    Slab City is definitely a site to see. While there is a lot of trash and disarray around, there is definitely a sense of community that exists. We were especially surprised to see a music venue, library, internet cafe and art store!

    Check out the post we wrote for tips and photos! Enjoy :)

    There are no laws in this California town on the site of an old World War II Marine barracks in the desert near the Salton Sea. You know you’ve arrived when you see Salvation Mountain, a large installation by artist Leonard Knight. While there’s no running water, the town does have an open-air nightclub called the Range, run by a resident and with performances by local musicians on Saturday nights. The town attracts a mixed crowd of snowbird RV owners and folks really trying to live off the grid.
