Where is the Coachella Valley?

The Coachella Valley is located in sunny Southern California, approximately 100 miles inland from the coast and cities such as the vibrant oceanfront city of San Diego and the sprawling metropolis of Los Angeles. Surrounded on all four sides by mountain ranges, the Coachella Valley is a stretch of land that encompasses the desert cities of Palm Springs, Indio, Cathedral City, Palm City, and other thriving towns. With its own school district, booming real estate market, and multitude of music and art events, the Coachella Valley is a fast-growing vacation and residential destination in the California desert.

When visiting the Coachella Valley, there are several great options for accommodations depending on your preferences and budget. Here are a few popular choices:

Indio

If you're attending the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival or the Stagecoach Country Music Festival, staying in Indio can be convenient as it is where the festival grounds are located. There are many vacation rentals available in the area.

When should you visit Coachella Valley?

The temperate winters make the Coachella Valley a popular winter vacation destination, and the year-round warmth helps agriculture thrive. Visitors flock here for the famous Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival each spring, but the valley and surrounding areas offer plenty of other wonderful attractions to delight travelers.

What are some things to do in the Coachella Valley?

With so much rugged, natural beauty nearby, many visitors choose to spend their vacation in the great outdoors, seeking adventure and watching the sunrises and sunsets over the tops of the mountains that surround the valley. During your stay, you can explore the gorgeous scenery via hikes or horseback rides through the desert and mountains. The Salton Sea to the southeast is a large, saltwater lake ideal for birdwatching.

Within an easy drive, you will discover unspoiled desert beauty in areas such as the famous Joshua Tree National Park to the north, the San Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains to the south, and the diverse Snow-to-Sand National Monument to the west.

If you prefer more urban activities, visit one of the Valley's cities to discover a huge variety of entertainment and dining options. The desert oasis of Palm Springs, in particular, offers more than a hundred golf courses, a casino, the Living Desert Zoo, spas, museums, shopping, and fantastic restaurants. Make sure you ride the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway up Chino Canyon to admire the breathtaking views from an altitude of 8,500 feet.

Coachella Valley Music

Of course, one of the area's largest attractions is the iconic Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. Known by many as simply "Coachella," this annual festival is held each spring in Indio and attracts thousands of visitors and some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry. More than just a series of concerts, this festival is one of the largest and most popular in the US and includes art installations and incredible food. If you're in the area for Coachella, make sure to stay an extra weekend and take the opportunity to explore the exciting neighboring cities and spectacular desert nearby!
