Explore Calexico and The Imperial Valley in Your New Car, Truck, or SUV From Robinson Ford
Calexico, CA has some of the most interesting and unique attractions for a city of its size. In fact, there are many larger cities that don’t offer the variety of activities found in and around Calexico. And the best way to enjoy all that Calexico and its corner of the Imperial Valley have to offer is in a new Ford car, truck, or SUV from Robinson Ford in Calexico. Let’s check it out:
So That’s Where It Is
A little less than an hour East of Calexico is the Center of the World. It’s actually not, and not even close, but these enterprising entrepreneurs thought “why not here,” and installed a plaque on the ground. Also on the site is a staircase that was once part of the Eifel Tower. Whether you’re driving to the Center of the Earth or just to San Diego, in a 2018 Ford Fusion equipped with Sync3, you’ll have voice command navigation to guide you as well as integration with your smartphone through Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Visit the Work of a Lifetime
Another stop to make is Salvation Mountain, which is located about an hour-and-a-half North of Calexico. The 50-foot high, 150-foot wide work of art features flowers, trees, waterfalls, suns, bluebirds, and many other fascinating and colorful objects. It’s been constructed over the years out of local adobe clay and donated paint by Leonard King. While the theme is somewhat religious, the scale, colors, and the personal dedication make it worth the trip for anyone. The round trip is 87 miles from Calexico and back. If you owned a 2018 Ford Focus Electric you wouldn’t even use the equivalent of one gallon of gas for the trip, as the 2018 Focus Electric is rated at 96 MPGE.*
Boiling Mudpots And Geothermal Volcanos
There’s a truly fascinating insight into the Earth just north of town at the Salton Sea. While most geographic features are typically considered ancient, the largest lake in California was created over a period of just two years, 1905-1907. Winter runoff caused the Colorado River to flood irrigation canals and settled in a basin more than 200 feet below sea level. Without an outflow, the salinity of the Salton Sea has risen to a point just above the Pacific Ocean. On top of that Salton Sea and the surrounding area sit on top of molten magna only ¾ mile under the surface. This creates an eerie landscape of boiling, bubbling mudpots and geothermal mud volcanos. To travel to this remote landscape, pack up all your adventurers into your 2018 Ford Expedition with room for up to eight passengers and its available Control Trac Four Wheel Drive.
If you want to feel the wind in your hair and the sand in your teeth, saddle-up your 2018 Ford F-150 Raptor and head out to the Imperial Sand Dunes Recreation Area. Better known to locals as Glamis, the name of a small town nearby, it is the largest sand dunes open to off-highway vehicle use in the United States. And despite a reduction in size in several increments in past decades, the area remains enormous: 45 miles by 6 miles or 118,000 acres, all open to off-highway vehicle use. After conquering Baja in near-stock configuration, the Ford F-150 Raptor is ready to take on Glamis with its Terrain Management System with six driver-selectable modes (Normal, Baja, Rock Crawl, Sport, Mud-Sand, Wet-Snow) and Hill Descent Control.
No matter where you travel, whether it’s just around town, within the Imperial Valley, or all across the Southwestern United States, your local Southern California Ford dealer Robinson Ford has the perfect vehicle to fit your needs and your budget. Set an appointment or just stop in to talk with a knowledgeable member of our sales team to test drive the Ford car, truck, or SUV that’s right for you.
