Palm Desert Shopping - El Paseo Avenue Stores

Apparel from Anthropologie; shoes from Saks Fifth Avenue

From First Friday evening Art Walks and extended shopping hours, to Saturday sunset serenades at The Gardens on El Paseo to the exciting and prestigious Fashion Week, this boulevard boasts an array of things to do.

Among its 250-plus retailers, the mile-long strip features locally owned boutiques; top international retailers such as St. John, Gucci, and Burberry; brilliant fun and fine jewelry; eclectic artwork; sleek and sophisticated home décor; and professional services including day spas, beauty bars, and interior design studios. With so much to do and see, it’s easy to pass an entire day discovering El Paseo.

Sip a cappuccino or a cup of tea at a sidewalk café before exploring the avenue. Stop for a mid-spree repast at any of the two dozen dining establishments, offering everything from French fare to fresh Pacific seafood.

After dropping off your treasures at your car via a sunny yellow courtesy cart, stay for dinner and unwind.

Many of the restaurants offer al fresco dining, where you can enjoy a glass of wine, delicious meal, and dessert on a mountain-view terrace.

Conveniently situated in the center of the Coachella Valley, El Paseo offers ideal proximity to renowned resorts, celebrated golf courses, performing arts venues, and picturesque drives deep into the Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains National Monument.
