Reading previous reviews, I could agree with almost everyone's comments. It's a little bit of this and a little bit of that. We visited during the art show and loved the booths...great quality! We returned when there was no art show simply to view the old town and yes, there isn't much happening and yes, there are many vacant shops... More

There is little town in Old Town La Quinta as this is only a small street with 8-10 active shops. Most either tourist shops or women's clothing and street takes approximately 3-5 minutes to go through. There are also a few restaurants. It is extremely cozy but most come only to drink coffee or eat some food at the Old... More

Take a stoll through old town La Quinta. A great place to stop, take a walk, have a cup of coffee or a bite to eat. It is cute and not crowded. You can also ride your bike in this neighbourhood.

We have watched this town built... Then grow ... Then change again.. It is a lively little piece of replicating old town togetherness .... It is only going to get better... You have it all.. Retail... Restaurants... Coffee shop ... Your businesses to serve your "other" needs.... Hair massage etc etc... Great concept... Needs ALL our support!!!!!

We traveled there to see the annual Art Under The Umbrellas show and sale. Old town La Quinta is Spanish in flavor with shopping, restaurants and galleries. More focus on women, because of the amount of clothing and jewelery offerings. It's all tuck out of the way of the commercial area of La Quinta. Just a pleasant place to go... More

This is more of a theme mall than an actual town centre and while there are some nice shops and a relaxed atmosphere there is also the feeling that they have seen better times. There are spaces for lease throughout and not many customers in the those that are open. We did enjoy the olive oil and balsamic vinegar boutique.

Went to Old Town again. Not much going on. It was Sunday and they had a few vendors on the street for the farmers market. Love the Olive Oil shop. They have a 25 year old balsamic vinegar that is excellent. Stuft Pizza for lunch was good. Not sure how the other businesses survive because there was nothing happening. Worth... More
