Jeep Tours in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, CA

3 of 12

California’s
largest state park lies between San Diego and Coachella and has more than 500
back roads to explore. With winter temps hitting the 80s, open-air jeep tours
are a great way to experience the baked landscape. California Overland (two-hour
tours, from $55)
offers guided excursions that corkscrew up and down the canyon, bypassing
mud caves, big-horn sheep, badlands, and cholla
cactus, with
accompanying hikes to see sacred Kumeyaay
Indian pictographs, dusty
gold-mine towns, and the mysterious Phantom Desert Lights.

Stay: Borrego Springs Resort (from $150) has a heated
pool and surrounding dark skies for stargazing.
