The Camel Farm is a great place to visit, very interesting and only a few miles from the Marine Corps Air Station.  There are over 200 animals and 30 different species of animals, including camels and animals that are exotic and unusual.  You can get a cup full of food to feel the animals and do a self-guided tour, entrance fee is minimal -- $7.00 for adults, $5.00 for seniors and $4.00 for kids age 3 to 12 -- and is open from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM Tuesday through Sunday.  Call before you go because the farm is usually closed during the really hot weather like June, July and August.  Most of the hotels have all of the information.
