I think this is what surprised me the most about my trip to Nelson Ghost Town. I was not expecting such beautiful desert views. This place does not disappoint. If you are in Vegas, this is a most worthy day trip.
Just beyond the town of Nelson, you can discover Nelson Ghost Town. This spot is a former Texaco gas station, just north of the Techatticup Mine which is open for tours. The signs at the Ghost Town ask you to check in at the store, but there wasn’t much activity when I visited. Just beyond the store and its artifacts, you can find a plane crash that has been previously used as a movie set. It is a beautiful spot for photos.
