Desert Oasis: Coachella California!

I've lived in Coachella for over three years and it's unlike any city I've been to so far! Its laid-back, artsy atmosphere made it very easy for me to assimilate into my daily routine!

Transportation at times can be tight, but overall the highways are very well maintained and navigable. Also, throughout the year, the city and nearby counties host many enjoyable art and music festivals! I especially enjoy the shops and restaurants on Harrison Street! Best areas in Coachella I feel are definitely Palm Springs and the Historic Downtown. Downtown is so pleasant that I would often make day trips, to visit, during the weekends. Just be careful, shopping at the stores on Harrison street can get expensive, as they are very nice. I always seemed to find something I couldn't do without.

Living in Coachella has been such a pleasure! The lovely atmosphere, friendly neighbors, and mild winter weather made for an easy relocation here from the frigid Northeast coast.
