What Bert Has To Say About El Centro Metro Area

El Centro is a dry, dusty, agricultural center in the vast Imperial Valley, which is irrigated by the Colorado River. Although the name in Spanish translates to “the center,” El Centro isn’t in the center of very much except for several hundred square miles of flat irrigated agricultural land and surrounding desert. The city is 115 miles east of San Diego and only 12 miles north of the Mexican border.
