One of the most interesting and unexpected getaways to be found in Southern California is a day trip exploring the serene beauty of the Salton Sea. Whether or not you’re already familiar with this area, peculiar adventures await.
Get an early start on the day and head east on the 8 for the fastest route to the south end of the Salton Sea. Roughly 115 miles later, near El Centro, head north on 111 through Brawley.
The Sonny Bono Salton Sea Wildlife Refuge, northwest of Calipatria at the junction of Sinclair and Gentry Roads, is the first stop of the day. Aim to get there in the morning (they open at 7 a.m. M-F and 8 a.m. on the weekends) before the day gets too hot. Take the two-mile round trip self-guided trail through the desert and wetland ecosystems and out to the Sea.
