It starts with the natural beauty of the Santa Rosa Mountains, and ends with… well, it just doesn’t seem to end! La Quinta is truly the 'Gem of the Desert' located about 30 minutes east of Palm Springs.
In 1926 Walter Morgan built the world-famous La Quinta Hotel (now called the La Quinta Resort & Club).
In 1982, the city of La Quinta was incorporated, and is now recognized for its world-class golf events, thriving arts community and phenomenal growth. La Quinta's extraordinary growth in only 25 years can be attributed to the unparalleled lifestyle that the City offers its residents.
The beautiful mountain vistas, abundant recreation opportunities and the variety of available housing have attracted new residents to the City.
La Quinta hosts special events such as the Skins Game, the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic, and the world-class La Quinta Arts Festival.
The Robb Report recently called La Quinta 'America’s Ultimate Golfing Destination'!
La Quinta’s crown golfing jewel continues to be SilverRock Resort, which garnered national recognition in December 2005 when Golf Magazine named the Arnold Palmer Classic Course at SilverRock one of the 'Top 10 New Courses That You Can Play.' It was the only golf course in California to make the Top 10 list.
