Thousand Palms Reviews
We moved out here to be closer to family. It has all of the stores you hope to find, nearby hiking, a view of Mt. San Yacinto, beautiful sunsets, it's affordable, and Palm Springs is a quick drive away for nightlife. Palm Desert has it's share of cons including 115+ heat in the summer, lack of vegetation, and a long commute to places of work including Orange County and Los Angeles. Overall, it's a good city especially if you don't have to commute for work or family.
Small bedroom community very close to many major cities. Tourism and agriculture are the major industries (home of Coachellafest!), and much of the population are seasonal residents, with jobs in support of these. There is a major park & rec area supporting local athletics year round. Only thing we're missing is a good sized grocery store, like a Wal-Mart food-only store and a drug store. There are several close by, but can sometimes be a hassle with traffic to get to them.
I have lived in Thousand Palms since I was 2. Its the only home I have ever known and as much certain things suck I see it as where I'm from in particular. Living here you have access to really great fast food places, a wonderful community park, and the commute to places that offer goods and groceries is always under 20 minutes.
