Calico Ghost Town

Calico Ghost Town

Calico, the site of California’s largest silver strike and home to 500 mines, is now a ghost town theme park with attractions that include the Calico Odessa Railroad and the Calico Mystery Shack, filled with “amazing feats and confusing sights.” Fill a day panning for gold, riding the rails, browsing the shops, and knocking back sarsaparillas at Lil’s Saloon (mosey in through the swinging wooden doors). On Saturday nights, you might be able to make contact with Calico’s ghosts on a tour through the spooky darkness of the 1880s Maggie Mine.
