Fodor's Review

The only accessible site of its kind in the United States provides a firsthand view of menacing cold war–era Hercules missiles and missile-tracking radar, the country's "last line of defense" against Soviet nuclear bombers. It's worth timing your visit to take the guided tour, whose highlight is a visit to the missile-launching bunker. On the first Saturday of the month the site holds an open house at which some of the docents leading walking tours are Nike veterans who describe their experiences.
