A Mojave Desert city, Barstow is known for its dry weather, sweltering summers, and unique barren but beautiful landscape. Barstow is only 60 miles from San Bernardino and houses critical United States Army centers, bases, and training facilities, giving it plenty of purpose and making it a highly appealing destination for veterans, their families, and the general public.
When the summer heat proves to be too much, visitors to Barstow often find themselves browsing Treasure House Mall, which offers antique, collectible, and thrift shops. Or, if visitors feel up to the challenge, they can spend the day at Pitcher Park playing soccer, desert off roading at Shoot Spot, or hiking the Rainbow Basin Natural Area, which connects via running trails to the Owl Canyon Campground where visitors can park an RV or pitch a tent, or simply spend the day relaxing. Another great entertainment option in Barstow is museum hopping -- that is, checking out the city’s various museums which include the Route 66 Mother Road Museum, the Western America Railroad Museum, and the Mojave River Valley Museum. Those with a creative flair can take an art class with Painter’s Palette Artist’s Workshop, and guests who are one with water can enjoy a day spent at the Henderson Pool.
