Destination guide

The vacation equivalent of a hole in one

La Quinta is the sort of place where you pack a jacket just to look cool at the bar, not because there's any chance you'll need it to keep warm. With its incredible year-round climate and chic vibe, this gorgeous resort city in the Coachella Valley is the kind of place California dreams are made of. It's most famous for its golf courses (more than 20 of them), but while it's undeniably a golfer's paradise, La Quinta vacation rentals will appeal to anyone with a taste for good living, fresh air, clear skies, and mountain views.

Things to do

With a La Quinta vacation rental, you're not taking a gamble

The La Quinta Museum is a cute little outpost of local and natural history, and is well worth a quick visit. If art's more your thing, then you might want to take an excursion down to the Palm Springs Art Museum, which is best-known for its contemporary art collection. And when you're finished chancing your arm against your handicap on the golf course, how about chancing it against Lady Luck as well? In keeping with its rep as a vacation spot for the glamorous set, the La Quinta area is well-stocked with casinos.

Activities

Get those clubs and caddies ready for action

There's one sound above all others that typifies La Quinta vacation rentals, and that's the thwack of a metal club hitting a little white ball. La Quinta is regularly ranked as one of the best spots in the entire U.S. to play golf, and if you're all about the checkered pants and linen cap, then you've come to the right place. Of course, there's plenty more to do 'round here as well: Hiking and other outdoor activities are big, or you could always just exercise your credit card with a bit of shopping at La Quinta's high-class boutiques.

Weather

How many superlatives does a city really need?

There's literally almost nowhere in the United States where you're less likely to need a sweatshirt. La Quinta vacation rentals dish up the sort of deliciously warm winters that have the snowbirds flocking here by the thousands. While Florida might drop rain on you to make up for its mild temperatures, there's none of that in Southern California. La Quinta is dry year-round, though you wouldn't know it to look at the emerald golf courses. The flipside is the summer sun, which can be a bit strong for some. However, if you don't mind the heat, you might get better rates.

Natural features

You're going to have a Coachelluva time in La Quinta

Luxurious La Quinta is set toward the top end of the lush Coachella Valley, and if there's one feature that dominates the skyline 'round here, it's the Santa Rosa Mountains. They stretch for about 30 miles through the west of the valley, accommodating plenty of hiking trails, and they're also home to some rare animal celebrities such as the Peninsular bighorn sheep. Head a little further south, and you'll soon come across the Salton Sea, a massive inland salt lake. With its remarkable climate, the area's well-known for growing delicate fruits, like dates and grapefruit.
