One of the things I love about driving around California is the presence of actual ghost towns. Driving on Highway 49, on the way to Yosemite, you'll find Chinese Camp. During the mining years of the 1850s, Chinese Camp was home to over 5,000 Chinese miners (as well as Americans and Europeans). The historical landmark is located at the beginning of Main Street and if you turn right and drive down Main Street, several of the historic buildings remain. There is still a town of about 150 people here. So if you enjoy learning more about California's history, I highly recommend it. It's small but interesting and worth a stop.
