We did not take an organized tour to see them, but you can't miss them driving the I10 north. We saw them from Joshua Tree National Park, and when we went up the Tramway. It is an... read more

You must book this attraction in advance. It's a little pricey, but we totally enjoyed it. It's definitely something different. Randy, our tour guide was great. He gave us the history and really explained everything. We got to see the windmills up close and personal. They are very cool. Who knew there were so many different kinds? I definitely recommend...

It was very interesting to see all the windmills along I-10. This is certainly the "green" way to go.

We took the "Best of the Best" tour of the Coachella Valley Wind Farms. You will see hundreds up close and be informed about the geology that produces the wind, the Native Americans' presence in the area (past and present), wind science and how it contributes to the electric grid, how wind power affects jobs and the economy and more....

You don't have to buy a ticket to tour the windmill farms along Interstate 10 and the Palm Springs exits. All you have to do is stop at one of the local gas stations or fast food restaurants and you'll get a great view of towering windmills all around you. The windmills actually start showing up near the Morongo Casino... More

I took a recommendation from another reviewer to stop by the Amtrak train station. The views of the windmills from the station was ecstatic! It's not far from the highway and makes a nice break if needed.

I am not a huge fan of the windmills so this place was not interesting. I don't find them pretty and I find it ironic that environmentalists push such an inefficient means of energy. They are a blight overall to the environment and will just create a huge maintenance problem over the years. So I may not be totally unbiased... More

This hidden gem was recommended to me for home made foods ready to serve when you get to your home or destination. Great for taking to park outings, etc. The food is well prepared, nutritious, and large servings. I especially loved the meatloaf dinners.
