Indian-Wells began as an Indian village centered around a hand-built well, and has grown into one of California's wealthiest cities! Located in Riverside County, just 17 miles from Palm Springs, Indian Wells is known for its world class golf courses, tennis and luxury resorts and spas. This upscale community is home to the Indian Wells Country Club, which over the years has included such members as Bob Hope, Bing Crosby, Dean Martin and Arnold Palmer. The city has 36 championship golf holes, a state of the art tennis arena, and four major resorts, and is host to several internationally televised sporting events each year. Indian Wells also boasts first class shopping and dining at its restaurants and boutiques, and has theaters, museums and nightlife to enjoy. "The Gardens" is a 200,000 square foot natural environment with an open-air garden theme that offers high end shopping options. Visitors may want to visit the nearby Living Desert, or take a guided jeep tour and see Indian canyons, ancient trails, and desert wildlife and palm groves. For a special treat, view the magnificent desert at sunrise or sunset in a hot air balloon! Or, do nothing at all but relax poolside in the perfect weather and be pampered at one of the spas. This is what makes Indian Wells so popular as a premier desert resort destination
