Must see · Ghost Town · Historic Site
Bodie State Historic Park takes you on a journey back to the days of Californian Gold Rush. A bustling mining community of nearly 10,000 people in the 1880s, this area was completely abandoned by the mid-20th century. This time-capsule-like slice still has about 100 original buildings. If you look through the windows, you'll see that the interiors are also intact. Head to the museum to get on one of the tours, or explore on your own. Be aware that the only facilities are a parking lot and restrooms, so bring any snacks and drinks you may want.
