids alike. There is a restaurant and bar with live country music and the guy we saw was an excellent singer. As Brits we are always told by Americans that they love our history but I can honestly say I love American history and this attraction takes you right back to the goldrush... More

We visited the Goldfield ghost town on our way back from Canyon Lake. We were really excited to stop in for a visit. Unfortunately, it was in the evening and most of the shops were closed, but the restaurant was open and we were greeted kindly by the bar tender and had a few drinks. This place is so cool.... More

Ventured here on a Sunday afternoon, had a good time, most of the people there were very friendly, the singer in the restaurant and enjoyable to listen to and very good. The food prices were a little high, but then it is a tourist place. The mine tour gentleman was funny and enjoyable, he does have a sense of humor.... More

We really liked the feel of the Old west. Loved the train ride. We could see the whole town and the Superstition Mountains. Had lunch on the deck of the Saloon. Awesome views!

We take all our younger visitors to the ghost town. Our favorite activities are the train ride and the ice cream cones

This was a good attraction to learn the history of the Superstitious mountains and gold mining. We did the combo train, mine and mystery shak tour. The mine was interesting, the train was boring and the mystery shak was mind boggling. The kids (10 and 13) were entertained. We had lunch in the Saloon while the locals poured in after... More

Goldfield is the remnants of a real town that once thrived in the Arizona desert. It was an active mining town that, at one time, was larger than the town of Mesa When the gold mine played out the town died, as was the normal process at the time. A group of folks have brought the town back to life... 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
