Notably, The SilverRock Resort Classic Course, designed by Arnold Palmer, is the newest addition to the Coachella Valley’s city resident golf program, open to the public and available at discounted rates for residents of La Quinta.

The historic La Quinta Resort is host to and loved by our international visitors and includes old world charm with fine dining, luxury spa and fitness facility and championship golf.

Old Town La Quinta and the bustling Highway 111 corridor is a perfect blend of small town charm with state of the art shopping, dining and entertainment. The city of La Quinta has enjoyed an explosion of growth over the last decade and is a one of the cities we recommend including in your research for your next home in the desert.

The name La Quinta came from early settler’s traveling across country; traveling by horseback or covered wagon, they would stop every 5 days at designated areas along the way. The stop here was referred to as La Quinta, as it was the fifth stop of the journey from Los Angeles – quinta meaning fifth.
