Palm Desert is home to plenty of great shopping – like the famed El Paseo district, including the renowned Gardens on El Paseo shopping center – but if you’re looking for a great deal, too, look no further. You’ll find some of the best outlet shopping in the country just outside the Coachella Valley– so you can shop in style without spending a fortune.
While you won’t find an outlet mall in Palm Desert proper, you will find some of the nation’s best outlets just 45 minutes away in Cabazon, just west of Palm Springs. Cabazon is home to the Desert Hills Premium Outlets, a sprawling mall filled with countless high-profile designers at deeply discounted prices, as well as its more intimate neighbor, the Cabazon Outlets. Combined, these two outlets make for a great destination in their own right, or the perfect stop if you’re driving to or from Palm Desert from the Los Angeles area.
From outlet stores to high-end retailers, Palm Desert has plenty of retail options for every visitor, so be sure to download our Shopping Map before you head out.
