Bonnie Springs Haunted Ranch, Aging Wax Museum

Field review by the editors.

Blue Diamond, Nevada

A tourist attraction since the early 1950s, "an oasis in the desert." Offers horseback riding, restaurants, a mini-train, and Old Nevada Western Town, which has a bank, opera house, schoolhouse, sheriff's office, and cemetery. Even though the town is fake, some of its buildings are said to be haunted (enough to entice ghost hunters for investigative sleepovers). The wax museum has seen better days, but it's great for laughs.

Old Nevada Western Town is home to the Bonnie Springs Outlaws who perform live gunfight shows -- and special hanging shows three times a day!
