Just 30 minutes from Palm Springs, 150 miles northeast of San Diego, and 130 miles east of Los Angeles, the City of La Quinta is nestled against the Santa Rosa Mountains in Southern California’s famous Coachella Valley. The peaceful community is home to some of the world’s finest golf including PGA WEST, The Western Home of Golf in America. In addition, now there is SilverRock Resort, home to La Quinta’s first municipal golf course, the Arnold Palmer Classic Course. Courses at both facilities have been honored to host the renowned Bob Hope Classic.
The Palm Springs area’s mild winters, marked by sunny days and low humidity, have for many years attracted visitors who seek the relaxing ambiance of this special place. Little wonder that some of the nation’s finest events have chosen this as their venue. The La Quinta Arts Festival is an internationally acclaimed outdoor exhibition while the BNP Paribas Open Tennis Tournament brings the sports’ greatest players to the Indian Wells Tennis Garden each year. And, young music lovers converge each April at the Empire Polo Grounds for the Coachella Music and Arts Festival.
Although the City of La Quinta has experienced phenomenal growth since its incorporation in 1982, its population is just over 43,000. Visitors and residents alike enjoy the many dining, entertainment and shopping experiences in and around the enchanting Old Town La Quinta. The legendary La Quinta Resort & Club, still a favorite with celebrities, with each expansion has carefully retained the charm of its original casitas.
