Borrego Springs Things to Do

  • by desertguy Written Feb 25, 2003

    San Diego Outback Tours offers a variety of guided tours into the desert. You will never find this stuff safely on your own the first time unless you are very experienced and bring your own sturdy off road vehicle with you.

    You find yourself in an oasis in the Anzo-Borrego Desert. The restaurant is surrounded by beautiful palms, pools, flowers, and bungalows. After being in such dessolate surroundings, you find yourself in paradise.

    Favorite Dish: The food is all good. Try the grilled Salmon, Filet Mignon, or roasted Chicken.

Borrego Springs Nightlife

  • by desertguy Written Sep 10, 2002

    There are a few places to enjoy a live band on a Friday or Saturday night, but the best is just to look at the night sky and feel the serenity and beauty all around. This is one of the best places on earth for "Truly Dark Sky". You can easily and clearly see the Milky Way, Shooting Stars and Satellites. WOW!

Borrego Springs Warnings and Dangers

    Don't attempt to rent a four wheel drive vehicle to explore this area on your own.
    All the rental companies exclude off road usage and you could end up in real serious trouble if you get stuck or break down. No one will find you.

    Favorite thing: Borrego Springs is located just two hours from San Diego and Los Angeles.
    In parts of the surrounding area, it is quite possible to feel like you are going where no man (or woman) has gone before. So be sure you get all you need before you get into the desert.
    Hiking, backpacking and exploring are the main activities. Unusually for a state park, camping is allowed without charge anywhere away from the main roads, and entrance to the park is also free.

    Favorite thing: This desert is most colourful in spring and early summer. I took all this pictures in another season, that's why there are no flowers....

    Favorite thing: It is important to know that many plants here are protected by law and may not be cut or dug up. All cacti, yuccas and agaves are protected.
