If you are a MJ fan, then it is worth the trip. Nothing to do except read all of the notes fans have left for MJ. Google the property to see what you are missing but getting your pic at the gate is a must...More

Strange feeling, would love to see the place inside. Quiet surroundings and Los Olivos is more than beautiful. We will return to this amazing place next time we are going to the America.

I was told about Neverland Ranch being down the road, so we drove there this time. It is a great drive out there, but not much to see once there.

It is a nice drive to the Neverland Ranch about 15 Minutes from Solvang with a view of why California is known as the Golden State. However, from the road there is nothing to see except the guard house and gardeners on occasion and the...More

The place is very quiet. I am a MJ fan and I need to say that I have always dreamed to go there. I saw the gate, all the flowers from the fans, the messages and the pictures. It's a good place to see that...More

An interesting experience. The grandeur of the entrance has been simplified and there are momentos stages outside and on the walls. Can't go inside but the guard/staff are happy to let you leave memories or read the thoughts.

As a life long Michael fan this was a dream come true! It may sound silly but I totally still felt him around. All you can see are the gates but its a beautiful memorial to a legend!!!

If you are a MJ fan it is pretty cool to see, even if it is just a gate. You can't see the house or anything on the property so can't spend too much time there. The front gate is all you get and a...More

Would have never gone out of my way to visit this but we were staying in Los Olivos, less than 5 miles away, why not? There's nothing to see except the front gate but you can feel the sadness that has enveloped this place. Maybe...More

No payment needed because all you can do is drive by the front gate and gatehouse. Nothing really to see of the Ranch itself from the road.

You can't go inside, no one lives there. It's for sale, supposedly, so I suppose posing as a buyer would be the only way in!
