Explore Nelson Ghost Town

Details

Added by Jean-Claude Linossi

Funky ghost town with near Lake Mead with many old buildings, cars, buses, and great photo ops.

Driving  from Henderson,  NV, you can take the scenic HWY 165 to the Ghost Town of Nelson. Stop and check out the trading post to learn more about what you're visiting. There are lots of old buildings (some open to the public), old cars, buses, and ruins of an old mine.
