Adventure to Borrego Springs

See the giant metal sculptures In Borrego Springs

Borrego Springs Adventure

Take a one-day motor-coach “edventure” to Borrego Springs from SDSU. The first stop is the historic Santa Ysabel Store, an emporium dating back to 1884. Ten minutes down the road is a docent-led tour of Warner-Carrillo Ranch House, a former stop on the Butterfield Stage Line. The group continues on Banner Grade road to the desert floor of Borrego Springs for a lunch (included) at the legendary Casa Del Zorro resort. Then you’ll visit the life-size metal sculptures of Ricardo Breceda. Before heading back, a final stop at the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park for a short walk. Because of the recent rain, this year offers a spectacular “super bloom.” Motor-coach capacity is 44. $109 per person.
