A remade ghost town with food and souvenir shops. Worth a stop if you are in the area to see the trail. We did a jeep tour. Goldfield got kind of crowded as the day progressed but it wasn't uncomfortably packed. Lots of options for souvenirs that are actually made in Arizona. I hear the mine tour is nice but... More

This was the first ghost town any of us had visited, and we were disappointed. We had pictured a spooky setting with stories about historical happenings in particular buildings, but found it to be a very touristy place with old buildings. There are a few activities on site (a zip line and a train ride), but again, not what we... More

This is a great activity if you like history and the old west, with little cost. Was a nice way to fill up a late afternoon and take some out of town visitors to something different here in PHX. The train ride which circles the town takes about 20 minutes and is around $10 depending on age. There are a... More

My Goldfield Ghost Town experience was sadly just what I expected, a highly commercialized place with its purpose directly set to separate tourists from their money. I have heard good things about trail rides and jeep tours but as far as the town site is concerned, have a walk around but do not expect to get an education in the... More

Must stop by the livery and book a horse ride. Our grandchildren had a great time riding a horse for the first time. They are small and each one had a lead rider for them. I would recommend a 1/2 hour ride for the small ones.

We got there late and missed most of the shops but was still very interesting to see. The Saloon had a couple of actors in period costumes that added to the whole experience, would be nice to go back when all is open.

After reading the reviews here, I was more prepared for a 'touristy' experience than the informative visit that we had! I visited with my two grandkids (10 and 6 yrs. old) who had as good a time as I did. Definitely do the mine tour (try to get Jay as your guide). Jay made our tour so enjoyable with his... More

Just like the title says, this was a fun place to walk around for a few hours. I would skip the mystery shack tour unless you have young children. The mine tour was just ok. They packed us in there so we were all up on strangers and it was hot and smelly. I couldn't see very good and kind... More
