Palm Desert California

Palm Desert was incorporated as a city in 1973. Its reputation is multi-faceted. It is a popular vacation destination for tourists desiring world class amenities such as golf and spas. Baby-boomers and their predecessors flock to the region to make their home in order to enjoy the climate, social and cultural offerings and other attractions. It is also home to families and working professionals.

Shopping is enjoyed by young and old. El Paseo is known as one of the premiere shopping districts in the country and is located in Palm Desert. Here one can find  fabulous boutiques and gastronomical delights in any of the fine restaurants located along this terrific street. When not shopping one can attend the world-class entertainment venues offered by the The McCallum Theater for the Performing Arts, attend the Holocaust Memorial, visit Civic Center park, the skate park, and terrific local art galleries.
