"A Desert Oasis"
In 1823 Mexican Explorer Captain Jose Romero stumbled across and later named an ancestral home of a local Native American Cahuilla Tribe which had constructed and cultivated a thriving village around a hand-dug precious watering hole. For many years, Indian Wells was a famous gold prospector destination, stagecoach hub, and soon to be Date epicenter.
Today, this city known for relaxation and indulgence offers visitors and residents a multitude of outstanding world-class amenities. Located within full view of the Santa Rosa Mountains you will find the famed championship Indian Wells Tennis Gardens; home to the Pacific Life Open, The Living Desert & Gardens, The Children's Discovery Museum, Indian Wells Arts Festival, the award-winning Indian Wells Golf Resort, The McCallum Theatre, several world-class resorts, chic retail shopping, amazing spas, exquisite restaurants, hiking, horseback riding, and many other popular activities.
