Visit the hottest place in North America.

This national park is located in southern California, about 150 miles west of Las Vegas, Nevada. Death Valley National Park is surprisingly full of life despite being the lowest and hottest place in North America. Visit in the spring, and you will find an explosion of wildflowers, including mariposa lilies, desert golds, bear poppies, desert chicory, and desert dandelions. An abundance of wildlife also calls this place home. Look carefully, and you might spot desert tortoise, bighorn sheep, roadrunners, and numerous species of reptiles. Death Valley National Park is a land of extremes, but Death Valley is a wonderful and colorful place despite its name.

Step back in time by visiting any of the park's historical sites, including the Harmony Borax Works, made famous by its "Twenty Mule Team," whose wagons were once used to promote the Borax brand soap. The mineral-rich valley attracted many other prospectors seeking gold, silver, lead, and even zinc. Visitors can still see the remnants of several abandoned mining towns throughout the park. You can drive your RV directly through the heart of the park on Highway 190, but be sure to fuel up before you go; there is no fueling station along the way. Consider coming to Death Valley National Park in the spring to see the vibrant wildflowers in bloom.
