Calico is the tourist-trap ghost town in all of California. Bodie may be well known, but Calico takes the cake on amount of visitors, admission fees, shopping, restaurants, entertainment & tours. Imagine of a Hollywood set with a touch of theme park. Family fun is here! The location is easy to get to - on your way to or from Las Vegas. Weekends can be crowded & best time to visit is morning.
description: Ghost town restored in 1951 by Walter Knott (of Knott's BerryFarm fame ). Later donated to San Bernardino County in 1966.
A living museum complete with a school house, train rides & dramatic re-enactments. Perfect family stop. Lots to see, do & learn about for the kids.
