El Paseo. The main shopping district in the area, El Paseo houses some of the finer shops around. It's like a miny Rodeo Drive so be prepared to open your wallet. Try to avoid this at all cost since you have numerous other things to do, why waste your time shopping in the heat. Sit at the pool, play some golf or tennis, get drunk in a closet, anything but shopping!!!!!!!!
The stores along the El Paseo shopping area are the desert equivalent to Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, so be prepared for your money to disappear very quickly. A better place to shop is the Desert Hills Outlet center on I-10 about 20-25 miles west of Palm Desert.
