We are happy that recognizes Borrego Springs as one of the top "Tiny Towns" to visit in California.

Here is what they have to say, and we couldn't have said it better ourselves!

"......the spectacular tiny desert town of Borrego Springs, which is entirely surrounded by the most stunning desert park, the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. At more than 600,000 acres, it's California’s largest state park and the state’s only official International Dark Sky Community. It should come as no surprise that dazzling stargazing is what attracts many visitors here.

The Anza-Borrego Desert State Park offers plenty of things to do during daylight, too—the park is filled with dramatic badlands, twisting slot canyons, cool palm oases, lovely desert flora, and fauna. You can hike the parks’ many trails or take a Jeep tour with California Overland. Anza-Borrego also often experiences a marvelous “super-bloom” of desert flowers between late February and April. As breathtaking as the super-bloom season is, though, it draws huge crowds, so if you’re seeking a quieter experience, skip the spring. Another fascinating feature you’ll find sprinkled around this desert town are the enormous, full-size metal sculptures of serpents, dinosaurs, saber-toothed tigers, wild horses, and more. You can find accommodations ranging from simple hotels to four-star resorts such as La Casa Del Zorro.
