Uberblogger, artist, and spikey-hair enthusiast Mark Frauenfelder has got a great write up of five fun places to visit in and around Tarzana.
From the article:
Nike Missile Launch Site
(17500 Mulholland Drive, Encino)
In the 1950s and 1960s, Los Angeles was home to 16 Nike-Ajax supersonic anti-aircraft missile launch sites. You can visit one of them in the hills overlooking the Valley at San Vicente Mountain Park.
(Another fun history of Tarzana was on Offramp last month.)
