Quaint little semi ghost town in the Mojave desert with some old buildings and interesting art.

Driving from Searchlight, NV on the Joshua Tree Highway, you'll come across the interesting town of Nipton, CA. The old town is small, but charming.  This is a great stop off to explore the sights and grab a quick bite at the Whistlestop Cafe.
