Coachella is a great place to live in. I have lived all my life here. twenty six years and I think i wouldn't move to another place because is calm and they have beautiful mountains. Even thought in summer it gets super hot like one hundred and twenty degrees, I love it here. I have all my family and friends here. The coachella valley has wonderful parks with basketball courts and soccer fields. We have plenty of parks and it doesn't get super busy. It has great restaurants and different types of food. Thai food is one of my favorite. Also it has great Chinese restaurants that i enjoy. I love the fact that is not a busy place to live like LA o New York.

I have lived in the Coachella Valley for since I was two years old, I'm now 42 years old. There's a range in economic status from the working class to the very affluent. I would like to see the gap close in more and have more middle class people of Hispanic decent in this city. While neighboring cities in the Coachella Valley (Indio, Palm Desert, La Quinta, Indian Wells, Palm Springs) have more middle class people in them, the City of Coachella still has too many people who are at poverty levels. They are good people just don't have enough education or skills to get them out of their socio-economic status. That needs to change.
Coachella is a quiet and beautiful place. No traffic except during Coachella Fest. This is home to people who are inspired and hard workers. It gets really hot during summer, but it is only for three months. Houses are cheaper compared to neighboring counties.
