“Interesting place”

The River at Rancho Mirage
Reviewed December 18, 2012

The river is interesting and worth a visit. In the summer there is little shade and it can be hot. There are interesting stores and restaurants to visit. The Yard House is very good.

As an attraction in Rancho Mirage I was mystified as to what all the hype was about. There is a shortage of shops...apparently this is becoming more of a commercial office space mall. I wandered through the complex and was hard-pressed to find anything to see or to do. Aside from the movie theatre complex, several restaurants and a few shops that appear to be poorly attended I would give this attraction a pass. What could have been an interesting shopping complex and a dining experience seems rather underutilized and poorly attended. I would not waste time here and would rather head to the El Paseo in Palm Desert for greater enjoyment and variety.

This used to be full of small and medium shops with lots of customers. Now they have gone.

There are a handful of okay to great restaurants. There is a theater. Just opened is a new '16 forever' shop (which I am not). And that about wraps up the River.

Has someone damned this place?

movies, dinner, coffee, and some shopping. Good parking, nice environment. a good choice Everytime you go, you can have a varied experience because of the huge range of food options. The one thing that is missing is a nice bakery, coffee shop with music, sofas wifi and indoor/outdoor seating.
Sometimes the seating by starbucks is not cleaned often.

Not at all run-of-the-mill shopping plaza, The River looks and feels high end. Most of the stores/restaurants face an inner courtyard with a pleasant water feature and attractive landscaping. We stopped to watch and listen to a harpist playing some beautiful music outside. The place is quite compact - you can do the full circle in less than 10 minutes; unless you are tempted to shop in one of the stores or linger for food or drinks in one of the nice restaurants. Don't look for Target or TJ Maxx, it's not that kind of place.
