This endearingly hokey Old West attraction is a cluster of pioneer-era buildings amid the ruins of a circa 1881 silver mining town, reconstructed nearly a century later by Walter Knott of Knott's Berry Farm . Admission is cheap, but you’ll pay extra to go gold panning, tour the Maggie Mine, ride a narrow-gauge railway or see the ‘mystery shack.’ Old-timey heritage celebrations include Civil War reenactments and a bluegrass ‘hootenanny.’

Take the Ghost Town Rd exit off I-15; it's about 3.5 miles uphill. There’s also a campground (tent/RV sites with full hookup $30/35).
