Explore the Greater Palm Springs Nine Cities
Nestled between the mesmerizing San Jacinto and Santa Rosa mountains and Joshua Tree National Park on either side, the Coachella Valley is like no other place on earth. Some might even say it’s magical. Health-seekers, adventurers, artists, and more have flocked here since the early 1900s in search of inspiration, solitude, and serenity. Here, there’s room to breathe and just be, frolicking among the palm oases, hidden waterfalls, and blooming bougainvillea beneath sun-kissed skies.
While our nine cities — Palm Springs, Desert Hot Springs, Cathedral City, Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert, Indian Wells, La Quinta, Indio, and Coachella — have distinct histories and personalities, all enchant and offer endless ways to chill. Visit the infamous San Andreas Fault and its twisted desert canyons with a sunset Jeep tour. Soak in our healing hot mineral springs, some of the purest in the world. Treat yourself to a blissful spa day at one of our many luxurious resorts and hotels. Tee off at a championship golf course, where the likes of Arnold Palmer, Phil Mickelson, and Tiger Woods have played. Or simply bask in the sun at a secluded poolside retreat. Regardless of where your Greater Palm Springs journey begins, you’re guaranteed to experience that same magic in the air that keeps travelers coming back, time and time again.
