Loved it! Quick on/off the Highway. Lots of fun spray painting and taking pictures. Worth the stop. When we went we were the only ones there, so that was nice.

Lots to see here, not only the VW Beetles but also the deserted gas station and surrounding buildings. Smaller than the Cadillac Ranch but also less people.

It is the quirky, less popular version of the Cadillac Ranch. This is right off the highway and it a good stop to stretch your legs. Bring a garbage bag and help pick up some of the litter left behind.

Fun little stop directly off the highway and Route 66. Good choice if you want to avoid the crowds. Don't forget your spray paint or sharpies. Explore the abandoned buildings next door as well.

Cool, but not as nice as Cadillac Ranch. The Bugs are pretty beaten down and the abandoned buildings made me uneasy.
