Look for a getaway at a Tiki resort? Or at least a local tiki landmark? Stop and pay a visit to the Tahitian Village. Complete with restaurant and motel, there's no need to drive home late after the Mai Tai's take effect.

The Tahitian Village Hotel is complete with 183 room with a complex adorned by tiki torches, music and nightlife. Several astronauts have stayed at this polynesian themed hotel back in the 1960's since Rockwell International was nearby.


Well, like so many of the other mid-century treasures, the Tahitian Village site is now a wasteland. Leveled during the Summer of 2000, the Southland is now less another tiki treasure.
