Should I Buy A Vacation Home in Palm Springs or Palm Desert?

April 22, 2015

If you’re wondering whether you should buy a home in Palm Springs or Palm Desert, it’s important to look at the details. Palm Desert and Palm Springs are just minutes from each other in the Coachella Valley, so they have a lot in common. They both have beautiful warm weather with low humidity and beautiful desert scenery, but each has its own unique feel.

You enjoy a nice walk. Palm Springs has one main drag, Palm Canyon Drive, and this street is very pedestrian-friendly. It’s lined with tall palms that gently shade the sidewalk but leave pedestrians generous views of Mount San Jacinto. The street is also lined with some of Palm Springs’ best shopping, dining, and galleries.

You like mid-century architecture. The city of Palm Springs has one of the largest collections of homes built in the 1950s and 1960s in the nation.

You want more of a city atmosphere. Palm Springs is more metropolitan than Palm Desert. There’s a world-class museum and the village downtown area with dining and shopping areas, as well as all of the excitement that living in the city entails. Every Thursday, Villagefest features booths with local art, handcrafts, food, and the opportunity to enjoy the many shops and restaurants that are open late.

You enjoy world-class shopping. El Paseo is Palm Desert’s own little Rodeo Drive, full of high fashion and fine dining. Stores such as Louis Vuitton, Tiffany & Co., and Hillis Furs and Leathers provide fashion that’s elegant enough for A-list celebrities, who have been known to frequent the area.

You want an oasis away from the bustling city. Palm Desert presents a more serene lifestyle than Palm Springs simply because it’s outside the larger city area. Mountain and desert views abound here, and some estates offer views of Palm Springs in the distance, as well. If you appreciate all that Palm Springs has to offer, but wish to have a retreat outside the bustle of the city, Palm Desert is the better choice.
