City of La Quinta

Known as “The Gem of the Desert,” La Quinta is a resort city nestled on the floor of the Coachella Valley, between the cities of Indian Wells and Indio. The city is considered one of the country’s top golfing destinations, with its selection of over 20 world-class golf courses including the legendary PGA West, which hosts the prestigious Desert Classic tournament presented by Workday, formerly known as the CareerBuilder Challenge, Palm Springs Golf Classic, the Bob Hope Desert Classic, the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic, and the Humana Challenge.


The very first residents of the La Quinta area were the Desert Cahuilla Native Americans, one of the few Native American tribes who utilized wells. In the 1800s, the area was a very prominent farming community as its climate was ideal for producing vegetables, sweet corn, exotic dates, seedless grapes, and Bermuda onions.

As the area became easier to access, many residents of nearby Los Angeles frequently made trips to the area. The city of La Quinta was officially incorporated on May 1, 1982, and was named after the La Quinta Resort, which was originally established in 1926.
