I visit this area along the Colorado River almost every winter. I wouldn't say Blythe totally sucks as written above but the southeastern corner of California (Riverside and Imperial counties) is the poorest area of California with high unemployment. Blythe is sort of a sleepy town with not too much to do. There is some boating and fishing on the river. Farming is probably the biggest industry in the area (Palo Verde Valley) and there are a lot of Hispanic farm laborers living there. Outside of farming and the hotel/restaurant services along I-10, I don't think there are many jobs. I would imagine housing as being cheap by California standards.
