15 Things To Do In Death Valley

Places You Can Reach on a Prius

Travel locally! Spring break is a great time to travel throughout California. It's not so cold anymore yet it's not hot. This year I'm exploring Death Valley National Park on my Prius. Though I couldn't reach some fun places, I had an amazing experience traveling in Death Valley. If you don't want to rent a 4WD off road high clearance vehicle or don't own one, follow me! We stayed at Pahrump's Saddle West Casino Hotel for 2 nights, and it was the closest place at a great price. Pass to Death Valley park is $30 and valid for the whole week.

You probably heard that Death Valley is the hottest and lowest place in the US. It's one of the largest National Parks in the US with 3.4 million acres of land. No wonder there are so many awesome things to do here. Some day I'll return here on a 4WD car and see sailing stones, Titus Canyon, and Darwin Falls. So, here are 15 things you can reach on a regular city car:


The best view ever! The feeling is just cosmic. You can see the Bad Water Basin and mountains, so beautiful! It's better to come here on the sunrise or sunset, the colors just unbelievable. You can simply enjoy it from the top or go on a small hike around.


This was my favorite canyon, my kids loved it too! It's a one way road drive and reminds me of a "Cars" ride in the Disneyland Adventure Park. So fun with so many unexpected twists and turns. Be careful and drive slow, it's an unpaved road.
