This Old West town at Paramount Ranch, which is authentic enough to fool a ghost, was forsaken by Hollywood.

Paramount Ranch is a lot of fun. They have regular events there, it's totally beautiful for hiking and dog friendly and the set backdrops are really cool places to take photos.

We visited here when we had an hour to spend, but went back for a hike later in the trip. The movie sets are interesting especially if you like Western-themed movies and shows. The hikes are easy and the views are lovely.

This place is very romantic and quite quaint for a wedding/reception. The fact that it is outdoors in a state park allows for several additions. They Incorporated horses in the transport and pictures. Looked marvelous. The primary cons are that it got really cold at...More

I was on an organized tour which split time between Reagan Library and the Paramount Ranch. Big let down after Reagan Library. Recommend you visit only if you are driving within 15 minutes. Spend 20 minutes max.
