Palm Desert is a city in Riverside County, California, United States, in the Coachella Valley, approximately 14 miles (23 km) east of Palm Springs and 122 miles (196 km) east of Los Angeles. Take a break from the city and head to Anza-Borrego Desert State Park and Joshua Tree National Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Old Town Temecula (in Temecula) and Mount San Jacinto State Park and Wilderness (in Idyllwild). There's still lots to do: get to know the resident critters at The Living Desert Zoo and Gardens and take in the dramatic natural features at San Andreas Fault.
