 Woke up after a good nights sleep, the Mizpah hotel is a very elegant historical hotel. Hopefully next time we will get the Lady iin Red suite.  

We packed our stuff and went down for some breakfast at the hotel and then left to look around in the town

Tonopah is a cute town, could easily have a spent a day or two here. First on the agenda is their cemetery.It is right next to the clown hotel, you basically have to park in their parking lot to get to it. It is one of the most well kept cemeteries we have seen. Found out that one of the tasks for community service is to keep it clean and they have done a very good job. Another note, every halloween the kids come down and chose a grave, researched about the person and dressed up as them and reanacted how they died. All this information, we recieved from the lady in the clown hotel.

Clown Hotel is very cool. We walked in and asked kindly if we could look around and lady there said yes, we could look as much as we want. She even gave us the key to their suite so we could check that out. She also gave us alot of good info about the hotel and the cemetery next door.

We stopped here out of curiosity and found out that the springs was actually very warm. What we didn't realize is that there is a public pool there as well. Had we known we would've stayed a bit longer.

Stopped by the Little Ale'Inn to get some grub and some goodies. This place was used in the film "Paul" and ended up sitting in the same spot as they did. I had an Alien burger, which was quite good. My honey had herself a shot of Alien Tequila.

After passing the pool we had a walk through the casino and decided to stop by the Red Sushi. Had a roll of sushi there and my honey tried their saki. After that we went outside to get some errands done. Then headed in to the Fremont area. Was considering taking the Zipline but wanted to wait until tomorrow and doing it when it was less crowded.

We walked down to the Container Park, which is a very nice little hideaway from the Las Vegas chaos.

After we was in the Container Park we wandered back to towards the Golden Nugget and tried out one of the slot machines, ended up just going slightly on the negative, end balance was $1.20. Then it was off to bed and get ready for another day in Las Vegas.

End of day 3, goodnight
