La-Quinta is a small community that sits at the base of the beautiful Santa Rosa Mountains, just 30 minutes from Palm Springs. Situated in the center of the Coachella Valley, La Quinta is home to the valley's oldest resort, which was a retreat for the stars of Hollywood's "Golden Era." La Quinta enjoys the same wonderful weather as neighboring Palm Springs, with low humidity and sunshine almost every day of the year! The year round pleasant weather means lots of outdoors-recreational opportunities, with golf and tennis being at the top of the list. La Quinta is home to PGA West, which is recognized worldwide and host to numerous national and professional events. You can visit Joshua Tree State Park or ride a tram up the side of Mt. San Jacinto and go hiking on foot, or on mule back! La Quinta also offers a fabulous array of restaurants and lodging choices, many with magnificent desert and mountain views. And just minutes away are all the cultural and recreational attractions of Palm Springs! La Quinta is known for its peaceful and relaxing small town atmosphere, which is exactly what you need in a vacation get-a-way resort!

La Quinta Weather & Climate

The vast desert region of southern California east of Los Angeles has a typical desert climate. This area, which includes Palm Springs, Palm Desert and Rancho Mirage receives only 15-20 days of rainfall per year for a total of 4.77 inches. The days are mostly sunny and warm and nights are cool from fall through late spring. Summers turn hot to very hot, with occasional high clouds, and warm, balmy evenings May through October.
