Zzyzx Travel Guide
If you ever find yourself driving from Los Angeles to Las Vegas on the 15 Highway, chances are you're going to come across the strangest exit ever, Zzyzx. We've long thought this was a name just for the heck of it, like, "Hey, let's us the last three letters of the alphabet in any way that we can." And the truth is not far from that.
According to its Wikipedia page, Zzyzx is a former mineral hot springs site developed by Curtis Howe Springer in 1944, who was later arrested for misuse of the land and for violation of food and land laws. Basically, he made up the word Zzyxx and it's pronunciation ("zi-zix.")
Today, the land is part of the California State University and it's home to the Desert Studies Center. And no, there aren't any In-n-Outs at this exit.
