When? : Winter and
spring is the time to visit this area, summer is very hot.
Due note: The town is one
big gas-station, highway rest-stop with some “tourist attractions” for people
that are traveling between Los Angeles and Las Vegas on I-15.
My thoughts: Not a tourist destination
but compare to other I-15 exits this is colorful pit-stop on the long way to/from
Vegas. I stop here several times mainly because from here you can get into Mojave
National Preserve and drive north to Death Valley National Park.
The few “interesting”
attractions are the large Alien Fresh Jerky, The World's Tallest Thermometer, The
Mad Greek restaurant and few abandon hotels.
If you are
heading from Baker to the north on highway 127 to visit Death Valley (or
driving it south to Baker) than I do recommend reading my blog: Mojave Desert –
