Palm Desert is the geographic center of the valley, between Palm Springs, 12 miles to the west, and Indio, 10 miles to the east. The city is uniquely situated to take advantage of all the valley has to offer, from the heights of Mount San Jacinto and the mountain village of Idyllwild, to beautiful desert landscapes and agricultural fields. Whether you're golfing or sunning, you'll find the weather and ambience near perfection.
