Things to do

Break into an elite estate (just kidding, buy a ticket)

The Sunnylands Center and Gardens is a winter estate built by philanthropists Walter and Leonore Annenberg in the 1960s. World leaders and Hollywood stars were entertained there, and now, the public can check it out, too. Travelers can peruse exhibits in the visitor center, or book a guided tour of the house and the magnificent desert gardens surrounding it. And for the little squirts in your traveling party, there's the Children's Discovery Museum of the Desert. Exhibits have enchanting titles, like Build Your Own Race Car, Lie Detector, and Vet Pet Station.


You can't really fry an egg on the sidewalk! Or can you?

Due to its location in the Coachella Valley, surrounded on 3 sides by mountain ranges and sitting on a south-sloping valley floor, Rancho Mirage is arid and warm. In fact, you're looking at the warmest winters in the western U.S., with the lowest low temps at a still-lovely 60 degrees. The most popular times to visit are between January and April, but if you book a Rancho Mirage vacation rental in summer, you can score a real bargain. Just be prepared for afternoon temps of around 110 degrees.
