I'd like to know more about the following cities and CDPs in the Imperial Valley from you people:

Cities
Brawley, Calexico, Calipatria, El Centro, Holtville, Imperial, Westmorland

Census-designated places
Heber, Niland, Ocotillo, Palo Verde, Seeley, Winterhaven

I understand that the IV is primarily agricultural, but what else does it have going for it? What makes each of the IV cities and CDPs unique/different from each other? What's it like in one or each of them?

Any answers are greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!

Really? No one has much knowledge about the cities and CDPs in the IV? There has to be at least someone who has visited one of the areas, or at least traversed through it.

None yet, just that I know that the IV is primarily agricultural, and some of the highest unemployment rates in the nation.

What makes each of the IV cities and CDPs listed unique from each other? What are YOUR experiences of this region?

Well, to start off the IV has a lot of gov't workers (border patrol, state workers, prison, military) and alternative energy (solar fields, geothermal, wind), and also benefits from retail shopping from border-crossing Mexicali residents.

The unemployment rate is misleading as a lot of people claiming unemployment are getting paychecks in Mexicali (while living in the IV). So in this case, the high unemployment rate helps the regional economy by allowing claimants to "double-dip", thus giving them more disposable income than if they weren't counted in the unemployment statistics.

The IV is also heavily hispanic and lacks a "snowbird/retiree" base a la Yuma or the CV.

Are all the cities and CDPs in the IV (El Centro, Niland, Calexico, Seeley, etc.) the exact same all around? No differences whatsoever?
