An hour away from Palm Springs sits a 38-foot high, 55-foot diameter, dome-shaped "sound chamber" known as The Integratron. Built by an inventor (and UFO enthusiast) named George Van Tessel in the 1970s, his design was based on a combination of Moses' Tabernacle, the writings of Nikola Tesla, and telepathic communications with extraterrestrials.

Anthony Bourdain visited the site earlier this year. Billy Corgan, from the Smashing Pumpkins, is a fan. Thousands of people flock here to hear the mystical sounds and be "rejuvenated." Oh, and if you want, you can rent out the whole place for an overnight visit.
