See the Imperial Sand Dunes
California, United States
If you are a Star Wars lover, get to the Imperial Sand Dunes as quickly as possible. This is where scenes from Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi were filmed. These dunes are well-situated for a day trip from Yuma, Arizona or for a stopover on a longer road trip along the popular Route 8. Four wheelers and dirt bikers will be in heaven here, where you can race across sprawling dunes at your leisure, so long as you have a permit. A permit will also allow you to camp under the stars in the middle of sprawling sand mountains.
