Blythe Travel Tips

Blythe Vacation Rentals Offer Outdoor Pursuits

On the border of California and Arizona is a town called Blythe, also known as “The City of Outdoors.” Officially in California, Blythe is located about 2 hours from Palm Springs to the west and Phoenix to the east, and sits on the Colorado River.

With Blythe vacation rentals, all the outdoor recreation you crave is at your fingertips. Boat, jet ski, or fish in the Colorado River. Golf one of many local courses. Head out to the desert and search for geodes at Hauser Geode Beds, where you’ll find the best crystallized rocks if you’re willing to dig. Pay a small collector’s fee and pocket quartz crystals, opal eggs, and fire agate at Opal Hill Mine, or hike one of many desert or river trails in the area.

Visit Ancient Desert Mysteries in Blythe

Near the Big Maria Mountains sit giant earth engravings, also known as geoglyphs, open for public viewing. Just a few miles north of most Blythe lodging, these Giant Desert Figures of animals, humans, and shapes were scraped into the desert soil hundreds of years ago, and some span over a hundred feet! Assumed to be the work of early Native Americans, no one really knows exactly why these carvings were created, who made them, or when, but these Blythe intaglios are certainly worth a visit.

Get So Much More with Your Blythe Vacation Rental

Not far away from your Blythe vacation rental are even more choices for fun. Gamble at Bluewater Casino, dance at the Blythe Bluegrass Festival, view nature at Imperial National Wildlife Refuge, or kick it into high gear at the Sand Bowl Off Road Vehicle State Park—a local family favorite. If you take advantage of California desert vacation homes, you know you’ll always have a comfortable and affordable place to rest after each exciting vacation day in “The City of Outdoors.”
