Here you can drive to an overlook one vertical mile above the floor of Death Valley. The vistas north and south are amazing. Expect high winds.

Drive to Dante's View and get an awesome view of Death Valley. Almost feels like you have your head in the clouds. Almost on a par with the Grand Canyon for sheer scale.

Worth the 26 mile round trip from the "main" road. Excellent views of the desert landscape, and a reward of nice views overlooking the valley. Not much to do here for kids but "looking" out over the park. While there, some folks hiked / walked to some of the more distant overlooks, but that's not necessary. The day I was... More

Long slow climb but worth the drive. The view was spectacular and pictures were worth the trip. The flowers in the area in March are beautiful

A little bit of a drive, but overall a great spot for a panoramic view of Death Valley. It was very windy when I went there and you have you to be careful, but overall a great place to visit.

Date's View really is where you can "take it all in". However, so as to not write a million reviews, you really should go to Death Valley and spend at least 3 days to get to see/do everything. I couldn't believe how much there was! I only planned on being there for a day and a half on my cross... More

We were there in April, the small flies and nats made me think of the Australian outback. The view was great and it was much cooler than the valley floor. Worth the drive

If you're in Death Valley it really is worth visiting here. The views are spectacular and really shows the scale & splendor of Death Valley. Take the short walk from the carpark to get the most of the views (if the heat allows). It's a fantastic place that totally adds to a Death Valley visit.

Don't be afraid of the steep drive to the top! The view is amazing up there! Parking is ample and wild flowers were everywhere. It's a must see.

Ben Kenobi said "You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy." This spot is the view of Mos Eisley Space Port from the Star Wars Movie - A New Hope. Death Valley has many spots that were used as sets for the Star Wars movies. Watch the movie, then come to this spot. You will be... More
