Borrego Springs is a very unique and special desert town. For one thing, it is the only village in California that is situated entirely in a state park — Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, to be exact. It is also an excellent place to check out the twinkling stars at night since it is also an official International Dark Sky Community. And please don’t be surprised if you should stumble upon a dinosaur or some other strange creature while driving through Borrego Spring’s Galleta Meadows.

Scattered along this area’s roads are 130 large metal sculptures. Borrego Springs is, in fact, such an interesting town that it was even included on Travel & Leisure’s America’s Coolest Desert Town’s list. This little town, which is located in San Diego County, is also a popular destination for “snow” birds who flock to Borrego Springs during the winter.
