What is there to do?

Y'all get those boot scootin', gun slingin' sense of adventures at the ready, because we're going back in time to the 1890s with Goldfield Ghost Town!

Kids can actually walk through real life history as you make your way down Main Street, taking in all the incredible historic buildings - and they are real!

You see, kids, back in the 1890's the town of Goldfield had 3 saloons, a boarding house, a general store, the blacksmith shop, a brewery, a meat market and a school house. It was thriving! Then one day, just when it looked like the town would be expanding, something happened to the quality of the ore they were mining, and the town was eventually abandoned. 

Pretty incredible, right?

After several unsuccessful attempts to reopen the mines, the town did come to life again from 1910 on and off until 1926.

But the town HAS come back to life because families just like you are visiting, and allowing it's stories to be told once more!

Tour the historic Mammoth Gold Mine or visit the Goldfield Museum where you can learn all about the history. Kids can even try and search for their own fortunes as they pan for gold, before taking a ride on Arizona's only narrow gauge train.

You'll also get to witness an old west gun fight performed by the famous Goldfield Gunfighters! Yee haw!

Y'all ready to spend a fun filled day, rich in wild west history! Get those boots on, because we're ready!
