Lots of sites to see and things to do if you decide to hang out in the IPL airport area. Most are perfect for those who enjoy the outdoors. Highlights include:
- The Algodones Dunes- The largest dune field in the U.S. and home to many off-road races.
- El Centro Naval Facility- Winter Home to The Blue Angels
- Mexico is 10 miles away from El Centro
- Cher was born in El Centro
- Imperial has the annual California Mid-Winter Fair & Fiesta, often in February (formerly the Imperial County Fair) which receives over 100,000 visitors.
