One of the most spectacular views I've seen anywhere in the world, I also think this area has more to offer than the Grand Canyon! It's a great day out if you're in Vegas for a week and bored of gambling... be sure to hire a convertible Mustang for the trip :-)
At Dante's Peak, visitors can get a bird's eye view of Death Valley, nestled between mountains and gleaming white from the salt that contributes to the word "death" in its name. Look out over this broad expanse and realize how formidable this region was for travelers, since…
The view from this point is spectacular... and it is a lot cooler than in the valley. You can see for miles and the various points of interest is shown on a large map.
Not quite as amazing as Zabriskie Point but worth the drive in to the outlook. You can see the entire Badwater Basin from this point.
A great opportunity for a panoramic view of Death Valley. Situated just above Badwater, you have an excllent view of the entire valley.
