  • We went from San Diego for something different to do. It is such an unusual and fun place to visit. They are dog friendly (no leash required) we truly loved it. The staff went out of their way to help...  read more »
  • We stopped here on our way from San Diego to Yuma, AZ. A great view of the windmill valley as well as well as the surrounding hills. We just toured the grounds and the ship but did not go up into the ...  read more »
  • the history on this site before will enhance the true historic value of this area. 
  • This place is awesome and has a really good host. From here you can overlook ALL of Imperial Valley if the sky is clear enough. Apart from being able to go to the top of the tower you can also explore the caves that are set up nearby. There are a few surprising carvings made there and are a must see. Would really recommend in late summer/early winter since in the summer it can get too hot to hike the rock caves.
  • I always pass by the tower but never actually stopped to look. After the steep incline from Ocotillo you'll see the tower on the west-bound side of the freeway. There's a whole lot of cool looking UFO looking things parked out front of the gate that leads to the tower. The staff running the place is super friendly and were very knowledgeable in the history of the area. There is around a 6$ charge to go the top of the tower. However, it's definitely worth it. At sunset the views are AMAZING. The warm shades from sunset complement all the stratified rocks in the desert valley, which used to be an ancient seabed. Not to mention how cool the giant windmills look from afar. West of the tower are some art exhibits that are built into the hillside that are worth a look. (comes free with the tower admission). From there you can work your way up the hill for an even higher viewpoint that rival those from the tower. Dont just pass this place up like I always did. Check it out!
  • This place is a very cool and one of a kind place. Passed it several times on trips and finally stopped and it was worth ever minute and dollar spent there, very inexpensive. Amazing rock sculputures, caves and views from tower r worth a million bucks. Must see for everyone who passes it!!
  • This place is really cool! The view is amazing, and the tower is so unique looking. It was filled with really cool, and funny artifacts. I wish we had more time to walk around, and even go on the hike path they have.
  • Best stop between El Centro and SD. Best collection of bumper stickers. Always stop and say hi to the turkey.
