Chloride was founded in 1862 with the discovery of silver ore. During its heyday, there were more than 75 mines in operation, and the population reached 2,000 in 1920. Today, there are still a few mines in operation, but Chloride looks elsewhere for prosperity. On the first and third Saturdays of the month, the local vaudeville company puts on two real good old time western plays and the resident "Immortal Gunfighters" shoot it out in Chloride's newest attraction, Cyanide Springs, an old western town, built by hand, by the gunfighters themselves.

Colorado River activities include auto touring, backpacking, biking, bird watching, boating, camping, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, interpretive programs, nature walks, sight seeing, whitewater rafting, wildlife viewing.

Dolan Springs is an unincorporated desert community at the base of Mount Tipton, a 6,900 foot prominence, in the Cerbat Mountains in west central Mohave County. Called the "Gateway to Grand Canyon West" it is located just 35 miles NE of Kingman.

Drive Historic Route 66 - By whatever name, it is probably the most well known highway in the United States, perhaps the world and in the middle of the longest remaining continuous stretch lies Kingman, "Heart of Historic Route 66."

Gold Road Mine - has daily tours of the mine. Beside the regular tour, they also offer the Extended tour and the Extreme Tour which are by reservations only. All three of them are exciting and surprising. You are taken to the portal of the mine which was begun in 1900 by two men, in mining equipment. The mine is lighted and the cross ventilation makes viewing the mine a comfortable 70 degrees. You see working areas from the year 1900 to 1998.

Grand Canyon South Rim - Located entirely in northern Arizona, Grand Canyon National Park encompasses 277 miles of the Colorado River and adjacent uplands and thrills visitors with awesome and awe-inspiring vistas.

Grand Canyon Caverns - Descend by elevator 21 stories into the earth for a guided tour along 45 minutes of paved, lighted trails through 3 million-year-old undersea fossils.

Grand Canyon West Rim - In the remote wilderness of northwestern Arizona you'll find the awesome beauty that is the Grand Canyon West Rim. There are no guard rails or buildings obstructing your view as you gaze over one of the seven wonders of the world.

Hoover Dam - Built during the Depression; thousands of men and their families came to Black Canyon to tame the Colorado River. It took less than 5 years, in a harsh and barren land, to build the largest dam of its time.

Hualapai Mountain Park includes 6 Miles of developed trails and 10 miles of undeveloped trails for your hiking pleasure. Hiking enthusiasts can observe a myriad of plant and animal life and experience breathtaking views from the many rock vistas. The developed trail begins at an elevation of 6314 feet and reaches a height of 8239 feet at Aspen Peak.

Keepers of the Wild is a non-profit sanctuary deeply dedicated to the rescuing of endangered species.

Laughlin, Nevada is a short drive from Kingman and activities include gambling casinos and gaming, tours, hiking, shopping, restuarants, movie theatres, fishing, camping facilities and boating on the Colorado River

Meadview - the only community in Arizona with access to Lake Mead and the Grand Canyon by personal watercraft, graces the easterly end of Lake Mead on an unspoiled plateau swept with Joshua Trees.

Oatman - Named after a woman who was captured and later released by the Mohave Indians, Oatman is still going today. Strike after strike kept Oatman alive, the biggest seems to be the 1915 strike of $14 million. The town had its own paper, the Oatman Miner.

The population of Oatman went from a few hundred to over 3500 within a year which lead to long waits at the restaurants. In 1921, a fire burned much of Oatman, but the town was rebuilt. Mining was somewhat sporadic through the next forty years, and Oatman still survives today.

Oatman is a fun place to visit for adults and children -- an authentic old western town with burros roaming the streets and gunfights staged on weekends. The burros are tame and can be hand fed.

Seligman - Founded in 1886 after the completion of the railroad, it became an important stop along the line. An Arizona Historic Route 66 destination.

The Village of Supai, is located in Havasu Canyon, a southwestern branch of the Grand Canyon, and is accessible only by foot, horseback, or helicopter.

Additional short trips (approx 2+ hours drive) from Kingman include Flagstaff, Sedona, Jerome, and Prescott, Arizona. However, some of these trips would best be enjoyed with an overnight stay to allow additional time for sight-seeing.
