Just 116 miles northwest of Las Vegas on Highway 95, Beatty is The Gateway to Death Valley(TM) National Park, and the perfect base camp for desert rats who want to dune-bug, sandboard, ATV or hike around the dramatic surrounding landscape. Beatty puts you just four miles from the ghost town of Rhyolite, and it’s at the heart of the state’s best wildlife watching.

Birds and wild bands of burros (descendants of animals first brought here by miners in the 1900s) abound. After all that hiking, biking and bird-watching, relax in one of the private bath houses at Bailey’s Hot Springs. You could even satisfy your sweet tooth with candy filled barrels and homemade ice cream at the Death Valley Nut and Candy Co. – the Silver State’s largest candy store. The Beatty Museum will give you an inside look at this area’s rich history. Step inside – and you’ll be stepping into the past.
