    on the roads...?: Snakes!

    by mmyerspa Written Oct 21, 2008

    Apparently, the snakes like to warm up on the warm blacktop on cool evenings...generally during the cooler months. I was there in March, and the rangers were telling visitors to watch for snakes in the dark.

    Badwater Basin: Walk along Badwater Basin

    by HasTowelWillTravel Updated May 23, 2008

    When the moon is full, take a walk out along Badwater Basin. Bring a flashlight for sure to help you around. It is the lowest place in North America, and it is eerily quiet and dark. You are miles and miles away from any semblance of civilization, and you can feel it. The stars wheel overhead, as the moon casts a ghostly pallor on the salt flat under your feet. Take a moment to look up at the sky, or just sit on the salt and enjoy the silence. Aside from being broken by a lone car (which is rare at night), there is complete silence. You cannot appreciate that everywhere these days, so it is a treat. Take some pictures of the landscape, but be prepared to have the shutter open a long time (the shot below is 60 seconds), but that is not necessary. It is worth it just to feel the isolation and largeness of the wide world, out on the flat in the dark.

    Corkscrew Saloon: Spoilt for choice!

    by RAINBOWWINGS Written Jul 13, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When you´re in the middle of the desert, theres not a lot of choice for an active nightlife, other than stargazing, or campfire singing, but out at Furnace Creek Ranch theres a great bar/saloon called the Corkscrew where they serve some mighty fine bevvies. Being Europeans, and me living in Spain , we were really surprised to see they had Spanish Freixenet Cava and promptly ordered a mini bottle each. It was served ice cold as it should be and saved the day from the searing heat. A full sized pool table stood in one corner and a giant TV in the other. Friendly staff, good service and a real "feel as if you´re in the desert" kinda welcome!

    Dress Code: Jeans, cowboy hats or just plain casual

    Corkscrew Saloon Cheers!

    Downtown Death Valley: Cruising the bars

    by goingsolo Updated Dec 6, 2004

    Many people wouldn't think that there is nightlife in Death Valley. Then again, some might be surprised that there's a fine dining restaurant as well.

    At the entrance to Furnace Creek Ranch, there's an area known affectionately by local area residents as "downtown Death Valley." Here you will find a restaurant, a separate bar/saloon and the general store. It looked to be a fairly lively scene in the saloon. Well, lively compared to the quiet that descends upon Death Valley once the stars are out. Its not the Vegas Strip, nor is it South Beach, but its something for those who want a night out to compliment their Death Valley experience.

    Dress Code: I doubt there is one.
