Cathedral City Real Estate
Cathedral City or “Cat City” as the locals call it with affection, gets its name from the beautiful Cathedral Canyon to the south of the city, thanks to its natural rock formations that reminded the community founders of a cathedral. Cathedral City is one of the Palm Springs area’s most populous cities and offers a diverse population and some of the most affordable real estate in the Coachella Valley.
With the rest of the Palm Springs area cities within a few minutes’ drive, Cathedral City’s central proximity makes it a popular choice for those who want to be close to the hub of business and pleasure. Several large resorts such as the Lawrence Welk’s Desert Oasis Hotel Resort, the Cathedral Canyon Country Club and the Doral Desert Princess are sought after destinations for business conventions, weddings, educational seminars and family reunions.
Sports enthusiasts are not left out with the palatial Date Palm Country Club’s 18-hole “executive style” golf course and resort close by and the Big League Dreams Sports Park softball complex at Date Palm Drive and Dinah Shore Drive. Cathedral City is filled with rich native history and artistic culture, and home to some of the world’s most unique artisans. One of the cherished icons in town is the “Fountain of Life” located in the Cathedral City Town Square.
A composite of important cultural elements of both the Anglo and Latino cultures, the fountain symbolizes the desert’s natural history with sculptures of big horn sheep, lizards, tortoise, fishes, shells, wildflowers, birds, and other flora and fauna of both past and present. A Cahuilla basket encased in the intricate piece pays homage to the native Cahuilla Indian Tribe who have made their home here for several thousand years. Enjoy the natural beauty of this ancient enclave. Affordable and diverse, Cathedral City is one of the desert’s most interesting and culture-rich cities.
