“silver city is nice”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

We had a hard time finding the place and there was not a whole lot there. I much prefer Calico ghost town. I know that Calico is more of a tourist trap then Silver City, but I think its better maintained.

“Lots of history in a little town in the foothills of the Sierras”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2012

Lots of history is evident in this little recreated town up in the Southern Sierra where early settlers battled nature and unsavory characters to create a wide spread community in what is now the Kern River Valley in Central California. Many Western movies were filmed here. Silver City is said to be haunted by residents who lived here during the past couple of centuries.
