I live in another part of the desert, but I hear a great deal about the various resorts. This one is tops because it is so very clean, friendly, and full of extras. I have joined Jacqueline's yoga classes at The Springs which are perfectly balanced (haha pun ;)--not too difficult for the majority of us middle agers, but also both a great workout and relaxation. In fact, there is a chalkboard and bulletin board by the pool that lists the many, many activities The Springs offers (most at no extra cost), giving guests the option to kick back or better themselves with sessions in everything from yoga to star gazing (Borrego is a designated "dark city" for optimal star viewing.) The Springs is just slightly away from the heart of the town--far enough for a true desert feeling, yet within a mile of some really nice restaurants, shops, and nature centers. When I went to the Farmers' Market on Friday morning I was surprised at how luscious the locally grown produce are, and how reasonable the prices were. If you're into nature treks and presentations, visit the Borrego Springs Nature Center for onging events. When it isn't blazing hot, I love bringing out of towners to walk the outdoor labyrinth behind the Episcopal church--even locals often don't know about it. If you're here for an extended visit and want a break from the desert, cool green hilly towns like Julian and Lake Cuyamaca are within an hour's drive. Lastly, check out the Performing Arts Center in Borrego for a variety of entertainment from light fare to highbrow: plays, poetry, ballet, music, and more. Opps, almost forgot to mention that an arts center is just about to open here and from the look of the sharply designed building, it seems really cutting edge. It's amazing how such a small, quiet town can offer so much. Thus if you want a great place to stay while here, I recommend The Springs highly.
