Ideally located in the heart of the Coachella Valley, with Palm Desert and Cathedral City as direct neighbors, Rancho Mirage has earned a deserved reputation as a postcard-perfect playground for the wealthy, celebrities, and, perhaps most famously, presidents. Presidents Eisenhower and Ford, Frank Sinatra and Ginger Rogers are but a few who have made Rancho Mirage their home, with more recent occupants of the White House visiting throughout the years.
Broad, landscaped streets lead the way to and from fabulously luxurious guard-gated country club communities, golf-oriented enclaves, and even the Ritz-Carlton, which welcomes mesmerizing valley and city-light views from its perch high in the hills. Small in size compared to its valley neighbors, Rancho Mirage’s intimate setting is home to an award-winning library and observatory, theaters, restaurants for all occasions and budgets, and a network of trails and parks.
With convenient access to the Palm Springs International Airport, it’s easy for residents and visitors to jet out to places all over the world and equally easy to return. The city, known for its luxurious lifestyle, also provides top-tier healthcare at its Eisenhower Medical Center, which is rated a “Best Hospital” by U.S. News & World Report.
Rancho Mirage is renowned for golf, with 13 courses located throughout the city. The legendary Thunderbird Country Club brought golf further into the valley from Palm Springs and set the stage for premium golf course living as we know it today.
Mid-Century, Mediterranean and classic ranch-style homes are featured throughout the city, with many newer custom estate showcasing indoor/outdoor-enriched contemporary floorplans that maximize views, light and entertaining.
Beyond golf, tennis, hiking and biking, residents and guests of Rancho Mirage experience its famous Sunnylands Center & Gardens, which was created by extraordinary philanthropists Walter and Leonore Annenberg and still welcomes presidential visits to this day.
