Chuckwalla Valley Raceway sends speedsters zooming around its 2.68-mile track: a banked, high-speed bowl outfitted with elevation changes and 17 total corners that challenge even the most experienced drivers. Visitors climb behind the wheel during a number of varying driving adventures, including half- and full-day programs designed to improve driving skills, and fans stop by to watch cars soar around the track during various racing events every month.
With 55 years of combined riding experience in the area, Academy Rentals has the goods and knowledge to equip riders for adventures such as zooming across the desert on the back of an ATV or gliding across placid waves atop a wakeboard or jet ski. Half- and full-day tours sweep across dunes in California and Mexico, outfitting guests in safety equipment and giving them their pick of dirt bike, ATV, or dune buggy from makers such as Yamaha and Honda. Before guided or self-directed trips, riders of all experience level can learn or reacquaint themselves with driving basics at the hands of knowledgeable instructors who’ve mastered high-speed transportation by sleeping on the underside of a bullet train.
There is an elegant simplicity to the course at Barbara Worth Resort & Country Club. Designed by Lawrence Hughes in 1927, the layout takes what the relatively flat terrain offers, stringing 18 side-by-side holes together, dotting the rough with trees, guarding the fairways with dazzling white sand traps, and capping holes with small, sloped greens. Each green nestles alongside the tee box to the next hole, making the course easy to walk or traverse on a pogo stick.
After their round, golfers can replenish at Caddies Sports Tavern or the Fields Steakhouse, both dining options located within the resort. Guests can also shack up in one of 107 hotel rooms to enjoy a weekend of golf.

Onsite at the Barbara Worth Resort, Caddies Sports Tavern offers a casual alternative to the linens and champagne brunches of the resort's Fields Steakhouse. Along with a wealth of draft beers and a full selection of spirits, a menu of wings, juicy burgers, and cheese-crusted pizza makes mealtime a cinch. The food is delectable and the beer specials are enticing, but for many, Caddies' appeal is in its warm, no-frills atmosphere. Friends meet, cheer, and munch here, the glossy bar top glinting in the light of the myriad flat-screen TVs. These screens loom above large windows, accenting the interior's den-like wood walls with live updates of sporting events and where Waldo currently is.
