What’s the attraction: Hangtown’s Gold Bug Park & Mine in Placerville, once a working hard-rock gold mine, lets visitors take a stroll through California’s history.

Take a tour with a ghost — or not: Have you ever wondered what a real 49er — the kind that came to California to mine for gold in the 1800s, not the football players — might have to say? Take the self-guided audio tour of Gold Bug Mine for a clue. The ghost of a miner leads visitors step-by-step through the old tunnels, telling stories straight out of the mining camps and sharing the science and hard work behind gold mining.
