Visit The Oasis at Death Valley this Holiday Season

There’s been a lot of rain in and around Death Valley, California this year, but the fact is The Oasis at Death Valley, as its name implies, is never really dry.   The ancient waters bubble up from the ground and support an entire ecosystem, as well as a winter vacation destination complete with pools averaging 87 degrees, the lowest USGA golf course on earth, cascading gardens and springs, and a stunning date palm grove. And don’t forget the famed bar with views overlooking some of the 3.4 million acres of Death Valley National Park (the largest park in the Lower 48 states) or the Last Kind Words Saloon where aged spirits seem to always be flowing.

Known to the Native Americans, the California 49’ers, and the famed Borax Mules Teams, this true American Oasis evolved into one of the most unique resorts in the world and was the stomping grounds for such Hollywood elites as Marlon Brando, Clark Gable and Carole Lombard,  Ronald Reagan, and the crew and cast from Star Wars.

It’s here, in one of the only sanctioned Dark Skies in the U.S., where you can see the Milky Way with the naked eye. Besides stargazing, outdoor enthusiasts will also find hiking, tennis, cycling, horseback riding, jeep tours, and more.

With the roads open and the national park back up and running, those in the know are booking the fall, winter, and spring seasons in this bragging-rights, must-visit, hot spot.

Relax at the luxurious AAA Four-Diamond The Inn at Death Valley and the family-friendly The Ranch at Death Valley both part of a recent $150 million renaissance at the Oasis at Death Valley. There are also private casitas, and 80 new cottages.

Only two hours from Las Vegas and four hours from Los Angeles, Death Valley is an easy escape from the worried, rushing world.
