Mexicali is one of those border towns that constantly reinvents itself in order to remain a vibrant and vital center of culture and shopping. Mexicali is the capital of Baja State and second in size only to better-known Tijuana to the west. While Tijuana is all about tourism, Mexicali throws in one of the most productive agricultural areas in North America, producing asparagus, onions, lettuce, and tomatoes for the rest of the world. Mexicali vacations offer a surprising range of options for a desert city. And, because of its strong economy, there are many options for hotels in Mexicali while you explore the area.

Shopping is big in Mexicali, with many U.S. residents crossing the border for great deals. Both kids and adults will enjoy the Museo Sol del Nino and a visit to Chinatown. The Spanish influence is seen with the occasional bullfights at the Plaza Calafia. But, if you're looking for a little more of a relaxing vacation there is a professional 18-hole course, Club Campestre, which has held international championships.
