In December 2012, I stopped here twice. Employees were very helpful with direction s and providing maps for hiking trails. I was always asked if I needed more information.

Yes, you're still warmly welcomed here. Yes, they have a wealth of knowledge that they are more than happy to share with you. Yes, they have lots of Palm Desert souveniers at reasonable prices. All good and a must-stop-here when visiting Palm Desert.

All that said, we miss its previous location on El Paseo. Oh well, change is good...right?

We have travelled to the area before and visited to gain information covering trips and shopping and restaurants over our 4 day visit.
We received knowledgeable and friendly relevant information from people passionate as to their area, but wanting to be of assistance and make your stay enjoyable.
