Bridgeport Things to Do

  • Old Mono County Jail

    The old Mono County Jail is an interesting small stone building built in 1883 from local stone. It operated as the county jail until 1964.

  • Bodie

    Bodie is a ghost town that is maintained as a state historical park. A huge mineral town for a short while in the late 19th century. Better known for its fiercely cold winters - Mark Twain once spent a season here. The park is very informative and well worth a day.

The way climbs steeply out of the road end at Mono Village on a maintained trail for the first mile and a half, gaining a hanging valley. From where the trail switchbacks away from the...


Bridgeport Restaurants

  • Best pizza and burgers in Bridgeport!

    Rhino's bar and Grill is a great place to have a pizza or burger and wash it down with a beer or two. The bar is stocked with a great selection of top and bottom shelf liquors and has about 9 beers on tap. The food is incredibly inexpensive when compared to the outrageous prices that the other restaurants in Bridgeport charge. The bartenders and...

  • Great place for breakfast!

    The Hays Street Cafe is the only restaurant in town that serves breakfast - and they do a good job at it! Everything on the menu is made from scratch. You get a giant cup of coffee with breakfast that will definately jump start your day. Since it is the only breakfast joint in town you might have to wait a bit for a table. I strongly suggest...

  • Sub sandwiches...Mmmmmm!

    Scott, who works here, makes some of the best sub sandwiches...Thick, loaded and excellently prepared. Be sure to complete the experience by dining at the indoor tables to the left of the sandwich counter.

    Location: 50 miles south of Lake Tahoe, in California, 13 miles east of Highway 395 on Highway 270, which is 6 miles south of Bridgeport near the Nevada border. FYI: Highway 270 is open only sporadically in the winter time and is not paved on the final 3 miles to Bodie. Information: Bodie State Historic Park; P.O. Box 515; Bridgeport, California...

  • With 4WD, take Bodie Creek...

    With 4WD, take Bodie Creek Road from Aurora, Nevada. Flash floods through narrow canyons are always a possibility especially rain storms in the mountains. We didn't have to use 4WD but the road is very bumpy in places.See the old telegraph lines. Stop and smell the flowers. Take only pictures, leave only footprints.

    Stick around for sunset. Or for those not sleep challenged, get up early for sunrise. Colors from pink to red, blue to purple never exhaust nature's color palate to present awesome, beautiful canvases of color.
