  • To get there you have to drive on a dirt road, but still pretty simple. Before arriving, you will pass through a Valley desolatissima, which already have that will make you shiver. Arriving at the entrance of the town you will be catapulted immediately into another era. Everything remained as it once was with the undeniable charm of the far west. Turn to the streets finding churches, schools, saloons, motel .... BEAUTIFUL! It seems to be in a movie.

  • Beautiful ghost towns grew up during the time of the gold rush and then completely abandoned. The buildings were, very few compared to those that made up the fabric of the city in its hey days, offer an interesting glimpse of nineteenth-century architecture. At the entrance you can buy a brochure whose buildings are briefly described and the lives of their inhabitants, who can be of assistance during the visit. In addition, at set times the Rangers keep public speeches that narrate the past of this beautiful place and its current management. As in any State or national park, that is, the Rangers are extremely helpful to chat with visitors and give them useful tips to make the most of your visit. Many publications are also available (albeit all in English, of course) on the history and geology of Bodie. Toilet are available next to the car park at the entrance, and a fountain where fill water bottles, but my recommendation is to bring water from outside and bring enough, the face that the shadows are not many. Finally: this is one state park, then will not accept America the Beautiful pass
