Showcasing 13 golf courses and a playground for presidents, Rancho Mirage is nestled in the heart of the Coachella Valley. Scenic mountain views enrich the city, which is home to the affluent, retired, and seasonal residents escaping colder climates. The Rancho Mirage Library & Observatory is a favorite destination for visitors of all ages, and The River at Rancho Mirage offers restaurants, shops, and theaters in a splendid outdoor setting. Several world-class resorts, including the Ritz-Carlton and Omni Rancho Las Palmas, offer prime locations in the city.

​​​​​​​Meandering trails and pathways combine with beautiful city parks to enhance outdoor enjoyment throughout Rancho Mirage. Originally the home of TV Guide founder and philanthropist Walter Annenberg and his wife, Leonore, Sunnylands Center & Gardens is exceptionally popular for those who love Mid-Century Modern architecture, exquisite landscaping, and political history. Over the years, the estate has welcomed presidents, world leaders, and Hollywood Royalty.
