El Centro Featured Hotels

El Centro ("The Center" in English, formerly, Cabarker) is the county seat of Imperial County, California, United States and the largest city in the Imperial Valley, the region east of San Diego, as well as the east anchor of Southern Border. It is also the largest U.S. city to lie entirely below sea level (- 50 feet).

El Centro is Spanish, and means the center. This name is fitting, because it is the core urban area and principal city of the El Centro Metropolitan Area which encompasses all of Imperial County. El Centro is the center of one of Southern California's most promising new commercial and industrial regions. It is home to retail, transportation, wholesale, and agricultural industries. There are also two international border crossings nearby for commercial and noncommercial vehicles.

The nearby Algodones Dunes, the largest dune field in the US, draws thousands of visitors each year, mainly for off-road driving. The Salton Sea lies 30 miles north of El Centro, but water sport enthusiasts head to the Colorado River, 50 miles to the east near Yuma, Arizona. The El Centro Naval Air Station 10 miles to the west is home to the annual Blue Angels flight maneuvering event. Stark Field is home of a minor league baseball team El Centro Imperials of the Arizona Summer League. Mexico (the border city of Mexicali, Baja California) is 10 miles away, which offers big city amenities like museums, a zoo and a sports convention center.
