Intrawest Palm Desert questions

What can you walk to from the Intrawest property? Restaurants, grocery stores, entertainment??

Are there decent bike routes from the resort?

Any other feedback welcome! Thanks

There's a shopping village at the intersection of Cook and Country Club, nearby, within an easy walk or bike ride. The grocery there is Ralph's, I believe. For a mind blowing grocery/deli experience, go a couple miles south on Country Club to Bristol Farms at Monterey and CC Drive. You'll use your car to get to other places that you'll want to visit around Palm Desert. Your resort is but one in a huge parade of country club communities, mostly private, in every direction. The good news is that there are plenty of fabulous places to dine and shop within a 5-25 minute drive in any direction.

The supermarket is Ralph's, and there are several restaurants in that shopping center, including the Cork Tree, which is very good. You can walk to the Desert Willow Golf Club, which has a beautiful restaurant, outside terrace, and excellent food. Bicycling is easy because the sidewalks in Palm Desert and the Valley communities are wide (for golf carts) and you can ride to La Quinta, Indian Wells, El Paseo, and probably even Palm Springs if you wish. Look at Google maps to give yourself an orientation. If you only have a bicycle, you would then have to look to Washington Street as the closest next area for shopping centers, stores, and restaurants.

The Ralph's shopping village on Cook and Country Club also has a hair and nail salon, a pharmacy, some small shops. Ralph's has a large deli section where you could buy sandwiches or ready made food.

Cork Tree is a favorite restaurant in the center. There is also a Morton's Steak House.

As mentioned, Bristol Farms Grocery Store is top of the line. Will you have a car?
