Blinding blue skies and swaying palm trees characterize this Californian desert city. Indian Wells is an oasis of sport and leisure between the Joshua Tree National Park and the Hollywood enclave of Palm Springs. It is a place synonymous with tennis, holding one of the annual ATP tournaments. It also boasts being close to a dozen golf courses and country clubs for both serious sporting events and relaxed weekend retreats, in addition to vast areas of mountain wilderness for outdoor adventurers.

Things to see

For serious tennis fans, the Indian Wells Garden will likely be the first stop on your itinerary. If you come during the tournament, then you will be treated to matches between the world’s top players and a dazzling, electric atmosphere. At any time of year, a tour of the grounds is a great experience, and you might catch some smaller matches as well. If golf is more your sport, you are equally spoiled in Indian Wells – you will need to plan a long stay in order to hit all the major golf courses here, including the Indian Wells Country Club, one of the highest-ranked in California. After playing the 36-hole course, you can enjoy a deserved drink on a sunlit veranda. When you need some retail therapy, look no further than the nearby El Paseo Shopping District, where you can browse over 300 shops, including designer outlets and independent boutiques.
