"Death Valley Junction" Death Valley Junction by WulfstanTraveller

Death Valley Junction Travel Guide: 7 reviews and 27 photos

This is a tiny resting stop on the road from Death Valley to Las Vegas that goes through Pahrump, NV.

There is almost nothing here but the Amargosa Opera House and Hotel, and its related cafe and store. Otherwise, the community has a couple houses and some abandoned buildings.

However, it is worth a visit, not only to see the derelict old buildings, but to visit the Amargosa Opera House, which one woman by her own zeal operated and maintained for over 40 years, an interesting stop in the middle of the desert. It is also the only place to find any food between Death Valley and Pahrump - and there isn't much of quality in Pahrump.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Interesting spot of culture in the middle of nowhere
  • Cons:Isolated, few services
