Living In La Quinta
La Quinta’s history is rich and its story a fascinating tale of success. The city embraces art and culture, offering the La Quinta Arts Festival, live theatre by the La Quinta Playhouse, and a variety of beautiful public art pieces. The bustling Highway 111 corridor and enchanting Old Town Village feature the best of shopping, dining, and personal services. La Quinta’s growth over the last decade has been truly remarkable. Named by the Robb Report as the “Best Place to Live for Golf.”
With average winter temperatures in the mid 70’s, La Quinta truly is the Gem of the Desert. The City is situated approximately 150 miles northeast of San Diego and 130 miles east of Los Angeles on the desert floor of the Coachella Valley. The valley is flanked on three sides by the Little San Bernardino, Santa Rosa, and San Jacinto Mountains. The protection afforded by the mountains contributes to the arid climate. Average rainfall per year is less than 5 inches total. Low temperatures rarely drop below freezing, while highs during the summer are usually in the triple digits—but it’s a “dry” heat. Visitors from colder climates flock to La Quinta and surrounding cities in the Coachella Valley from November to May because of our extremely mild winters.
