Thunderbird Heights History
Thunderbird Heights is a community filled with the history and drama of a day gone by, yet still appeals to today's desert vacation home seekers. In the 1950s, Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz and Bing Crosby were instrumental in the development of the exclusive Thunderbird Heights community. President Gerald Ford and his wife Betty owned a home here for many years; just recently resold.

Aside from its history, Thunderbird Heights central location puts it on the short list for many discerning vacationers. Rancho Mirage's Restaurant Row is just outside the front gates, and the popular River shopping, dining and entertainment complex is only a short drive away.
