La Quinta

This “gem in the desert” embraces the outdoors and the arts. Spend the day romanticizing and wandering through Old Town, La Quinta’s main street with cobblestone sidewalks, whitewashed adobe walls, and bougainvillea galore. The quaint thoroughfare provides the perfect storybook-like setting for a chill afternoon of shopping and alfresco dining.

Golf remains one of the biggest draws for the outdoor-minded, with several private and public clubs, including the world-famous PGA West, offering multiple links styles and amenities right at the base of the Santa Rosa Mountains.
