  • Unique food. Food in the city combines American, Southwest, and South-of-the-Border influences. At Burgers and Beers, they serve clamato, a drink that mixes reconstituted tomato juice concentrate, clam broth and spices. For a beer and clam-juice concoction known as the chavela (chabela), head for Paradise Sports Bar and Cafe. Other unique dishes abound at Antojito Como En Casa (try the enchiladas) and Camacho's Place (look for the "special quesadilla").
  • Bargains abound. The median list price for a home is $166,000, but the median sale price is 11% lower at $148,000. You can find a deal near Adams Avenue and North 6th Street.
  • Shallow and salty sea. El Centro is just a few miles south of a natural wonder known as the Salton Sea. This shallow and salty body of water is about 525 square miles in size and is located on the San Andreas Fault about 220 or so feet below sea level. The Salton Sea State Recreation Area allows camping, boating, hiking, kayaking, and fishing. The few species that can tolerate the salinity include tilapia, corvina, and gulf croaker.
  • Healthy increases. The values of for-sale properties, rent to own homes, and real estate not on the market have increased by 17% over the past year. Values are projected to go up by almost 12% in the coming year, so start searching areas near Wensley Avenue and South 24th Street for deals.
  • Enjoying aircraft. Because the Blue Angeles winter at the Navy Air Facility El Centro, they hold their first air show here every year. Aside from their aerial acrobatics, this annual event includes entertainment, flight demonstrations, and educational displays of current and historic aircraft. Parking and admission are always free.
  • Great rent to own possibilities. Almost 80% of the real estate in El Centro consists of single-family homes with 1.5% for condos, and 19% for other types, such as apartments. Almost 50% of the residents are renters. This increases the possibility that you'll find some great rent to own houses, especially when you look near Waterman Avenue and Sandalwood Drive.
  • Canal fishing. Despite El Centro being totally inland with no nearby rivers, anglers can still catch catfish and small-striped bass in the irrigation canals and ditches used to water the surrounding farms. The Imperial Valley Desert Fishing Club can give you more information and tell you the best fishing spots in the area. You can also find fish in the Fig Lagoon and the Sperber Reservoir.
