1. Nelson Ghost Town and Eldorado Canyon Gold Mine (45 miles)
If you want to take a look at how life was back in the olden days, then the Nelson Ghost Town, as well as the Eldorado Canyon Gold Mine, is definitely worth a visit. This disused mining town has a ton of historic sights, from rusted cars to crashed airplanes. A tour into the gold mine will also make for an exciting adventure, especially since this was considered to be the richest mine in Nevada and was used for almost 80 years until the start of World War II.
