Record-breaking heat draws throngs of tourists to Death Valley

Despite scorching temperatures and one recorded death, tourists from all over the world continue to flock to Death Valley, the infamously arid region that straddles the border of Nevada and California. The region, which is the lowest point in North America, attracted hundreds of people from France, Spain, the UK, and other far-flung locales.

The allure of visiting one of the hottest places on Earth seems to outweigh the potential dangers, with visitors from around the world willing to brave the scorching temperatures for the experience.
