During the summer, Quartzsite, Ariz., is nothing out of the ordinary. A dusty little pit stop not far from the boarder of California along I10 where one can get gas on the way to more interesting locations.
But during the winter, thousands of RVers descend upon this unassuming town and vendors arrive from all over to serve them. RV parks that go empty most of the year become full to overflowing and the town swells in a grid of tents and stalls with walkways between, lending a very ‘state fair’ type feel to the place.
At these stalls one can buy everything from clothes to sewer hoses, and homemade honey to solar equipment. Rocks and gems are a big draw and there are several businesses in town that sell them. Other events that run part or all of the winter include swap meets, ATV rallies, arts and craft shows, and of course RV shows.
