Morro Bay, US
          

Don't get too excited about Beatty. Not much there. Also, from Beatty it is a bit of a drive to get to Furnace Creek "proper" versus other locations in Death Valley. Beatty provides access across the northern part of Death Valley, allowing continued westbound travel on Highway 190 to Highway 395.

The only plus to staying in Beatty is the VERY close proximity to the small ghost town of Rhyolite, as well as the entrance to Titus Canyon (a lengthy 2+ hour, one-way, semi-4WD slot canyon route into Death Valley that is spectacular, but closed if there is a threat of thunderstorms; check first.)

If you want to see Badwater, Dantes View, Devils Golf Course or other places in Death Valley, I would recommend staying at the Longstreet Inn & Casino, located on Hwy. 373 (off of Hwy. 95 south of Beatty) right at the Nevada/Calif state line just outside of Death Valley. From here, you would go in to Death Valley via Death Valley Junction from the south and see all the major sites in the southern part of the park, continuing up to Hwy. 190 and the sand dunes before exiting the park via Stovepipe Wells out to Hwy. 395. (You could easily access Rhyolite and Titus Canyon from the intersection with Hwy 190, also.) Also, before leaving Longstreet Inn, be sure to drive "across the street" to Ash Meadows and see the pupfish. And Ash Meadows makes for some great sunrise or sunset shots if you are there during that time.

NOTE: I would strongly discourage anyone from trying to get to the Racetrack during a short trip like this. The road is very dangerous and cars are often abandoned after tire problems. Likewise, even with 4WD, I would discourage any off-road travel in Death Valley unless you are prepared for desert travel AND you are caravaning with another vehicle. Titus Canyon is generally OK due to the high-volume of vehicles that go down it.

Speaking of Death Valley (insert shameless plug here... ), I will be running a Nikonians Academy Death Valley workshop November 17-20 of this year, and there are still a few seats left! Click here to see the Death Valley workshop description.
