Palm Desert, California

 

The City of Palm Desert was incorporated in 1973 and today numbers more than 50,000 year-round residents.  It is centrally located in the heart of the Coachella Valley in southeastern Riverside County.  Known as the educational, cultural and retail center of the desert communities, it is only 125 miles east of Los Angeles and 15 miles east of Palm Springs.  The key industries are hospitality, tourism, service and retail.

 

A major center of growth in the Palm Springs area, Palm Desert is a popular retreat for "snowbirds" from colder climates (the Eastern and Northern United States, and Canada), who swell its population by an estimated 31,000 each winter. Recently Palm Desert has seen more residents become "full-timers", mainly from the coasts and urban centers of California, who have come for affordable but high-valued home prices.
