Life is good in lovely La Quinta: year-round warm weather, world-class golf courses, and plenty of excitement. La Quinta is a friendly, vibrant town and, like our other Coachella Valley vacation rentals, it has easy access to the natural beauty of the desert and mountains that surround this area. Our La Quinta vacation rentals evoke a wonderful oasis-like setting for anyone looking to recharge in Coachella Valley.
This resort city in sunny California sits in the low desert, bordered by the gorgeous Santa Rosa Mountains. Nearby cities include Palm Springs, Joshua Tree, Coachella, and Palm Desert. Located about 130 miles inland from both Los Angeles and San Diego, one of California's most popular beach cities, La Quinta is the perfect place to enjoy a warm Southern California getaway.
If you're a serious golfer, treat yourself to a stay in one of our La Quinta luxury vacation rentals. Ranked as the top golf destination in the U.S., this town offers more than 20 golf courses, including world-class facilities such as the Arnold Palmer Golf Course, SilverRock Resort, and the historic La Quinta Resort, which inspired the city's name.
One of the most charming and frequented locations in the area, Main Street in Old Town La Quinta is the place to embrace the eclectic, lively local spirit. Home to artisans and entrepreneurs, creativity and individuality are the cornerstone of this thriving area. Wander the palm tree-dotted street, which boasts old Spanish-style architecture packed with upscale boutiques, salons, and eateries. Experience wine tastings, art shows, and live musical events, as well as Old Town's flourishing nightlife, and spend some time with fellow travelers and locals alike.
La Quinta boasts opportunities for fun, outdoor activities as well as art, culture, and history to travelers who visit the area. Situated at the base of the Santa Rosa Mountains, just six miles from Old Town, Lake Cahuilla Park offers visitors a break from the hustle and bustle of traveling. Come take a refreshing dip in the swimming pool, work in a hike or a horseback ride on the nearby trails, or drop your line in the 135-acre lake and reel in a nice trout. Or bring a picnic and lounge at the open grass area, which has picnic tables and barbecues for grilling.
Perhaps the most memorable viewpoint of La Quinta is from a hot air balloon. Adventurous travelers can book a hot air balloon ride at sunrise or sunset, taking in bird's-eye views of the golf courses, orchards, and mountains.
La Quinta is no stranger to festivals. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, held less than 10 miles from La Quinta, draws visitors from all over the world each year.
