Pretty Spectacular landmark. You probably wont stop by here but you will see it from the freeway. Its cool to visit when its super hot and the temp is super high. Most people just see it from a far. no fun in that. Come check it out on your way to Alien Jerky

Buy some water, a shirt, hat, commutative coin or one of the original numbered bulbs that was used to light the sign. Have fun!
