“Found this little village on our way to Indio”
Reviewed 28 January 2014

This was a fun little village to explore although it didn't take us long to walk around. Several high end shops to explore and some nice cafes and a wine bar with outdoor seating. A great place to people watch and take a break from all the stop lights along HWY 111.

Nice area to find hair salons, art gallery, boutiques etc! Small outdoor mall like pedestrian only area. Perfect for a stroll or just to look around. There is a wide array of stores with all different types of businesses. There are also a restaurant and coffee place. This is perfect for a small side trip. It is not so large that you loose your friends if you wander off. Good destination if you only have an hour to look around.

“Enjoyable small shopping and Dining area”
Reviewed 16 January 2014

This shopping and dining area is very quiet and relaxing at least while we were there. We ate lunch outside at the Grille on Main and the food was excellent. We shopped at some of the local stores and of course ended up buying some clothing item. A very nice way to spend up to 1/2 a day eating and shopping at your own pace.

“NIce to know about.”
Reviewed 9 January 2014

This is a section of shops that are not really old. There is a nice coffee place with an great gift shop next to it. There is a nice small art gallery with local artists. The art is very nice.

“Nothing Special, Just Few Shops”
Reviewed 28 December 2013

We specially went there from Palm Springs to see the Old town around 5-6 pm but were disappointed. The shops had already closed and there was not much to see. The buildings are constructed in old style and may be that is why they call it old town. It is not a historical place or anything.
