During your visit to Death Valley, make sure you make the hour's drive north from Furnace Creek to Scotty's Castle. In addition to living-history tours, you'll find a nice display of exhibits, books, self-guided tour pamphlets, and displays about the castle's creators, Death Valley Scotty and Albert M. Johnson. Fuel up with sandwiches or souvenirs (there's no gasoline sold here anymore) before heading back out to the park.

Ignore what Fodors are saying about "Fuel up with gasoline" at Scottys Castle you haven't been able to do that for nearly two years. I informed Fodors that this info was incorrect (and possibly dangerous)in October 07 - here what the Death Valley website has to say: "Important Notice: Due to equipment failure, no gasoline is available at Scotty's Castle. The nearest gas is available at Stovepipe Wells (45 miles), Furnace Creek (53 miles), Beatty,
Nevada (60 miles) and Tonopah, Nevada (80 miles)."
