Great place to wander. Some good retailers with nice merchandise, at good prices. Clothing, hair and nail salons and olive oil/coffee shops and wine bars round out the offerings. The best is the nitrogen ice cream parlor. Oh my! So good and creamy.

It's not really an old town and is not worth your time as a destination. Some developer made a plaza to look old. A couple of clothing shops that cater to seniors not younger people. Coffee shop was great. Wouldn't go there again.

La Quinta is one of the nicest communities in the valley. Many sites and events to peek the interest of the "first-timer" and keep the returning folks happy. If in The area, stop for lunch/dinner or just a "walkabout".

Woth a visit to Old Town La Quinta while in the Coachella Valley. Every second Saturday they have Art Under the Umbrellas which fetures local artists, jewellers, etc. An organic food market is held on Sundays. Great coffee shop, various restaurants and clothing stores.

Has seen better days. Lots of eateries and a few shops. Most overprices and some having sales. One shop owner asked about where he could move his shop to Austin since I'm from Texas. Restaurants saw more business.

I have been visiting La Quinta for 8 years, and always enjoy walking around (and dining in) Old Town. The shops are charming, the restaurants very good. My favourites: Solano's and Stuft Pizza. Saturday art festivals are always fun.

This quaint little Old Town La Quinta is worth a visit, particularly on the weekends whey they have Art Under the Umbrella's, weekly Farmer's Markets and other fun activities they do throughout the year. There are many restaurants where you can stroll through town and find something for everyone. We love going to Stuft Pizza where there is a vibrant... More

Lots of free on street parking available a short walk from the Old Town. Great collection of restaurants and shops, even have a taproom from La Quinta Brewing. Many restaurants have patios.

It is a small area, so easy to walk through. Lots of cute boutique shops, nail salons, restaurants. If you like clothes shopping or need a good meal in a cute restaurant it is a nice stop, and cozy, not the hustle of the bigger surrounding communities. Easy parking on the street. Better for adults then kids.

Thank CRMyers
