    What a fun weekend activity! I didn’t know a ghost town existed near Victorville. Now there’s a reason to head up there on a long, lazy weekend.

    The Ghost Town is actually closer to Barstow. Apparently I went here when I was a kid, but I don’t remember it. I’ve found that I remember things less when there were no photos taken. In any case, I think it’s totally fun – there are mine rides, gold panning, that kind of thing. On non-CIvil War days they do Western type shootouts and such.

    I have never heard of Johnny Rebbs, but we drive to Vegas pretty often (to see my parents) and sometimes it works out that it’s mealtime when we’re passing through Victorville. I’ll have to put it on the list for our next trip out.

    I went to Calico once, I think after seeing a sign for it at the freeway exit? I remember it seemed like we had to drive forever once we got off the freeway and then I was surprised at how many people were at the ghost town. It’s a fun spot, but it’s really a a destination – not somewhere to stop on the way to Vegas.
