Big Morongo Canon Preserve - Once a Native American village and later a cattle ranch, this preserve is a serene oasis around a natural spring generated by snowmelt from the surrounding mountains. Big Morongo attracts all manner of birds and animals to riparian woodland filled with cottonwoods and willows. You're likely to spot great horned owls and many songbirds here any time of the year.

Coachella Valley History Museum - Make a date to learn about dates at this museum inside a former farmhouse. The exhibits here provide an intriguing glimpse into irrigation, harvesting, and other farming practices; a timeline and other displays chronicle how the industry emerged in the desert a century ago.
You are visiting a desert so keep in mind that you should drink plenty of water whether you are hiking the nearby hills or just hiking next door to one of the many casinos the area has to offer!
