City of La Quinta, “Gem of the Desert”

The City of La Quinta is known as “The Gem of the Desert”, and for good reason. La Quinta is one of Coachella Valley’s best kept secrets. It is a treasure trove of natural beauty in Technicolor, and a hot bed of artistic and musical creativity, and universally acclaimed sporting events.


La Quinta is a perfect retirement or vacation home get-away. Few other places on earth offer as much fun, entertainment, natural beauty, and exquisite homes as in La Quinta. And, all in just 36 square miles. Here, there is a dream home and lifestyle for everyone. Houses come in every style, from Traditional Spanish Mission, Tuscan and Mediterranean, to ultra Contemporary.  No matter what your budget, there could be home in La Quinta, just right for you.

Many homes are located behind guarded gates in golf and tennis resort communities. Once in the gates, streets and golf paths are lined with towering palms, brightly colored bougainvilla flowers, and lush green golf courses. The coral granite hues of the rugged, pyramid shaped Santa Rosa and Coral Mountains, serve as a breathtaking backdrop to the neighborhoods, and entire City.

The Robb Report credits La Quinta as the leading golf destination in the United States. La Quinta Resort and Club dating to 1926 is where Frank Capra wrote the screenplay for Lost Horizon. The Tom Fazio-designed course at The Quarry at La Quinta is ranked among the top 100 golf courses in the Country.  The Arnold Palmer Classic Course and SilverRock Golf Resort hosts the annual CareerBuilder Challenge, formerly the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic PGA tournament.

Throughout the high-season, October through May, people from around the world, gather to soak up the warm sun, and other pleasures afforded by La Quinta. Early morning residents and visitors gather at quaint bistros in Old Town La Quinta to sip espresso, sample pastries, and choose what to do next. On any given day, the menu of entertainment possibilities is almost endless. Hiking, biking, swimming, is always an option, but so too, are professional golf, tennis, Empire Club Polo, and high stakes equestrian competition.

By night, things really get fun!  After a scrumptious dinner and drinks, people can bike, Uber, or walk, to some of the world’s biggest, most renown arts and music festivals. Anyone that’s been there will tell you, Coachella Fest, Stage Coach, and La Quinta Arts Festivals are electrifying! Area Casinos, also offer dazzling entertainment, good restaurants, and for a lucky few, a jackpot.
