Randsburg: Ghost town with motorcylces.

A short drive from Ridgecrest on Highway 395 will get you to a little ghost town called Randsburg.

Old hillside homes and shops line the little street looking like something out of movie set. Charming restored buildings with windows loaded full of antique glass, posters, and signs provide a walking museum type of street tour.

This town is a great stop for anyone who is off-roading in the surrounding desert areas. It even has OHV parking sections and appeared to be very OHV friendly, with the General Store even having storage areas for "Gear" when guest stop in for a meal. Be warned however, that the Kern County Sheriff is checking registration, so be sure to have current tags before going out riding anywhere.

The General Store has a little menu of some country-style American dishes and nearly everything was priced under $5! They are also the home to old-fashioned fountain drinks and some seriously interesting decor. 

Check out the little gem of a town, they will thank you for coming!
