Chloride, Arizona

Venture to the little mining town of Chloride. Founded in 1863, Silver and other minerals were mined here for decades in the late 1800s. Eventually, operations were closed down and it became a ghost town. Though a few residents remained and it's considered the oldest continuously inhabited mining town in the state.

Drive Along Historic Route 66

One of the original highways systems in the US, it since become one of the most famous roads in the country. It served as a primary road for those migrating west and was important in culture and media. It was officially removed from the United States Highway System in 1985 as it had been replaced by other highway segments. Since then, it's been readopted as Historic Route 66 and holds many hidden treasures of the American West.

Oatman, Arizona with Wild Burros

Take in the views of the black mountains that surround this one-time mining tent camp. You'll get to photograph the iconic tumbleweeds and wild burros (donkeys) that freely wander this town.

Western Shootout and Saloon

Have your picture taken next to modern-day cowboys and bandits as you take part in your very own western shootout! There will be time for a drink at the local Saloon before the next town.

Eldorado Canyon Historic Gold Mining Town

With a past of blood and gold, the Eldorado Canyon embodied the true Wild West. This area housed civil war deserters and murderers in its past but the history goes back farther. Like the surrounding regions, this area is rooted in the Ancestral Pueblo peoples. After them, the Paiute and Mojave tribes lived in the region mostly undisturbed before the Spanish.

Photo Stop at Hoover Dam

The Hoover Dam was built between 1931 and 1936, during the Great Depression. You'll get to see this engineering marvel up close, take some photos, and hear its history from your guide.
