1. From Las Vegas: Ghost Town Wild West Adventures Day Trip
Discover the Wild West and ghost towns that dot the desert landscape. Choose from a shared or private day-trip departing from Las Vegas and uncover the mysteries of these ghost towns. Your guide picks you up and you head straight out into the desert. First, you'll stop at the Hoover Dam—that exquisite masterpiece of engineering. This enormous dam holds back the mighty Colorado River, and provides power for a huge portion of Las Vegas' bright lights, as well as residents in 4 states. We soon leave modernity behind, and head into the old mining town of Chloride, Arizona. Here you can see a still functioning "ghost town" that has been operating since the 1860s. The 250 residents who call these streets home are very proud of their history, and are happy to chat with you before you enjoy your deli style lunch. After filling your belly, we drive the iconic Route 66 to a small Ghost Town in Oatman, Arizona. There are 150 residents of this small outpost, and 1 poltergeist. Keep your eyes peeled! His name is "Oatie the Ghost" and is believed to be the spirit of William Ray Flour, an Irish miner. There's plenty of natural beauty around to enthrall you. The Black Mountains surround this town and make for some stunning photographs. Maybe catch a cowboy shootout at the local saloon! Before heading home we'll stop for a drink at the local saloon, and then head through the Mojave Desert via the old Gold Ruch town of El Dorado Canyon before returning to the glitz and glamor of Las Vegas.
