Indio—the city of festivals

Indio’s nickname of “City of Festivals” is well-deserved—this fun-loving southern Californian community is home to the world-famous Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. Demand for Indio vacation rentals peaks in mid-April, when Coachella attracts the very best of rock, indie, and hip-hop to the city’s Empire Polo Club. Less well-known but no less popular is the Riverside County Fair and National Date Festival in February, a celebration of the sweet fruit that is one of the region’s major exports, featuring camel races, food stalls, and a spectacular Arabian nights pageant.

Things to do

Another side to Indio culture

The Coachella Valley History Museum offers the chance to discover another side of Indio’s cultural heritage. The 2-acre campus features a schoolhouse, a blacksmith’s shop, and displays of traditional farming implements, set among a variety of garden habitats. An adobe homestead dating from 1926 exhibits artifacts from the daily lives of the family who once owned it, while the California Date History Museum traces the history of the date palm, from its origins in the Middle East to its arrival in the Coachella Valley. The museum is open on different days according to the season, so check before you visit.

Activities

Starry nights in Indio

Indio’s flagship festival grew from modest beginnings, when a local promoter booked the Empire Polo Club for a Pearl Jam concert. The venue proved an ideal location for live music, and the success of the first Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival encouraged the organizers to aim for an annual event. The rest is history, with the biggest names in popular music drawing huge international crowds to this lush corner of the Colorado Desert. Tickets for this wildly popular event sell out quickly and you’ll need to be equally quick off the mark to be sure of the best choice of Indio vacation rentals.

Weather

Indio turns up the heat

Surrounded on 3 sides by mountains, the Coachella Valley has an enviable track record of dry, sunny summers and some of the mildest winters west of the Rockies. During the height of summer, temperatures regularly tip the high 90s, so Indio vacation rentals with a pool are the first to get booked up—thankfully, most accommodations benefit from private pools, patios, and barbecues to make the most of the hot summer nights. Add a hot tub and spa to your search and you’ll find a range of Indio vacation rentals that work just as well for winter getaways.

Natural features

Indio’s alternative fans

The 1,000 Palms Oasis is a unique feature of the Coachella Valley Preserve, a protected area that also contains the Coachella Valley National Wildlife Refuge. The oasis is fed by natural springs that support the growth of the California Fan Palm, the only palm tree native to the state. Groundwater trapped in the San Andreas Fault provides a secondary source of irrigation, creating a corridor of lush greenery that stretches along the desert floor. The freshwater ponds that form naturally along the fault line also support breeding colonies of the endangered desert pupfish.
