Affordable Cathedral City shines as a haven for the arts and restaurant scene. Thanks to a recent Public Arts Initiative, visitors can discover several works on display throughout the city, including the whimsical, mosaic-tiled Fountain of Life statue that proudly claims the heart of downtown. Local talent is featured at the many galleries along Perez Road, in the city’s art and design district; or hunt for one-of-a-kind treasures and vintage furniture finds in the district’s eclectic warehouse-style shops.
Year-round fun unfolds on the main event lawn, adjacent to downtown. See Cathedral City from new heights at the annual Hot Air Balloon Festival or celebrate the culture and cuisine at the Taste of Jalisco Festival. For a relaxing evening, sprawl out on the grass for a free outdoor movie in the park.
