Wild Wild West Ghost Town Day Tour from Las Vegas

Wild Wild West Ghost Town Day Tour from Las Vegas

Experience the Wild Wild West for a full day visit to two ghost towns from Las Vegas.

From Las Vegas, it's a short drive to Hoover Dam. The tour stops for photos of this man-made wonder.

Next, you'll head to the mining town of Chloride, Arizona. This little community has survived the harsh desert environment since the 1860s. Silver and other minerals were mined here for decades. After the mining boom went bust, Chloride nearly became a total ghost town. Today, it's home to about 250 residents who are still very proud of their mining history. Browse the antique shops and chat with the locals before you enjoy lunch. Admire many artistic sculptures in this joyful artist community.

From there, the tour drives along historic Route 66 to the small ghost town of Oatman, Arizona. The present day population is 150 people and 1 poltergeist. He (the poltergeist) goes by the name of "Oatie the Ghost" and is believed to be the spirit of William Ray Flour, an Irish miner who died behind the Oatman hotel. Enjoy views of the Black Mountains that surround the town, photograph the tumbleweeds and the wild burros (donkeys) that freely roam through town. Have your picture taken alongside modern day cowboys and bandits while posing in front of an authentic Route 66 sign and take part in your very own western shoot-out!

There's time for a sarsparilla (or maybe something harder) in the local saloon before heading through the Mojave Desert along the Veterans Memorial Highway. This roads cuts straight through beautifully empty desert landscape - the perfect way to remember the openness of this part of America before returning to the big city lights, glitz & glamour of Las Vegas.
