While it could be interesting found it to be a bit generic...a place for the kids to pan for gold, a gun fight...an old fashioned bar, dining a little like a ball park...once is enough..however we tend to visit once a year....as a tourist once is enough.....as an historic place, should and could give it more information.

Interesting, fun and educational. Lots to do and see for everyone Would suggest a walk through the entire town before deciding on the adventure that suits your style. Food was great athe saloon and bakery goodies were excellent Rest rooms in village need some work and gun fights are only scheduled for weekends, so that was disappointing

I think every year I am in the Phoenix area, I go to Goldfield. I realize it is an artificial ghost town, but I don't know of a better one. It is always fun to walk through. They even have staged gunfights of the West. I rarely buy things at the various souvenir shops, but I do stop in at... More

Nice visit. Food at the Saloon was 'bar food' , which was served quickly and arrived hot. Service was fast, and owner was actively greeting guests. Overall nice atmosphere for a 'fun place' to grab a beer and a burger.

Funny, one week ago, I would have rated Ghost Town 5 stars. Here's what happened 2 days ago. We ride our own horses to Ghost Town at least once EACH week! We tie them to the hitching post and have a snack at the Mammoth Steakhouse. Sometimes the trough has water for our ponies, other times it does not; sometimes... More

Lots of touristy things here. If you have the time to spend and aren't too worried about completing the Apache Trail drive. There is a mine tour (fee) train ride (fee) and shooting gallery (fee) which kiddos might enjoy. The town consists mainly of shops in recreated buildings.

Over on the east side of the Valley, just 4 miles northeast of Apache Junction, you'll find a reconstructed 1890s gold-mining town. Although it's a bit of a tourist trap -- with gift shops, an ice-cream parlor, and the like -- it's also home to Goldfield's Historic Museum, which has interesting exhibits on the history of the area. Of particular... More

Stop in and spend a afternoon or morning. we just stopped as we saw the sign. 2 hours later we had to leave as we had other plans. We only went into 2 stores and were have ice cream cones when the gun fight broke out. Have ear plugs handy if they start shooting !

Goldfield Ghost Town is a very short drive out of Apache Junction, AZ. It is a dusty, but more or less reality, Ghost Town set in the desert near where an old gold mine was reported to be. Local people in period dress and a number of interesting restored buildings and local crafts to purchase.
