La Quinta is a town in the Coachella Valley, between the Santa Rosa Mountains, in southern California. Though it land was used for water-gathering in the late 1800's, the area was declared uninhabitable, and the town was only established in 1926 as a golf resort for Hollywood celebrities.

Today, La Quinta is known as a resort town, nicknamed "The Gem of the Desert" for its oasis-like aura. It is the site of one of the top golf courses in the country. It is also reputable for real estate, being the location of many luxury mansions and villas.
