Goldfield Ghost Town
Just East of Phoenix is a reconstructed 1890’s Wild West Town. The Goldfield Ghost Town is known for its Old West gunfights, museum, and gold-mine tours.

Kids will enjoy the sights, attractions, and atmosphere.
Waterparks are always a family favorite, and Golfland Sunsplash certainly delivers all you’d want for an exciting day under the sun and at the pool. The amusement park is actually broken into two sections – Golfland is home to three mini-golf courses, go-karts, bumper boats, and an arcade, while Sunsplash is home to water slides, lazy rivers, and water playgrounds. There truly is something for everyone here and a visit to Golfland Sunsplash is the perfect way to get the entire family active.
