Principal Economic Activities
Tourism is the major contributor to Quartzsite's economy. The retail trade and services sectors benefit from the visitors who reside at the numerous (more than 70) mobile home and trailer parks in the vicinity between October and March. Nine major gem, mineral, and 15 general swapmeeting shows are popular tourist attractions, attracting approximately 1.5 million people annually. A Super 8 motel opened in 2001.
