      Rancho “Marriage “ Mirage

      It’s hard to fault this City, though it IS suffering from a “political pull”.
      You won’t find a cleaner or well kept City in California. Stunning at night with beautiful uplit Palm trees.
      Streets are the best around. Plenty of money to go around. Neighbors CAN be friendly but the snow birds tend
      to come and go without much interaction. Grocery stores are few and far between, medical offices are aplenty,
      the mountains are stunning, as long as the smog doesn’t make it through the San Gorgonio pass.
      Which, as a matter of fact, is 8 months out of the year. That leads me to air quality issues, that are compounded
      by the negligence of management of the Salton Sea. A disaster for air quality for years to come.
      Don’t let anyone tell you the air quality in the Coachella Valley is good, hasn’t lived there in the last 20
      years. Yes, great strides have been made, but so has an increase in cars and people. They are losing the battle.
      Now, throw in Climate Change, the hottest summer climate becoming even more unbearable, the devil winds
      that usher in dirty air and dust daily, and you’ve got a place THAT IS’NT LIVABLE AT ALL!
      It also is just 3 miles from the San Andreas fault that is overdue of fracturing by about 150 years. Think about
      a 7.5 quake in the middle of summer 110 degrees plus plus plus and hopefully take pause.

      Rancho Mirage Has An Old Time Feel in a Thriving Modern Community

      Living in Rancho Mirage, CA, one of the things I have to remind myself not to take for granted is the beautiful views throughout town. In the early spring and late fall months I can enjoy a challenging game of golf, while taking in the beauty of the snow-capped mountains that surround the course.

      Many assume the weather of Rancho Mirage is just a boring, hot and dry scene day after day. That is actually not true though, as the surrounding mountains do help surround us with some moisture The nearby mountains offer winter activities such as skiing and snow tubing to just sitting around the fire and cuddling with a loved one.

      Entertainment comes in all forms here, with golf and tennis being popular during the summer months. You have your choice of restaurants ranging from authentic and embracing ones ran by a single family sharing their culture to the larger tourist draws that are located in the resorts surrounding town. Some might say that Rancho Mirage is what you make of it.
