Lots of nice stores here on El Paseo...but be advised that it is high end shopping. Tiffanys, etc. Not in everyone's budget...but it's fun to look.

Spent a nice, cloudy day shopping up and down El Paseo today. The shops ranges from national stand-bys like Lucky Brand jeans, to unique, locally owned boutiques. And great restaurants as well! For those in to art (not me...) it looked like there was much to enjoy. And the jewelry! Go!

The El Paseo Shopping District is several blocks long, and offers visitors many dining and shopping options. The palm trees lining the boulevard are lit with tiny white lights at night, adding to the charm of the area. The blocks closest to Highway 74 are high end, featuring Burberry, Escada, Gucci, Polo and the like. El Paseo also features lovely... More

I'm not much into shopping but will wander along with good friends as long as it's not a big box mall and this is not. A fascinating place to see how the rich shop with a few better priced places sprinkled in for the rest of us. The most amazing selection of high end cars parked along it's street too.... More

If you want great views of the mountain ranges while strolling through town then this is a nice spot. The store selections vary from common high end retail brands to local boutiques.

There is an occasional reasonably priced store here but it is the equivalent of Rodeo Drive in the desert. I can not see spending 400.00 on a shirt even if I had the money! If you have endless amounts of money to throw away this might be the place for you but definitely not for me. The California Pizza Kitchen... More

El Paseo is perfect if you like to put on your Uggs and your jewels and stomp around to see & be seen. Not my kind of scene at all but it does have lots of lovely high end shops. I was shopping for less expensive Christmas presents so it wasn't a good fit for my needs. I did see... More

The shops are very ritzy but fun to window shop. The galleries are wonderful. It's like going to a bunch of small art museum. Be there between 3 and 6pm for lot's of happy hour choices. Nice way to finish a day. Tommy Bahama's is my favorite happy hour .

We have been Palm Spring several times but this was the first time we visited this strip of shopping centre. Very attractive area for tourists, many high end shops, galleries and cafes. Will return next time.
