Quartzsite is a Bird (as in snow) haven, it is a very small town until the birds flock in for winter. It goes from a couple thou to tens of thousands in a few days with old folks from as far as Canada east to Maine and west to Alaska. and about ANY points between. Wheeling is awesome but it is desert and temps soar well into the 100's in spring to fall. You'll wanna find out where the reservation is and stay out of there but it's a good area.
