Why La Quinta?

FALL IN LOVE WITH THE DESERT.

Season after season, those who visit fall in love with the desert, doing what they hadn’t expected: staying. There is an indefinable feeling of enchantment in the 35 square mile city of La Quinta. Visitors and residents alike feel it, as do all of us who live and work here. Its year-round sunny climate is surpassed only by its stark beauty of desert vistas and mountain panoramas. Perhaps it’s small wonder that the ancient Cahuilla Native Americans, drawn to the area, considered it sacred land.

That same charming allure continued in the city that grew up around a hotel’s neighborhood village and club, the La Quinta Hotel built in 1926. The city, incorporated in 1982, flourishes with some of the world’s finest golf courses, tournaments, events, luxury residential properties and communities.

EMBRACE THE LA QUINTA LIFESTYLE.

When the last round of golf is finished, La Quinta extends the excitement with a sophisticated mix of restaurants, retail and wine bars, plus plenty of other outdoor pursuits. From hiking, biking, tennis, pickleball, hot air ballooning, polo, desert jeep tours, and live music to an international arts and culture scene and performance driving at The BMW Performance Driving School racetrack, it’s all here.

What makes La Quinta even more irresistible are the dynamic, welcoming people: with visionary leadership and committed citizens who love their home to service staff and business owners who help make possible a peerless quality of life. La Quinta is a city of grand juxtapositions, combining charm with tech savvy as well as a storied history with both a 21st century vision and on-trend boutiques and eateries.

BEST PLACE TO LIVE FOR GOLF.

Offering yet more validation, La Quinta was named by Robb Report the “Best Place to Live for Golf,” including of course the La Quinta Resort & Club’s Mountains and Dunes courses, The Citrus Club’s courses, and the legacy of PGA WEST, host of the CareerBuilder Challenge and a PGA tour favorite. With some 20 renowned golf courses, La Quinta is singular.

INSPIRED PLACEMAKING: WALKABLE, LOVABLE AND LIVABLE.

Further, with nearby Old Town La Quinta, a healthy walk from the resort, and La Quinta Resort & Club and beyond, the City continues to implement pedestrian-friendly initiatives. Enhancing safe bicycle riding and walking advances the area’s vitality, encouraging everyone to cultivate a closer connection with their community.

Factor in growing recreation and parks development, inviting public places, family-friendly multigenerational events, museums, international art festivals, and the quaint charm for which La Quinta is known.

Come see for yourself why, now as ever, the love affair with La Quinta goes on.
