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!

Clutter Free with Music Magpie

My hubby is a DVDs and video game hoarders. Like you can imagine we have a large amount of DVDs, video games and Cd's we don't use. We have game consoles from back in the day and if I could get rid of them I would.


We recently moved from Riverside to LA and I found out how much stuff we actually had. Though it was a very short amount of time that I had to pack, I was able to separate all the DVDs games etc in a different box. It makes it difficult for anybody to move or even save space for other things when you have cabinets full of stuff. So I made it a challenge for me to get rid of some of the old stuff and I found the perfect way of doing so!

Guylian Chocolate Review

I was so excited about the opportunity to review Guylian Chocolates! I have a sweet tooth so this made my day when I opened my box filled with delicious goodies. Inside the box I received Chocolate Truffle Boxes in both original and extra dark chocolate. They were enough for me to share with the family. All of the chocolates come with a signature hazelnut filling that is to die for!
