If you like sculpture, then you will want to visit the Farye Sarkowsky Sculpture Garden next door to the Chamber of Commerce. Tere are a couple of very good restaurants there, too. Longing for Italian, we dined at la Spiga, al fresco, warmed by overhead heaters, enjoying a very good meal and

It is home to an excellent golf course, ranked among the top 100 in the United States. Te famous La- Quinta Resort and Club dating back to 1926 is steeped in history and romance. It features a famous restaurant called Morgan’s in the Desert.
