Any info. on Rancho Mirage?
Save

We're coming up from Vancouver Canada at the end of November, just for 4 days... wondering what kind of temperature to expect at this time (I've checked some internet weather sites, and there seems to be a lot a variances). We're actually staying in Rancho Mirage... don't know anything about this area, but we wanted to stay at a Westin, and the one there looked nice. My husband will want to stay and relax at the hotel, but I like to hit the shops... I'm hoping that there is some within a reasonable cab ride? Any info. would be really appreciated!

We have a home at Morningside Country Club in Rancho Mirage. The weather at the end of November can be very pleasant, but bring a coat for evenings. The good shopping is on El Paseo Drive (like a scaled-down Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills)in Palm Desert. In Rancho Mirage, there are restaurants and some shopping at "The River". And of course don't skip ol' Palm Springs.

We've spent every Thanksgiving in the Rancho Mirage/Palm Desert area for the last 15 years, and with the exception of one year when it was a bit cool, the weather has always been pleasant. A few years it has been quite warm, around 80 or so, but most of the time it has hovered around 70. It has always been warm enough for my kids and husband to go swimming! I agree with the previous poster that you should definitely bring a jacket for evenings.

El Paseo is definitely the place to go for shopping. There is also a huge outlet mall about 30 minutes east of Rancho Mirage on Interstate 10 -- your resort may have an outing planned to the outlet mall if you don't plan on renting a car.

Have a great time!

The Angelview Resale Shops in PS, CC, and PD are great for shopping. PS has a Thrift Shop and also an Upscale Boutique for high quality mens and ladies clothing. The PD store also has a small boutique in their store.

It's so much fun to see what kind of treasures you can find in these shops.

The profits from these stores go towards a

local charity, but, I do not recall what that

charity is.

Have fun and check out that new casino out by the outlet shopping on I-10, it looks so Jetson like.
