Borrego Springs is known for its night sky. This small village prides itself in being small enough and far enough from the city lights to be able to view the stars every night, making it the perfect environment for those who love stargazing. It’s about 55 miles away from the hustle and bustle of the city life and about 50 miles away from the nearest stoplight! The village of Borrego Springs was designated as California’s first International Dark-Sky Community.

There are lots of things to do during the day as well. Despite there not being any chain stores in the area, there are two shopping centers with retail establishments that are independently owned and operated. There are several restaurants in the area ranging from casual bar food and fast food to sophisticated and fine dining. If you like playing golf, there are several golf courses in the area. Rams Hill Golf Club and The Springs at Borrego Golf Course are two of the most popular ones in the area. Whether you like exploring and hiking during the day or at night, Borrego Springs will not disappoint. For the art enthusiasts, there are several large sculptures spread throughout the Anza-Borrego State Park in Galleta Meadows. Follow a map directing you to the sculptures and take pictures of these exceptional art pieces. Take a tour of the desert or plan a camping trip and visit Coyote Canyon where you’ll see all kinds of desert plants and magnificent views. If you love the outdoors and beautiful views, why not make Borrego Springs your home?
