The Mojave River was the first artery bringing Native Americans to the area followed by the American Railroad system. The town soon grew around a railroad depot spurred by the Industrial Revolution. A century later, the automobile paved the way for Route 66, Interstate 40, Interstate 15, Highway 247, and Highway 58.
Whether you’re a native Californian, just passing through, or looking for your next adventure, Barstow has the everyday services you’ll need. From family-owned restaurants and attractions to national chains you know and love, you’ll certainly feel right at home.

Geological formation in the Calico Peaks range is known for its wide variety of colors. Nearby camping at Own Canyon and scenic trails are easily accessible by all vehicles. Originally built in 1911 as a Harvey House hotel and Sante Fe Railroad depot, Casa Del Desierto currently serves as an Amtrak station, event venue, and has two museums.

Barstow is an outdoors lover’s paradise, from the nostalgia of Route 66 and offroading to antique hunting and modern art. Unique landscapes and historic locations offer endless photography and videography opportunities for all skill levels. The rich desert history of this crossroads city awaits.
