Rancho Mirage

Located in the geographic center of the Palm Springs (Coachella) Valley, Rancho Mirage lies in a sheltered cove, spreading across the desert floor on the South toward the snow capped San Jacinto Mountain range on the west. Also, known as the "Small City - Big Heart."

Trendy relaxation for urban professionals who are looking for a casual but stylish get-a-way with lots of recreation, and comforts are drawn to plentiful commercial land, affordable housing, a growing job market and the lure of family friendly life style.

Tourism, retail and healthcare are an important aspect of Rancho Mirage's economy. With three major resorts; many golf and tennis facilities, hiking, biking, equestrian trails, Aqua Caliente Casino and Nabisco LPGA Tournament there is something for everyone.

Rancho Mirage is a community of country club homes, gated communities, and fairway condominiums with a few open neighborhoods.
