Needles offers a wide range of recreational opportunities of all types and for all visitors. Activities range from shopping, sightseeing, golfing, hiking, swimming, fishing, camping, water sports, and recreation. Needles is rich with history. The Mojave Indians lived in the valley long before settlers arrived, and descendants of the Mojave Indians still reside in the area. Needles is also home to El Garces (Hotel/Depot), one of the original “Harvey Houses” (Fred Harvey Santa Fe Hotels) built in 1908. Needles is also famous for resting along the original Route 66. Many of the original buildings and businesses still exist in the “old downtown” area of the City. Travelers will immediately get a sense of the historical feel to Needles when visiting the area. Attractions for the area include the Mystic Maze, the Mojave National Preserve (home to the Kelso Dunes), the Mitchell Caverns, real ghost towns, the Havasu National Wildlife Refuge, and the natural beauty of the Topock Gorge to name just a few. Visitors to Needles will quickly discover a refreshing small, hometown atmosphere and a wide variety of opportunities available in our area. Whatever brings you to our community, Needles can provide you with a wonderful experience. Community events, local attractions, bright blue skies, desert beauty, next to the exciting waters of the Colorado River are here for all to enjoy.
