February 4, 2016 (Borrego Springs)--From a romance-filled Valentine's Day special dinner to an exceptionally beautiful wildflower season just around the corner, there are plenty of reasons to fall in love with La Casa del Zorro Resort in Borrego Springs this month.

Valentine’s Special

On Sunday, February 14, lovebirds are invited to The Butterfield Room for an elegant celebratory dinner in one of the region’s most romantic locations. From 5-9 p.m. treat your special someone to a five-course dinner complete with artfully selected wine pairings and accented with live entertainment from pianist Henry Demichele.  If you prefer to linger post-dinner or plan a long weekend for the occasion, accommodations are still available in plush guest rooms and casitas.

Stop and Smell the Wildflowers 

With more winter weather than California has experienced in years, this upcoming Borrego Springs wildflower season is bound to be particularly spectacular. Although visitors are already reporting sightings of flowers popping up around the desert, everything from pink and lavender Sand Verbena to bold red Spiky Ocotillo will be on the fullest of displays from March until June. Grab your favorite hiking shoes, bring your camera and plan your La Casa del Zorro visit early to ensure you see the best and brightest desert blossoms growing right on our grounds and for miles and miles across the Anza-Borrego Desert.
