The Desert Empire
Despite the fact that it’s part of the Inland Empire’s Riverside County, the area that the Coachella Valley encompasses is so distinctive from the rest of Southern California that it has earned its own nickname. Dubbed the “Desert Empire,” the Valley lies northwest of the inland Salton Sea (California’s largest lake) and is ringed by the San Bernardino, San Jacinto, Santa Rosa and Little San Bernardino Mountains.
These majestic mountain ranges successfully block the marine layer that forms in most other areas of Southern California, leaving the Valley with a mild climate characterized by lots of sun and little precipitation. The wintertime temperatures here range from 50 to 80 degrees, which accounts for the population boom that the area enjoys during the winter months.
Though naturally arid, the Coachella Valley has been irrigated for almost a century and is known for its agricultural products like dates and citrus fruits. Many would agree, however, that the Valley is mainly famous for the more than 200 golf courses and for the world-renowned resort towns and communities that surround them.
Even before extensive developments had taken place in the area, Coachella Valley real estate was already a favorite among celebrities. Located far enough from the hustle-bustle of L.A. and featuring dramatic desert scenery as well as 350 days of sunshine a year, the Valley was considered a haven and the perfect place to relax and unwind.
Then and now, folks still see the Valley as a place of refuge. Coachella Valley real estate is a retreat, an oasis of calm and serenity in a complex, stressful world.
