Lots of equestrian events in the Coachella Valley
Coachella Valley Fitness & Sports..
We are an active, physically fit group of desert dwellers for the most part. I think it’s because of our “indoor/outdoor” living we are lucky enough to experience fitness most of the year. There are seasonal outings of course, like the HITS horseshow, and International Polo Games, but it’s really just the variety of daily “things to do” for your wellness that brings people of all ages to our beautiful Coachella Valley.
Coachella Music Festival grounds are larger and even grander!
Locals and the Music Festival!! As with all relationships,there is a yin and a yang to the three weekends of the Coachella Music Festivals. The first two bring in current superstars, future hopefuls, and recent New Musical discoveries in the Coachella Music Festival. The only difference this season was the SIZE of the Festival..the city approved a newly enhanced limit of 125,000 people. The grounds themselves were larger too. All this was FANTASTIC! But…increased traffic, increased litter, long waits, detours to stay away from the busy streets..some inconveniences for us locals.

The Coachella Music Festival has added Desert Trip for Fall 2016.
The newest Music Festival to be added to the Coachella Music Festival line up is Desert Trip. So what’s the big deal?? Another Music Festival in Coachella..what’s the big deal? Well it DOES matter, and it IS a big deal! This will be the first time a Fall Music Festival will be held at the Polo grounds in Indio, CA. Two weekends of staggering shows have come together, and tickets were snapped up immediately! A fall Music Festival, that is very different from the Coachella style, will be another boost for the entire Valley, states Kimberley Kelly, local Realtor.
PGA West is a popular destination for our Music Festival attendees
Coachella Music Festival Lease Properties: One of the positives of having the HUGE success of the Coachella Music Festivals, is the increased demand for Leases. Not all Music Festival requested Lease properties are “Luxury”. Meaning simply that not everyone has rich tastes. There are many, many demands for people visiting that are quite happy with a small condo at Indian Palms Country Club, and many people actually prefer a regular place at PGA West. So..”Luxury” can mean a different type of Music Festival experience to each visitor to our beautiful Coachella Valley. If you’re thinking of purchasing an investment property, let me set up a tour for you! 760-285-3578.
Music Festivals bring fans & $ to Indio, CA.
Music Festivals bring millions to the City of Indio, Calif. The city of Indio has always been known to the Locals as “The City of Festivals.” Before the Coachella Music Festivals, that generally meant The Indio Date Festival and the Tamale Festival! Not any more. The sleepy city of old Indio has now gained acknowledgement as the home of the highest ranked Music Festival in the world! Tickets for the 2016 Coachella Music and Arts Festival sold out in less than an hour. These two festivals, ranked #1, and #3 respectively, brought in more than $106 million for their organizers in 2015. Forbes ranked them first and third on the list of highest grossing music festivals of the year. (Desert Sun) If you’re thinking of buying or selling in the desert, give me a call at 760-285-3578.

Beautiful, rural, open land in Thermal, CA, is what brought The Thermal Club.
The Thermal Club; Car Lovers desert Paradise! Who would have believed Car owners, collectors and competitors would bring their rarified world to the eastern Coachella Valley. Not me..I’ve lived here for over 30 years, and just did not see this one coming! It really does make sense though. Our Eastern Coachella cities, Thermal, Coachella and Indio have definitely seen an increase in seasonal activities over the past 10 years or so. Every season brings more awareness that there is a bevy of things to do in Thermal, besides watching dates being harvested, and crops being grown. Our East Valley is an agricultural mecca to be sure. With fertile soil, temperate weather, and extreme heat during the summers, many crops thrive! And now comes a car lovers’ dream; The Thermal Club, to further enhance the city of Thermals spot as a destination event city, and have I got a Car Collectors’ Dream Property for you to view.
