Wasco is a real small town. Do not be fooled by the population that it claims;there is around 8,000 people in the prison and perhaps 1,000 more in other correctional institutions.
You can walk through the whole town excluding the outskirts in little time.
Wasco is known for being the city of Roses. In fact if you buy roses in the U.S they probably came from Wasco so take a look around the fields or just pull over and enjoy your surroundings.
Wasco has an annual Rose Parade which gives visitors a chance to buy the freshest roses possible. (Usually in August)check the web site for schedule. www.ci.wasco.ca.us
Go to one of the three park's - Wasco Recreation Ball Park - Cormack Park - Westside Park (Skate Park)
Visit family that may be behind bars, (worry not visitors the prison is far from the town and is surrounded by spiky roses)
There is one K mart and a dollar tree store other then that your best bet is going down town (its really just one street)
