Fremont Peak Observatory reviews
While not at the level of the Mt Hamilton observatories, this is a very well designed amateur observatory that is more accessable than Mt Hamilton. more »

Loved the observatory which is open to public on limited number of days across the year. We were able to see many solar planets, distant galaxies, nebulas and star clusters. It was a truly out of the world experience. Hats off to the volunteers who brought their telescopes and were kind enough to explain everything we asked about.
It used to be a really great place to let the kids see the stars and planets but now the lines to use the telescopes is akin to waiting in lines at Disneyland, for only 5 seconds time of viewing through the telescope otherwise ppl behind you in line get annoyed. My kids say they aren't interested in going back for a 5th year because there are just too many people. I think I'll buy a telescope and bring it camping with us and we can look at the planets and stars without the lines. Admittedly it won't be as powerful of a telescope but it will still be pretty neat.
