A rather fun afternoon exploring old buildings, watching the train, listening to the character actors, and eating in an old style bar room. Worth the time to go out there and spend a little money having some fun. There is a very interesting General Store with a good selection of candy which makes the grandchildren happy.

We have lived here for 3.5 years but never ventured into the Goldmine Ghost Town until our 6 and 8 year old granddaughters came from MN to visit us. It was a fun couple of hours before our trail ride at the OK Corral. We had lunch, checked out the shops and visited the shooting gallery. We did not do... More

We spent a couple of hours in the Goldfield Ghost Town. The buildings are interesting and have some neat things from days gone by. The live gun fight was fun to watch and the little train ride was a good way to see all around the town with interesting, historical commentary from the 'engineer'. The church at the end of... More

Spotted here while in Apache Junction. Quaint little town with great views of the Superstition Mountains. There are lots of things to do no admission but it's pay as you go so can see most things from the streets and if it interests you, just pay for that ride or attraction. The souvenir shop was very reasonably priced. We were... More

Goldfield is a great place to spend a few hours away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The rides and attractions are entertaining, especially the gunfights. They are performed live - without the annoying recorded programming that some locations use. Parking is free and plentiful and there isn't an admission charge.

Goldfield Ghost Town is a re-constructed gold-mining town (the original decayed and eventually burnt down) near the original gold mining operation at the foot of the picturesque Superstician Mountains in Apache Junction, AZ. It has been convincingly reconstructed and features a saloon (restaurant), Main Street, narrow-gauge railroad, and mine tours, among other things. The kids will love the gunfights and... More

There are two main "ghost town" attractions in the greater Phoenix area, Goldfield and Rawhide. Neither one is an actual ghost town, both have been built recently. Goldfield however is on the site of an actual old ghost town and is in a beautiful Old West natural setting, at the base of the Superstition Mountains. Rawhide is off a major... More

Cute western town with junky trinket shops and a saloon for lunch. BB shooting range and some snakes in a cage. Stop by on the way back from the Dolly Steamboat.

32 miles East of Scottsdale is a "Treasure"! Free parking, Wester entertainment, classy shops, decent food, and beautiful scenery. Why this place is not always crowded surprises me! BTW, there is Arizona's best gift shop, The Blue Nugget, and Diane, is a fantastic assistance for finding inexpensive gifts!
