"In the Heart of the Coachella Valley"
Nestled between Rancho Mirage and Cathedral City, Thousand Palms main entrance can be found by exiting off the Interstate 10 at Ramon and going north.
This is a small industrial community with various business's and family housing building up all around the city. While passing through check your fuel tank level and stop by the Flying J Truck stop for some of the best gas prices in the valley. Also, if you've never had one, be sure and grab a burger at In-N-Out, you'll be glad you did!
Also, explore the incredible geological canvas and steep walled canyons of the San Andreas Fault, where you'll visit a fossil bed and straddle the Fault Line itself! The landscape is vivid testimony to the power of the San Andreas Fault and the geological evolution of millions of years.
Other notable geological wonders litter the area, such as: the San Jacinto & San Felipe Fault Zones, the Borrego, Brawley & Ocotillo Formation, and groundwater surfacing.
