Travel easily with the free El Paseo Courtesy Carts

Taking you to and from along the famed El Paseo shopping district and its popular stores, art galleries, and restaurants, the golf cart-style Courtesy Carts are the perfect way to be chauffeured and focus on what’s important (the shopping, of course!)

Linger Over Lunch

Searching from store to store for that perfect something can wear you out. Refuel and refresh with a leisurely lunch break at one of El Paseo’s many cafes and restaurants. Not only will you feel better, but trust us: there’s no nicer setting than an El Paseo patio to enjoy a great sandwich, a cool glass of lemonade or a fresh cup of coffee.

Make Time For Culture

Not only will you find a variety of outdoor art installed along El Paseo as part of Palm Desert’s Art in Public Places program, but you’ll also find countless treasures within the area’s art galleries. And you don’t have to be in the market for a masterpiece to enjoy it – looking is always welcome here. El Paseo is also the home to the El Paseo Art Walk on the first Friday of ever month, where you can tour the galleries with other art lovers.

Try it at night

Come during the day for your retail fix, but don’t forget about El Paseo when the sun goes down. At night, the focus shifts and this shopping Mecca becomes a hub for dining hot spots and outdoor lounges.
