Palm Desert, CA

Palm Desert

A major center of growth in the Coachella Valley and the cultural and retail center of the desert communities, Palm Desert stands as a popular and highly sought-after community offering all that's needed for a high quality of life. The city has a healthy number of permanent residents and snowbird visitors, and many will find that this city offers the public services and amenities of a large metropolis in a friendly, small-town atmosphere. Rated one of the safest cities in Southern California, and offering a nice assortment of amenities and quality real estate, Palm Desert is a thriving community.

Originally known as the Old MacDonald Ranch, the city's name changed to Palm Village in the 1920s and finally gained its current and official name in 1951. Palm Desert embodies a luxury lifestyle, providing all that's needed for a modern, comfortable living experience. The city is known for its hot, arid climate, and with a stable housing market offering a number of different options on the local real estate market, the city is a true example of a vibrant, living desert community in Southern California. While it may seem expensive, when one considers the overall costs of healthcare, transportation, gas prices, utilities and other important day-to-day expenses, Palm Desert is actually quite affordable when compared to other popular desert communities. Ripe with amenities, services, activities, and more, and home to the College of the Desert and extension campuses for both the University of California Riverside and California State University San Bernardino, Palm Desert is an excellent choice for anyone looking for a true quality community to thrive in.
