Bodie Ghost Town Gets Spooky This Summer
Traveling through Bodie State Historic Park is always a creepy experience. The once-flourishing gold rush town -- at one point, 10,000 residents called it home -- is now nothing more than a collection of dilapidated structures. As the final sentence of the official park description puts it:
For three nights this year, Bodie celebrates that final category of visitor.
This coming Saturday, June 27th -- as well as July 18th and August 29th -- Bodie State Park will stay open until 10 p.m. as part of the Bodie Ghost Walk and Free Star Stories event. The night gets started at 6 p.m. with a 90-minute Ghost Walk through town, during which you'll learn about Bodie's "most fascinating ghost stories and legends." (This tour costs $35 per person.) At 8 p.m., there's an Exclusive Ghost Mill Tour at the town's 116-year-old Standard Mill. (This costs $20 per person.) If those extra fees are scarier to you than the idea of haunts, the night will also include a free Star Stories talk given by astronomer Dave Hurst at 8:30 p.m.
