Known as the “Gem of the Desert”, La Quinta, California is in Southern California’s Coachella Valley, just 30 minutes from Palm Springs and 2.5 hours from Greater Los Angeles area. With its small-town friendliness, La Quinta is a peaceful and relaxing community. However, it is also a year-round, multi-recreational and destination resort community enjoyed by visitors and residents alike. La Quinta enjoys low humidity combined with an abundant 350+ days of sunshine annually. In La Quinta the “good life” can be found in abundance. It is a great place to live, work, play, or raise a family.
La Quinta’s real estate developments are also newer than most area cities. In the coming years, it is likely that La Quinta will become the new center of the greater Palm Springs area, as development continues eastward toward the Salton Sea.
Palm Springs and La Quinta are in Southern California's Coachella Valley where approximately 500,000 people reside. This beautiful Desert region, nestled at the foothills of the San Jacinto Mountains, offers daily sunshine and an abundance of shopping, restaurants, sports and cultural activities. Just a little farther away you can enjoy snow sports in Big Bear Mountain and water sports at the Colorado River. Getting to Los Angeles, San Diego and the beaches of Orange County is about a 2 hour drive.
