“Been the Same for 25 years”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

Only thing new is that city allows real estate offices in downtown area now. Restaurants come and go as do t-shirt shops. Burned out buildings, vacant mall, empty land forever waiting for some fantasy new development. Still, it's the high street in my home town and I keep hoping...

“Enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

Lots of shops to look at and quite arty and interesting.
Quite a few closed stores which give the feeling of a bit of a place in wind down
Some nice specialist shops
Plenty of places to eat

“Pleasant attraction.”

Touristy area for food and reasonably good shopping. In spite of lots of visitors, locals are pleasant and helpful and some restaurants are very good....most have patios which add to the fu atmosphere.

“Great for walking around and shopping.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

We walked up and down Palm Canyon to see all the shops. We were mostly in downtown but later we heard that there were really nice shops on North Palm canyon so we will check those out. Lots of mid-century stuff.

“Faded glory”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

At one time this may have been a nice place, but it is dirty and racy today. Visit the Palm Desert for a much more appealing experience.
