My wife and I stayed in La Quinta and were looking for things to do. Prior reviewers nailed it in describing 'Old" Town as just a faux touristy experience with not a heck of lot to do. We are talking maybe a couple of blocks of small boutique shops, none of which would hold a man's interest other than perhaps... More

I began my day with coffee at Old Town Coffee Company. There were quite a few people in line which suggested to me that the place must be popular for a reason. There was quite a good variety of options on the menu for both breakfast and lunch. The menu was on the wall and easy to read. The staff... More

This is a development masquerading as an old downtown. But if faux doesn't bother you, this is a pleasant enough place.

Stayed at the Embassy Suites nearby. The November weather was wonderful. Got a chance to walk around after our lunch and dinner.

They have built an "old town" here that is quite nice...great shops, mostly for women, my wife found some unique pieces, and some good food too. Nice experience if your in the area but don't go out of your way to get there - not much to it and it could be visited in an hour or less.

LA Quinta is the gem of the desert. The village is a must especially when events are taking place like art under the umbrellas or farmers market. Good food and people watching.

This beautiful area was built several years ago and we had high hopes for a wonderful destination to eat and shop. The area has had a hard time maintaining its businesses which frequently open and close. There are several nice restaurants but not much else to do, unless you hit the area on a day when there is a sponsored... More

We checked out the art stalls this past weekend. The art was amazing. The cute little place called Old Town La Quinta is worth checking out with out the art show on the street. Old white buildings with cute boutiques and a great little coffee shop. There are stylish restaurants as well. Wherever you are staying take time to have... More

Seems to me this should be a hub bub of activity. They have a good layout, easy accessibility, plenty of parking. Just nothing there to see. There are a couple of women's shops (which are okay) a candy place....no real reason to go there 'cept, I liked the coffee shop. As far as a destination to spend some time, I... More
