You are here

Home of the famous Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, visitors flock to Indio, California, from all over the world. The two-weekend festival is a celebration of music, art, love, life, and culture, and you'll be central to the excitement when you plan your stay in Indio. If you can't score tickets to Coachella, fear not; they call Indio the City of Festivals, and there's plenty of other events year-round in town where you can see a show or grab a bite to eat. Speaking of eating—if you're looking for a local treat, grab a scoop of date ice cream from Shields Date Garden, then stroll their 17-acre date grove and botanical garden.

Polo and golf are big in the Indio area; if either piques your interest, plan to spend some time at the Empire Polo Club or the Eagle Falls Golf Course, an 18-hole, 6,715-yard course designed by architect Clive Clark. Whatever type of activities you schedule, you're in for blue skies, warm weather, and picturesque mountain views. Find your Indio vacation rental here.
