contentsLa Quinta CA Chamberads


The La Quinta business community is strong and diverse. While the economic downturn has affected all businesses, La Quinta businesses have taken aggressive measures to remain top of mind with their customers and maintain a high profile with local residents, visitors and other business partners.

La Quinta businesses span the city, with concentrations of businesses along the Highway 111 corridor, on Washington and in Old Town. The breadth of our business community gives local residents and visitors the ability to shop La Quinta, with little need to go far beyond our city limits.

The expanse of locations and diversity of businesses are a direct result of the spirit of cooperation and partnership that the City of La Quinta takes when processing business inquiries, permits and licenses and supporting local business.
