Slab City: Where Burning Man lives Full-Time
Slab City is a commune of squatters on an old military base in the Imperial Valley of Southern California. Dusty trailers and make-shift homes cover this sandy neighborhood, complete with a stage and party venue, as seen in the movie "Into the Wild," for Saturday night concerts. Look out for the watering hole, hot springs and pool turned skate board park. Plan for a hotel elsewhere.
