Indio Real Estate
The eastern Coachella Valley city of Indio is also known as “The City of Festivals” thanks to several signature events during the year that have made this busy agricultural city world-famous. The annual Riverside County Fair and National Date Festival, the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, the Western-themed Stagecoach Music Festival and the International Tamale Festival contribute to Indio’s reputation as the place to have fun and enjoy the festivities. The Empire Polo Club where most of the main events are held is one of the finest and largest event venues in the desert.
The City of Indio is one of the larger cities in the Palm Springs area and located 23 miles to the east of Palm Springs. The word Indio is Spanish for Indian, and the city is well-named for its rich Cahuilla tribal history of more than 3,000 years. Indio started out as an old west railroad town a century ago but soon became famous for its remarkable agriculture.
The perfect climate for growers, Indio is a place where onions, cotton, grapes, citrus and dates all thrive. That same climate made Indio a popular health resort town as well, and it is still coveted for its clean and dry aridity. Indio is also an official National Bird Sanctuary thanks to the seasonal migration routes that cross over Indio en route to the nearby Salton Sea. The natural Sonoran beauty that is an important part of the Indio landscape is home to exotic native flora and fauna with miles of hiking and horseback riding trails in virtually all directions.
Developments of spacious new homes and professionally-designed golf courses now surround Indio, and local Native American tribes have built two magnificent casino resorts, Fantasy Springs Resort Casino and Spotlight 29 Casino making Indio a playground as well as a great place to call home.
