The area's merchants and the Blythe Area Chamber of Commerce welcome you to the Palo Verde Valley. Blythe is a small farming community with a town known for strong and lasting friendships. While you're in the Valley, you are invited to sample many fine restaurants. Find Chinese, Thai, Mexican, American, fast food, family dining, steak houses, coffee shops, pizza places and lounges. Many offer special discounts for senior citizens.
If you're looking for a place to spend a few days, weeks or months, there are excellent motels, hotels, mobile home parks and RV resorts. There are several campgrounds situated on the beautiful Colorado River offering fishing, water sports, boating or just relaxing on one of our riverfront beaches or sandbars. The surrounding desert also offers many scenic camping and photographic opportunities and provides great hunting for dove, quail, duck, and geese.
The Palo Verde Valley and the adjacent desert has many historical sites. There are abandoned towns, mines and Native American artifacts and geoglyphs. Many are accessible with the family car. Others require a four-wheel drive vehicle, motorcycle or ATV. Hiking trails abound.
Be sure to take advantage of the Blythe Municipal Golf Course. The 18-hole facility is on the mesa northwest of the city, hosting a magnificent view of the valley, with a great clubhouse, snack bar, and outstanding restaurant.
Whether you're in the Valley for a few hours or spending the entire season, the Blythe Area Chamber of Commerce offers information for everyone on local activities, such as golfing, fishing, hunting, boating, sightseeing, rock hounding or just relaxing.
