lodginglodging reservations in Yermo

Historical re-enactments, mini train rides for the kids, restaurants, gift shops could keep you busy in what is Calico ghost town, especially for the tourists. Yermo CA is located in the Mojave desert, along Interstate 15, east of Barstow. Some call it a middle of nowhere desert in Southern California, but in fact it is a major junction for interstate highways and railroad tracks.
