    The City of Palm Desert operates the El Paseo Courtesy Carts. The shuttle runs along El Paseo and is free of charge. They kept stopping to ask if I needed a ride, which was nice. Seems they were keeping a eye out for any one strolling up and down the drive.

    FROM LOS ANGELES
    * Take I-10, East bound
    * Exit Monterey, heading South
    * Cross over Hwy 111, and take the next LEFT turn onto El Paseo

    Scenic routes from Hemet/San Jacinto and Temecula

    Driving either east or west over the San Jacinto and Santa Rosa mountains is very scenic in terms of dramatic geological formations and desert flora. From Palm Desert's El Paseo, drive west up into the mountains on Hwy 74, past Hwy 371, until it will eventually take you into Hemet and San Jacinto. If you turn left at hwy 371, you'll drive through the Cahuilla Indian Reservation, and with an addition jog make it to Temecula, the most southernly of California wine regions (and generally speaking the least likely to product a good bottle of wine). See web link for map.

    El Paseo Drive Courtesy Shuttle

    El Paseo Courtesy Shuttle in Palm Desert

    Along El Paseo is a courtesy shuttle which will pick up folks for free and drop them off along the drive. Most young people will easily walk from one end of El Paseo to another, but for senior citizens or families the shuttle may come in handy.

    Rent a Car

    If you're flying into Palm Springs airport, rent a car. You will need it to get around to the various towns in the valley. They are not expensive (we rented a full size car for 7 days for less than $150). Once you rent your car in the baggage area, you can walk right outside to a lot where all of the vehicles are located.

    Crossfire!

    I really enjoyed driving in and around the Palm Desert / Palm Springs area in this nice little car. Surprisingly our two suitcases fit easily in the back!
