Recognized for its elegant ambience and unique luxury lifestyle, Rancho Mirage is known for its exclusive gated communities, beautiful golf courses, and superb tennis facilities. Fine dining abounds and the #1 Bentley and one of the top Rolls Royce automobile dealerships in the U.S. are located in the City.

Rancho Mirage boasts world-class resorts, including the Valley’s only five-star lodging property, The Ritz-Carlton. The Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort is a favored destination for successful Hollywood business leaders and their families. The Westin Mission Hills Golf Resort & Spa, with its spectacular views of the snow-capped San Jacinto Mountains and superb golf courses, is adjacent to the Mission Hills Country Club, the home to the premier ladies professional golf tournament, the ANA Inspiration (formerly the Kraft Nabisco Championship) for over 40 years.

Agua Caliente Resort Spa offers round the clock gaming and “The Show”, a 2,000 seat premier concert venue that attracts headliner acts that add sizzle to the generally quiet desert enclave.

Our newly remodeled Rancho Mirage Community Park with the addition of a 1,000-seat outdoor amphitheater will remain the venue for the City’s signature event, our Annual Art Affaire.  It will also host a variety of entertainment throughout the year for residents and visitors to enjoy. What could be better than an outdoor concert under our beautiful desert night sky?

Rancho Mirage is fortunate to be the home to institutions like Eisenhower Medical Center, The Betty Ford Center and the Barbara Sinatra Children’s Center – all world-renowned health facilities. The Tolerance Education Center, the Children’s Discovery Museum of the Desert and the Braille Institute deliver programs and services that rival those in any major city.

Sunnylands has become the “Camp David of the West” with two U.S. Presidential meetings being held at the estate over the last two years. Sunnylands’ Gardens and Visitor Center as well as the Estate home of Ambassadors Walter and Leonore Annenberg, have become major attractions in recent years attracting visitors from around the world.

Rancho Mirage High School, home of the “Rattlers”, will graduate its first senior class in 2016.

Rancho Mirage promises the seasoned traveler, as well as its residents, the perfect combination of luxury, value and access to some of North America’s finest golf, spa and dining experiences right in the Heart of the Palm Springs Valley.

Rancho Mirage is a special community. Once you visit, you won’t want to leave.
