  • To begin with don't trust google maps. You are looking to get on the White Sands Missile Range entrance near Socorro. You do want to arrive early. Shoot for sunrise so you can see the entrance. You wi...  more »
  • There is a type of travel called "dark tourism", which refers to visiting sites of tragedy or disaster. The site of the first atomic blast--named for the Trinity test of July, 1945--is one of the very...  more »
  • I'd been wanting to go for several years. The site is only open the first Saturday of April and the first Saturday of October. This year fell on my birthday, so we planned to go. A double-handful of p...  more »

  • Trinity is a beautiful site with so much history. All the workers here are knowledgeable and kind. The site is a unique piece of history that almost anyone will find something enjoyable about it. The only wish is that it was open more than 2 days a year... oh boo. But it is well worth the day. Not to mention in the surrounding areas, there is so many more things to see and enjoy. It is easy to make a weekend of it all.
  • They now have designated parking and a bus shuttle. All at no cost. A great educational trip! It's only open 1st Sat in April & Oct. so plan ahead.
  • Worth the visit to this truly unique historical location! Only twice a year! (Oh, something that they don't mention; no cell service! No texting or calling from the site!)
  • Amazing sense of the history and times - seeing this made it all seem a lot more real, and the history a lot more 'human.' Gets very, very busy. There are vendors selling reasonable food and trinkets - food has little line and is fast, trinkets had a huge line. I would have bought some, but I didn't want to wait.
  • Worth going to at least once. Open to the public two times a year. The first Saturday in April and the last Saturday in October. It's where the first nuclear device was exploded. It's history...Good or bad. It's a place that significantly​ changed human history.
