They say you never forget your first date—especially when it comes to the sweet kind. In this episode of Chill Chaser, Amy Yerrington discovers these sweet treasures at Shields Date Garden in Indio.


Shields Date Garden in Indio has been growing dates in Greater Palm Springs since 1924. Visitors can wander through the outdoor gardens, grab a fresh bite to eat at the café and catch a screening of the cheeky film, “The Romance and Sex Life of the Date.”

For a little extra chill, be sure to try Shields’ signature date shake, made with date crystals and vanilla ice cream.
