"Heart of the Coachella Valley"
Palm Desert has become synonymous with desert culture, retail shopping, world-class golf, and first-class resorts. Incorporated in 1973, this thriving desert community strives to continually offer visitors and residents the lifestyle they've come to expect. Some of the many achievements obtained by the city are notable, such as: rated one of the safest cities in Southern California, a steadfast committment to conservation and the environment, friendly-business policies, and tourism amenities galore.
Several famous attractions, entertainment, golf and shopping destinations call Palm Desert home, like, The Living Desert, The McCallum Theatre, Desert Willow Golf Resort, and El Paseo.
With close to one-third of the Coachella Valley's world-class golf courses within the city limits it isn't a mystery why Palm Desert is considered the "The Golf Capital of the World," sporting such tournaments as the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic and the Frank Sinatra Celebrity Invitational.
