The Location

Welcome To Palm Desert

The beautiful city of Palm Desert lies in the center of the Coachella Valley on the northwest edge of the Sonoran Desert. A stunning desert landscape is framed by the Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains to the west. The scenic views, favorable weather, and resort lifestyle primarily attract people from nearby metropolitan areas, northern and eastern United States, and western Canada. The terrain is well suited for popular local outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, swimming, tennis, and golfing.

Sun, Sun, Sun

The region offers the warmest winter weather in the western United States. Daytime highs average 71-81°F from December to March. Low annual rainfall enables the area to enjoy around 348 days of sunshine per year. Furthermore, the unique topography creates a micro thermal belt leading to even warmer winter nights in south Palm Desert, which includes the Ironwood community. If you enjoy sunshine, this is the place to be.

The Spirit Of Fun

The Spirited Lifestyle

The heart of Ironwood is a warm, welcoming residential community that is also surprisingly convenient to the best Palm Desert has to offer.
