Great place to see what an old west town would look like. Great for kids, was alone but looked like the kids where having a lot of fun there. Good places to get something to eat and drink and wasn't expensive. A lot of shops with anything from stuffed animals to expensive jewelry. Had a shotout in the middle of... More

There are several things to see that would interest the whole family. There are a few attractions here that you can enjoy for a pretty reasonable... More

We only got to explore this town for a little bit but it was pretty cool. They have a lot of little stores for tourists. They also have reenactments in the streets. I think the kids would love it here.I just wish we had more time to explore

Had a nice visit here, very commercialized but a couple good photo ops are available. Free to wander in, so worth a stop.

I was disappointed to see that the town had been "taken over" by commercialization. If you are really into ghost towns I don't think this will be for you. Some of the buildings are newer concrete block buildings covered in old west facade. They were actually building one while we were there and the builder explained the process. There is... More

Typical old west tourist attraction. Very commercial but good for younger children. Teenagers thought it was "lame".

An interesting place to visit. You can walk around and take in the sites and visit some really unique shops, or you can pay to take mine tours, train rides and more. A short ride from Phoenix really lets you see what life was like in the old west mining camps. Free parking and a little walking to take in... More

The Place is expected to be as It is.. a touristic Place.. but It is very funny expecially for children.
