Just across the Colorado River and up the hill from Laughlin, Nevada is the historic town of Oatman, Arizona, a ghost town, that once boasted almost 4,000 people and now supports just a little over 100 people year-round.
Oatman provides not only a number of historic buildings and photograph opportunities, but the sights of burros walking the streets, as well as costumed gunfighters and 1890s style ladies strolling.
In its heyday, from the early 1900s to the 1940s, Oatman and the nearby town of Gold Road were the largest producers of gold in Arizona.
The Drulin Hotel was built in 1902, which did a brisk business to the area miners. This old hotel, now called the Oatman Hotel, is still in operation today.
