I fell in love with La Quinta and can't wait to go back. Old Town is so cute and quaint. There are some great restaurants and shops. At night when it's lit up it is charming and romantic. They have farmers market on weekends and they do movie nights outside... Art shows and other cultural events make this a really... More

At about ten years young, Old Town really isn't old. But it has the ambiance and architecture or a time gone by...but with gorgeous white spanish colonial buildings draped with bright bougainvilleas. There are restaurants, retails stores and wine shops, etc. My only gripe is we wish it was bigger, with more options, more shops. Parking within the small streets... More

My favorite coffee stop in La Quinta and late evening walks. Such a great place. There is nothing like that anywhere close. Go to see it day or night.

We somehow had a hard time finding this place and the restaurant we were heading to. It was mid week and there was no one to be seen to ask. Once we parked and made out way it was a fine walk on a nice evening. Saw several restaurants that looked full and lively.

Great place to spend the afternoon. A lot of small shops and boutiques. A few restaurants and wine bars. Park your car and walk around. The ladies will love. Don't miss Stuff't - great food & bar.

The restaurants are all unique and offer a wide of variety. Our favorite is the Lavender Bistro. They have a beautiful patio and a piano player is always enjoyable to listen to, The menu is very desirable but on the expensive side but we always go there one or two times during our January, February, March stay in the Desert.

Old Town La Quinta is a great place to stroll and see some uniques shops and ear at some great restaurants. We visited with our 7 & 8 year old boys and had a great time. We ran and played on the grass area in the middle of town and had great coffee at the coffee house. We have previously... More

We stopped here & found that a lot of the stores were closed. There wasn't a lot happening & no one was on the streets. We enjoyed the flowers , fountains, & buildings. It reminded me of Mediterranean.

Old Town is a quaint area comprised of shops and restaurants. It is easy to park and walk everywhere. The clothing and gift shops are unique and the proprietors are friendly. There are several wonderful restaurants, most of which are open throughout the summer. Embassy Suites is within walking distance.
