Barstow Things to Do: 16 reviews and 48 photos

What can I say...Murals Rock! Murals are so much part of the mystic of our Americana society. They are just beautiful pieces of just a climpse of our history. Barstow stepped up to the plate by being part of this wonderful part of California history and enhancing the charm of their wonderful Main Street. They all are located in the wonderful historic downtown area on Barstow's Main Street. Printer yourself a map from the site below.
