When planning your next California timeshare vacation in Palm Desert, they want to remind you of the three R’s – rest, relaxation and RETAIL and invite you to shop til you drop!  Palm Desert is the home to luxury couture shops, locally owned boutiques, charming art galleries and dazzling jewelry gallerias offering something for every style – and every budget.


El Paseo Courtesy Carts

Palm Desert makes it easy for California timeshare shoppers to travel the famed El Paseo shopping district via free courtesy, golf cart style carts providing the perfect way to be chauffeured while enjoying all the art galleries, restaurant and stores!

Following you’ll find some suggestions on where to start exploring all Palm Desert has to offer in shopping and art:


El Paseo Shopping

El Paseo is without a doubt Palm Desert’s premier shopping destination with an impressive mile long shopping district known as the “Rodeo Drive of the Desert”.  The shopping on El Paseo offers a mix of more than 300 shops filled with jewelry, apparel, art and home décor.  With more than two dozen restaurants, cafes and bakeries, many with outdoor terraces and patios, this is the perfect place for California timeshare owners and guests to take a break from shopping for lunch, coffee or a glass of wine.

If you happen to be enjoying your California timeshare in March, be sure to mark your calendar for the annual Fashion Week El Paseo 2014 to be held March 16 – 22 which showcases the latest trends and styles from some of the country’s most up-and-coming designers.


El Paseo

The Gardens on El Paseo is where you’ll find 200,000-square-feet of all things fashionable and chic. California timeshare owners find this major shopping destination replete with luxury department stores such as Saks Fifth Avenue and designer brands like Coach, Tiffany and Louis Vuitton.

El Paseo Village is located only one block west of The Gardens on El Paseo and is where shoppers enjoy even more upscale brands including Apple, Juicy Couture, and Kate Spade.

The Shops at El Paseo located at the west end of the shopping district features fine restaurants, celebrated designers and specialty retailers including Burberry, Gucci and Ralph Lauren.

Art along El Paseo adds another dimension to your shopping experience with more than 20 different galleries featuring collections of Western, modern, abstract and Renaissance art.  El Paseo is also the home of an artwalk on the first Thursday of every month, where California timeshare owners and guests can tour the works with other art lovers.

Art in Public Places is an innovative program that has brought more than 150 works of art to the Palm Desert collection.  Not only will California timeshare owners find stunning, larger-than-life sculptures, but they will also discover countless objet d’art throughout the City’s landscape – like bus shelters designed with desert-modern sensibility or serene sculptures trickling water.

The Art Place invites visitors to experience a lively evening of art and entertainment where visual and decorative arts are on display during the first Friday of each month, October through May.

The Fran Sarkowsky Sculpture Garden

Palm Springs Art Museum in Palm Desert features an architecturally distinctive, LEED-certified 8,400-square-foot building named The Galen that presents ongoing and temporary exhibitions of internationally important art in different media, including sculpture, painting, photography, and new media. The Galen building is surrounded by the four-acre Faye Sarkowsky Sculpture Garden that features more than 10 significant sculpture works on view surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens which is open year round with no admission fee.  The 250,000 square feet of sculpted, rolling landscape covered with native plantings, winding pathways, and water features is the most important sculpture garden between Los Angeles and Phoenix.
