    Pretty cool little museum with antique artifacts. Worth the $1 entrance fee. Nice gift ship too.

    The humans have found one of our crash test dummies and put it on display here. The peanut brittle is to die for.

    Easy way to stretch your legs and take a break. They even let us take our dog on the tour with us.

    This is a classic cheesy, but fun stop. I say it's worth the stop! ;)

    This places closes at 7!! Dumb! If you are on the road and want some soda, snack, or DQ, after 7 it's pointless! The only thing the thing had for us was gas!!

    If you're looking for fireworks that are illegal in California and most states... Keep driving.

    Been going here since I was a child! My favorite stop on our road trip. Get a pancho & some ice cream!

    Gas is $.30 more than Tucson or Lordsburg! And DQ takes 3x longer to get your food out! Plan accordingly and fuel up your vehicle and yourself elsewhere. :/ One good thing: CLEAN restrooms.

    Spend the dollar! It's so worth the tourist experience. I did it ten years ago, and today, on my only two trips cross country on this highway :)

    This is why you road tripped. It is worth the dollar, but not a penny more. :)

    If you're already stopping to use the bathroom, check it out, but don't go out of your way to get here.
