Blythe, California (not)

According to the Desert USA site:  Blythe, California is agriculturally based but heavily influenced by tourism, Blythe is located on the California-Arizona border where Interstate 10 crosses the Colorado River. Blythe’s population more than triples during the winter months with the arrival of visitors seeking relief from their cold climate home states during that season.


In the summer, in spite of extreme high Sonoran Desert temperatures, Blythe is a center for water sports along the Colorado River. Blythe is a small town and the people are very warm and friendly. Blythe’s educational system offers students facilities from pre-school through community college.
