Friendly People, Beautiful Cars, Great Restaurants & Casinos,-Centrally located in the Coachella Valley, Low Crime, Hot is summer, but close enough to the beach to escape the heat. Golf, Tennis, and Pickle Ball very popular. Good Hiking Trails and Fantastic Shopping. Everything is conveniently located, no need to drive on a freeway. Eisenhower hospital has wonderful doctors. Traffic is tolerable unlike San Diego , OC and L.A. Most of the jobs here are in the Service, Restaurant, Hotel Golf and Tennis Industry

My husband and I moved here in February 2018. So far we love this area! Our favorite part is the numerous hiking and biking trails in the area. We love getting out for a relaxing (or tough!) hike or riding our bikes to the grocery store or other activities. We live in a neighborhood across from The River and we love being able to walk to bars/restaurants/shopping.
Rancho Mirage is an outstanding destination for long-term residents and seasonal visitors. It has a wealth of history, shared by the wider Palm Springs area, as well as luxuriant ease for its dwellers.
