Enjoy the outdoors of La Quinta with these activities


Living in a desert setting opens up a myriad of options for exploration, enjoyment, and excitement. More so when you reside in the dynamic resort city of La Quinta.

Here are the various outdoor activities that will make you grateful that you chose La Quinta, CA for buying real estate.


Every golf aficionado will know that La Quinta is the epicenter of all things golf in the Coachella Valley. You will find around a hundred golf courses in and around this city in the desert, several of which have seen exciting championship tours and the like.

Whether you’re a spectator or a player of the sport, you’ll find these La Quinta, CA golf courses to be worth your while. Should you desire, you can even buy any of the homes for sale in the communities found within the vicinity of some private golf courses mentioned here:


Get the chance to explore not just La Quinta but the rest of the Coachella Valley as you ride on a Pedego electric bike. It’s a highly recommended mode of transport that helps you navigate your way around the area while keeping fit. Its electric function also helps especially with inclines and paths that may require more than the standard maneuvering so that you have more miles to cover without tiring out too easily.

The shop in Old Town La Quinta has Pedego bikes for sale and for rent. They also offer accessories, maintenance, and repairs.


Relish the majesty of La Quinta’s desert setting by exploring the city’s two green spaces: the Fred Wolff Bear Creek and Nature Preserve and the Lake Cahuilla Recreation Area. The trails in both parks are available for jogging, hiking, and biking. You can even bring along your canine companion, provided they’re on a leash. Camping is allowed in Lake Cahuilla but swimming is not allowed in the lake. Should you still want to take a dip, Lake Cahuilla has a swimming pool that allows for some respite from the desert heat.


Can you engage in retail therapy while taking in the rich scenery of the outdoors? In La Quinta, you can, especially in Old Town La Quinta. It’s not your typical mall – it’s an entire spread of buildings and open spaces that make up an outdoor shopping paradise with the lofty Santa Rosa Mountains as its backdrop.

If the freshest produce is what you’re after then visit the Certified Farmers’ Market in Old Town La Quinta every Sunday from 8:30 AM to 1:30 PM. Here, you’ll find an assortment of products sourced from within a hundred miles’ radius of La Quinta.


In case you get all tuckered out from playing, biking, exploring, or shopping in La Quinta, you can wind down and relax in Spa La Quinta of the La Quinta Resort & Club. Choose from a variety of massage techniques from the highly-recommended Sports Massage to the luxurious Wine Down Massage. They also have skincare products, as well as extensive salon services, among many others.
