Chloride is about an hour and a half's drive from Las Vegas.
US-95 to US-93 and look for the signs.
When we traveled to Chloride (Historic 1860's silver mining town) I had no idea what to expect. It's a kookie little ghost town but the real treat are the murals. Painted in the 1960's by artist Roy Purcell. They are a fabulous example of the artwork of the "Hippie" culture. They are really worth the walk to see them. You cannot get to them by car, its a short hike. The trek is worth it both to see the painting and its just great high dessert terrain.
There is a "general store" that of course has sodas, some groceries, hand made soaps and some nic nacs. The gentleman that was running the store the day we stopped in is a great resource of what to see and do in the area.
We were there on a Sunday, only the restaurants and general store were open. There were 2 other "antique" "thrift stores" that looked very intriguing but were closed. ;(
Take the short day trip, enjoy the dessert scenery and the wonderful artwork. It is so worth it!
