The ghost town of Rhyolite offers something special, an “open air museum” in the middle of the desert. The Manzanar War Relocation Center vividly recalls the internment of more than 10,000 Japanese-Americans during World War II. Bodie ghost town, which can only be reached on a gravel road, is really big; more than 170 buildings are spread on the abandoned area.
Virginia City, a former silver and gold mining town, is protected as a place of historic importance. On the way to Yosemite National Park, you shouldn’t miss Bravo Farms, a colorful mixture of souvenir shop, rest stop and children’s playground. Great old buses and an old King Midget, beautifully arranged food on the streets and a huge car tyre complete our impressions from California and Nevada.
