"This abandoned old mining town, which has been refurbished as a tourist attraction....." That's how its decribed. That's what it is. Spent a good amount of time here.

A ghost town at the head of the Apache Trail, Goldfield is a fun way to spend of couple of hours. A plus in the summer is that everything worth doing is next to the parking lot - the train ride around the town, the "gold mine" tour and the "mystery shack." For an average of about $15 per person... More

I scheduled a stop at this place because I thought my husband, son (4 year-old), and father would get a kick out of the Old West nostalgia. And I really did want to love it... Pros: The town itself is beautiful! Took tons of pictures and loved the old buildings with the mountains in the background. Also loved learning about... More

We stopped at Goldfield on our way to Tuscon and what an amazing place it is. You step back in time to an original goldmine town of the Old West. We walked around the town in 100 degree heat. We visited the museum which was an insight into the gold mining days and a very interesting insight into people who... More

We stopped here on the way to Tucson. This is a great place to visit, with a lot of History. There's several very cool shops here, and love the old buildings. Well worth the drive!

The Goldfield Ghost Town is wonderful! The vistas that surround it are so beautiful, great for picture taking. Our favorite part was the Saloon. Great place for a cold beer and lunch. The staff at the bar and the local Cowboys made it a great afternoon. So many great old artifacts every where. Love it!

Only had a short time before closing. We did the mine tour which was very educational but not boring. Guide was very knowledgeable. Town itself is worth a stop.

If you are visiting this area, this is a place that you really need to stop. You will feel like you have stepped back in time to the goldmining days of the old west. The town is free to visit, but they have individual attractions that they charge a fee to see or do. One is the train ride, where... More

Lots of activites for the whole family to enjoy. We were there in "off season" so it wasn't crowded, but not everything was open. The employees dressed the part and were very knowledgeable. My 6 year old's favorite activity was "panning for gold."
