Old town is a little gem in the desert. Nice coffee shop, wine bar, restaurants. Lots of ambiance day or night.

This is a small mall with a quaint feel. We enjoyed browsing the shops, which were mostly women's clothing and gifts. Dogs were welcome in the outdoor area.

Old Town La Quinta is a very special place. There are wonderful shops with all kinds of special merchandise. Sundays are for the Farmer's Market. Art Under The Umbrella occurs during the cool months. Many other events take place there throughout the year. Enjoy a meal, stroll through the shops, and take the short walk to a very beautiful park... More

Old Town La Quinta is charming village. Fun to stroll through the nice shops, dine or have a drink on an outdoor patio in this village tucked up against the mountains. Try the tasting room for great olive oils and balsamic vinegars from Italy and around the world. Watch for Art Under the Umbrella's, usually two Saturdays a month during... More

We have dined in many of the wonderful restaurants in old town and find them to be a good value and have excellent food. There are art shows and a farmers market on weekends.

Other "old towns" we have visited over the years were constructed long before the 80's. Just a guess here but this area was not old. Lots of shops and a few restaurants. You will like the shopping if you are into $200 jeans, etc. Did not stay long.....better things to see in the area.

This area of La Quinta was such a delight to visit. We had several meals there, both lunch and dinner as well as great espressos. The shops are unique and the streets & walking paths are clean and quiet. I am totally impressed with La Quinta in general and Old Town in particular. I wish I lived there!
