Do not park in the Neverland circle drive. Someone came from behind the gate and told me to move. Makes you wonder what's going on back there still....

Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch

Michael Jackson is no longer with us, but his fandom lives on. Located in the outskirts of Los Olivos, Neverland Ranch still attracts visitors from around the world. Even though I'm not a big fan, I couldn't pass up the chance to visit the gates of Michael's former abode. The signs are down, but there was no question we were in the right place.

Cars line the street and fans can be seen milling around the front of the property. Every surface from the stone gate to wooden horses are covered with signatures and tributes to the former star. We found a woman sitting in the grass, writing poetry and another who had traveled from Germany begging to take our picture. The people-watching alone was worth the stop.

The famous fan vigil gates are about a mile from the main house.
