Ghost Towns Day Tour


People settled the old west in their search for gold and silver and after the mines played out they left ghost towns for us to explore. This will be a five hour tour through Chloride and Oatman Arizona and El Dorado Canyon in Nevada.

Itinerary

Our day tour begins with a photo stop at Hoover Dam. This iconic dam was constructed during the Great Depression and was dedicated on September 30, 1935 by President Franklin Roosevelt. Then we head to Chloride Arizona, a former mining community that was once the Mojave County seat. There are only about 250 residents now and the ghosts of days past can still be seen on the old streets and in the quaint buildings that still stand. Great for pictures and browsing in the antique shops.

We'll have lunch in Kingman Az before traveling down old Rt. 66 to the former mining town of Oatman Az. We travel through the Black Mountains to this famous old gold rush boom town which was a favorite of actor Clark Gable.

Our last stop is the El Dorado Canyon. We travel down the Veteran's Memorial Highway to our last Ghost Town near Nelson's Landing where steamboats plied the Colorado River. Prospecting and mining was in full swing in the 1850s and the area was rich and gold and silver.

Then It's back to Las Vegas!
