Indian Wells

When it comes to tennis in Coachella Valley, nothing can compare. Since 2000, Indian Wells has hosted the BNP Paribas Open tennis tournament, one of the biggest events outside of the Grand Slams, drawing hundreds of thousands of spectators each spring. Watch the pros rally it out in person or follow in their footsteps by signing up for regularly scheduled lessons at the Tennis Garden, held throughout the year.

A mixture of country clubs, private estates, and exclusive hotels and resorts nestled at the base of the Santa Rosa Mountains, Indian Wells lures those looking for a chill, private escape. Tee off on the same fairways President Eisenhower once played.
