Summer in La Quinta
The most frequently asked question we get, as full-time desert dwellers, is "What is it like to live in La Quinta in the summer?"
Frankly... I love it. The pace is slower in La Quinta in the summer. Fewer golfers go by, less traffic, no reservations needed at restaurants, no waiting in line for anything. Tourists and snow-birds are gone and the locals rule.
We have a day-date to the movies and catch a happy hour on the way home. We take little day trips to nearby cities like Borrego Springs, Temecula, or spend the day exploring old Palm Springs. It's a great time to visit local museums like Sunnylands or the Palm Springs Air Museum.
We do our travelling in the summer-- visit friends and family who live in cooler areas! But I'm always happy to return to La Quinta.
Every place has its weather... ours is the summer heat. A few months of hot is a small price to pay for the gorgeous warm days and cool nights we enjoy for most of the year. Besides...when you get too hot... you just jump in the pool!
