Watts Towers

Ever look at something and wonder, why? Hey, me too. Kind of what I thought when I first discovered the Watts Towers existed.

Simon Rodia created this, now LA landmark, on his off time for 33 years. He apparently wasn’t well liked by his neighbors who would let their children vandalize his work. He left his masterpiece and moved away, only to die 10 years later.

They perform tours every half hour. The tours are small groups so make sure to get there early to guarantee a spot. Unfortunately, I did not make it into the tour group but it was still fantastic to see this in person.

There isn’t much around the Watts Towers, but if you’re in the area, I’d definitely recommend checking it out. Thanks for stopping by, I’ll see you guys on my next adventure.
