    Big agricultural region. As far as tourism is concerned, its not about the city of Blythe, but the surrounding areas of vast open space. Enough desert to really get lost in. Rich soils, jagged peaks, river ways, desert hiking trails, off roading & minimal trees make this a winter haven for many traveling camper vans and RVers.
