Goldfield Ghost Town may be a shadow of its former self but it is still a great place to introduce kids to the Old West. Tour Mammoth Mine. Take a jeep tour. Pan for gold. Ride on a narrow gauge railroad. Horseback ride. Watch a wild west shootout. Visit the small museum. And if you manage expectations right a family trip to this replica 1890 circa gold mining town will yield more than a smile or two.
