Come and visit Goldfield Ghost Town today! Walk down Main Street, explore the many shops and historic buildings. Tour the historic Mammoth Gold Mine and visit the Goldfield Museum. Pan for gold then take 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! Spend a fun filled day, rich in wild west history! Back in the 1890's Goldfield boasted 3 saloons, a boarding house, general store, blacksmith shop, brewery, meat market and a school house. Just when it looked like the town would outgrow Mesa, the vein faulted, the grade of ore dropped and the town died a slow painful death. After several unsuccessful attempts to reopen the mines, the town did come to life again from 1910 on and off until 1926. After more than 115 years, travelers from all over the world still visit this gold mining town located on the historic Apache Trail and enjoy the excitement and grandeur of Arizona's wild west! -Official Description
We had so fun here. There are a lot of things/activities to enjoy. There are gift shops with interesting items, great places to eat and drink, and great scenery- lots of picture taking opportunities. Fun place for kids too. Make sure they get a ride on the train.
We visited here because a friend said it was a good place to get a steak without paying a fortune. The steaks and the paper plates on which they were served were disappointing. We had a bit of fun wandering around, but this place was nothing special for the adults and teens in my party. Perhaps younger children would have enjoyed it more.
We had only planned on spending a few hours here and ended up staying the whole day!! Lots of picture taking opportunities, lots of inexpensive things to do. Even the souvenirs are reasonable!! Highly recommend!!!! We had the best day here on a week long road trip across the country!
Love Goldfield Ghosttown amazing fun & historically place to visit one of my favorite destinations!
