- Authentic Wild West adventure
- Explore genuine Nevada ghost towns
- Take a spin on the iconic Route 66
Departing Sin City every Saturday, this full-day Nevada gift experience takes you behind the scenes of the real Wild West, where you’ll meet modern-day cowboys, see the famous Hoover Dam and Black Mountains, and perhaps even catch sight of a real ghost. You’ll begin at Hoover Dam, one of the great man-made engineering marvels, and behind it, beautiful Lake Mead. Pause for photos and to learn about how this mighty structure was built, before heading on to Chloride, Arizona. The few residents still remaining in this charming little town are happy to talk about its past in silver mining, and you can tour antique shops and local art galleries while taking your lunch.
Travelling along the legendary Route 66, it’s off to the ghost town of Oatman. While ghost towns are those where most of the population have moved elsewhere in search of work, here there is actually supposed to be a real ghost, that of an Irish miner who died behind the hotel. Keep your eyes peeled for the pesky poltergeist as you explore the one-time tent camp. Tumbleweeds drift by, the saloon opens for a drink, and there may even be a shootout between the sheriff and the bandits if you’re lucky. Heading back to Vegas through the beautiful, empty desert landscape, there’s time for one final stop in El Dorado Canyon, a town’s that’s been the backdrop for many a classic Western movie such is its timeless atmosphere.
