Poppies: Mojave Desert, California
1 of 14
Visitors to the relatively arid Mojave Desert may be surprised to find thick concentrations of California's official flower--the orange fluorescent California poppy--during the spring. The Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve spans an area of 1,745 acres within the desert that are usually covered with poppies and other wildflowers in the spring. The reserve's seven miles of trails are a great way to add some hiking to your spring break plans.

When to Go: February to mid-May
