For the best shopping in the Palm Springs area, you’ll want to make a day out of visiting Cabazon or Palm Desert, both about a 25-minute drive from Palm Springs. Cabazon’s Desert Hills Premium Outlets are only for the most serious of shoppers, with more than 100 brand-name outlet stores selling everything from designer jeans to cookware. Gucci, Burberry and Jimmy Choo are just a few of the labels you’ll find at Desert Hills.
Another must-shop district is Palm Desert’s El Paseo, the Coachella Valley’s answer to Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. This one-mile shopping locale is filled with everything from heavy-hitters such as Saks Fifth Avenue to local boutiques selling classic Palm Springs resort wear. You’ll also find specialty shops focusing on unique products such as cigars, cooking spices and accessories for your furry friends.
