Coachella is known as the “Eternal City of Sunshine,” and for good reason! It’s always sunny in Coachella, and that’s why it makes for the perfect place to rent an RV. Be sure to bring your sunblock though, because average highs in July get up to 107 degrees Fahrenheit. This rural desert community has really taken off in the past few decades. In the 1940’s its population was only 1,000. But now it’s up to over 40,000! You may think that this city is where the well-known Coachella brand got its name, but the town actually gave its name to a grapefruit! The Coachella grapefruit is a special breed of grapefruit grown in Coachella. It even has a highway devoted to it as well; Route 111 that runs through the city of Coachella is named Grapefruit Boulevard. The eastern part of Coachella is actually below sea level, and it sits between the Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains National Monument and Joshua Tree National Forest. Book an RV in Coachella and you’ll be in the perfect spot to see the area’s major attractions.
The Great Outdoors
Coachella is the perfect place to pick up your RV rental if you want to visit both the Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains National Monument and the Joshua Tree National Forest. The National Monument stands at its highest at 10,834 feet, and offers popular trails and some of the most breathtaking views of mountains and valleys. The Joshua Tree National Park offers lots of hiking trails as well, but here you’ll see some of the most unique rock formations and of course, the famous Joshua trees. If you’re looking for somewhere with water, head south from Coachella to the Salton Sea. This sea lies 236 feet below sea level, and you may want to be careful coming here, as there is fear that this sea may soon be gone after another earthquake. You could also head your Coachella rental RV north and wind up at the Thousand Palms Oasis in the Coachella Valley Preserve. Here, you’ll find over 25 miles of hiking trails waiting to be explored, and you can even hike along the San Andreas Fault Line. Coachella is the perfect spot to set up your RV rental, since it lies in the middle of The Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains National Monument, the Joshua Tree National Forest, the Salton Sea, and the Thousand Palms Oasis.
If you’re looking to just stay in town, one of the best places to park your RV rental in Coachella is The Vineyards Luxury Motor Coach RV Resort and Golf Course.
