People always ask me, exactly where have you been and what Ghost Towns have you seen. To be honest, it’s kind of a lot. Some women buy pursues, I go to Ghost Towns.  

So, for your pleasure, here is a list of Ghost Towns that I have visited, in no particular order:  

  • South Pass City, Wyoming 
  • Deadwood, South Dakota (it’s more of an actual town, but I really loved the TV show and wanted to see this area for myself!) 
  • Calico, California 
  • Bodie, California 
  • Wickenburg, Arizona 
  • Bannack, Montana 
  • Rhyolite, Nevada 
  • Elmo, Colorado 
  • Ruby, Arizona 
  • Arizona Ghost Town Trail (includes Courtland, Gleeson, Pearce, Arizona) 
  • Virigina City and Nevada City, Montana 
  • Glenrio, New Mexico 

And, because I love making lists, here is the one of places I would like to go in the U.S. As you can tell, most of the ones I visited were in the West, but I would like to see some other Ghost Towns and areas in other parts of the country.

  • Thurmond, West Virginia
