Arizona Ghost Towns to Explore when you Play or Live in Arizona

Ghost Towns In Arizona

Take a drive and a hike and explore Arizona Ghosts Towns. There are hundreds to choose from. Starting in Central Arizona from Phoenix many are just 1 to 3 hours away by car.

Gold King Mine Ghost Town

Gold King Mine Ghost Town

Many were former mining sites that were abandoned after their boom years. See this picture of the old Gold King Mine ghost town. Some like Tombstone hung on based on their tourist appeal. Other ghost towns lost prominence after the railroads came through. Still other were set up to support US Army and Calvary posts that were no longer active after there was peace in the Arizona Territory. The old route 66 was once a major east to west thoroughfare. After Interstate 40 was completed, the towns along Route 66 fell into oblivion. Some still hang on.  Other towns were built along the Arizona rivers and creeks. The series of dams throughout the state caused some of these towns to vanish.

The remants of these towns are still available for the explorer to hike, study and take a step back to a time that once was.

Come to Arizona, with the blues skies, warm weather and expore the ghost towns, Grand Canyon, White mountains, red rock country of Sedona, Colorado River, Tombstone, our modern cities, sports teams and universities and of course....the ghost towns.
