A Trip to Calico Ghost Town



I love a great adventure specially anything that has to do with history. I was able to stop at Calico 3 miles off the famous Peggy Sue's Diner. To get in you have to pay a small fee to get in but it is worth it. Calico Ghost Town is an old mining town that has been around since the late 1800's and produced more than $20 million in silver. Since silver lost its value a long time ago residents moved away leaving only 9 residents in 2000. 



At the entrance their are many shops and restaurants. There are lots of items that were originally used when the town was populated and thanks to Walter Knott the building have been restored, all but 5 that have remained untouched. 



As you walk around you can tell there is a lot of history all around. Not only that but many of the shops still carry items sold at that time period. 


There is also a small train ride that cost $4 per person. And it will take you around the town and mines where there are still remaining of what used to be homes, and working areas. The picture bellow is the view from inside this train ride. If you are heading to Vegas or around the San Bernardino area you should definitely take your family here. I got to purchase a few items myself in a gems and fossils store I purchased some rocks and minerals. I also purchased some dog treats for Nala. What we did not get to do is take a Ghost Tour but maybe next time!
