Ten More Unique & Unknown Spots in San Diego County

In my opinion, San Diego is one of the best places to live, not just in the United States, but in the world. San Diego County encompasses all types of terrain from the beach, to the mountains, the desert, and everything else in between; and with its fine weather, all of these features are accessible […]

Forestiere Underground Gardens: Escape the Heat in Fresno by Going Underground

In the vast history of California, there are more than a few people who have an outlandish idea, dedicate their life to it, then create something beautiful that will be seen for decades. I would put Leonard and Salvation Mountain in this camp, along with Nitt Witt Ridge and now the Forestiere Underground Gardens. While the underground […]

Petrified Forest: The World’s Largest Petrified Trees

As one of the two unique spots in Calistoga, with the Old Faithful Geyser, the Petrified Forest is a great visit if you are in the area. I will be the first to admit that I didn’t fully understand petrified trees before my visit to this spot, but after seeing them I can appreciate how unique […]

Hot Creek Geological Site: Boiling Blue Water & Fantastic Sunsets

If you are looking to explore a little bit of Yellowstone on Highway 395, then look no further then Hot Creek Geological Area off Hot Creek Hatchery Road. Only 15 minutes south of Mammoth and right across the road from Convict Lake this is an easy and free spot that you absolutely must visit, especially […]

Davenport Pier: An Abandoned Pier that is a Photographer’s Dream

Thanks to Dan for writing this fun guest post for us! This unique spot is the site of old concrete pier ruins in the small coastal village of Davenport, which now is just a set of concrete pylons that used to hold it up. Davenport is located just North of Santa Cruz, on the northern edge […]

Dapper Cadaver: Hollywood’s Favorite Horror Movie Prop Store

If you are looking for something really weird and fun to do in LA, look no further than this post; however, I have to note that this place is not for those with a queasy stomach or for children. It is stocked to the brim with horror movie props and because of that some of the stuff […]

Bob Baker Marionette Theater in Los Angeles

For as long as I have been coming to LA, I have always wanted to visit this theater. I can honestly say that it is not something I had high hopes for enjoying, but when Atlas Obscura visited I figured I would tag along and see what it entailed. I am glad I did as this place […]

Phantasma Gloria at Randyland in Echo Park

In a small inconspicuous neighborhood in Echo Park sits a beautiful bottle art installation made by one man named Randy. I got the opportunity to take a tour of the spot, but you can see it all from the street so it is always ready to be viewed, here is all the info. Details Only […]

Ranchita Yeti: The California Desert Bigfoot

I am always on the lookout for the stranger parts of California, so when Last Adventurer and I went and explored Anza-Borrego we decided we had to stop at the Ranchita Yeti and inquire about its history. This massive Yeti can be easily seen on the drive to Anza-Borrego on Motezuma-Borrego Highway. History After a […]

Galleta Meadows Metal Sculptures in Borrego Springs

Only in California can a State Park be overrun with massive metal sculptures in the name of art. I am not even beginning to complain though as the Galleta Meadows Sculptures in Anza-Borrego are some of my favorite things to take new adventurers to. There are over 130 and as you are driving around they […]
