Palm Desert CA Real Estate represents some of the best over all values in the otherwise pricey California real estate market. The value for the money remains very high when compared to other areas of the state. The proximity to the 22 million southern Californians makes it a perpetually popular weekend getaway. The warmth of our winters makes it the perfect place to escape the cold and snowy weather in the North. Palm Desert offers an enviable resort lifestyle that includes over 320 days of Sunshine per year. Theatre, art and culture abound with hundreds of live performances at dozens of theatres including the McCallum, by world renowned artists every year. Fine dining and world class shopping from the heavy weights of the luxury goods world – Tiffany, Saks 5th Avenue, Gucci and more grace El Paseo in Palm Desert. Loads of interesting and unique shops complement these world famous names. The Living Desert is a community resource and unique treat for Desert Visitors. A cross between a botanical garden and zoo there are activities and learning experiences for every member of the family at the The Living Desert, located at 47900 Portola Avenue just South of El Paseo.
