    : I'm not putting it down, you just can't put in the same class as real ghost town. And can anyone tell me, after looking at their website - what do civil war re-enactments have to do with Calico, California??????

    :
    : : Give over...
    : : At least it's been restored, can't we just be thankful for that? Heck, if it wasn't restored, who knows what we be left of Calico today? Obviously Laurie appreciates Calico for what it is, and I can relate with her, so lets leave it at that, k?

    : : : Well, I would laugh at those who would laugh at calico. Calico appears to be a fasinating place, and if I could, I would visit it. Ghost Towns that have been restored or even comercialized have just as much to offer a ghost town enthusiast as an abandoned site. More often thatn not, I've found that you can learn allot more from these restored places, as they often present museums, tours, and an abundance of information.
    : : : So please, don't "laugh" at Calico. If you do, then laugh at Cody, South Pass City, Fort Laramie and Fort Bridger, Wyoming. How's about Fort Wilkins, Central and Fayette, Michigan, and even me while youre at it.

Any time you visit a commercial "ghost town" you are seeing what some one has percieved the town to be, and not to mention the intent to seperate you from a little pocket change along the way. Oh well its nice to have cotton candy as you soak up the "old town"
