I wouldn't travel from very far to see Salton sea, but I think every SoCal people should do the day trip once. It is definitely unique and reminds you that human shouldn't mess with nature.
The dead fish, the smell, the abandoned buildings,... the whole vibe feel lost apocalyptic. I felt like being in the Mad Max movie, especially when we did the slab city stop.
Get there early, spend the day, do it once, no need to go back.
