Serving All of Rancho Mirage
Located in between Palm Desert and Cathedral city sits the legendary city of Rancho Mirage. Some of the famous inhabitants of this city of nearly 20,000 have included Frank Sinatra, Lucille Ball, Larry Ellison, and Spiro Agnew. Today, residents enjoy a warm climate on a year-round basis and almost no precipitation to speak of. Mountain ranges on three sides combine to create an insulating effect that keeps nighttime temperatures warm – even long after dark. Rancho Mirage is a beautiful place to spend a long weekend, and it also makes a tremendous place to live. Abundant activities like golf, theater, and fine restaurants keep residents entertained, while out of town visitors will find more to do than can be accomplished in a weekend.
