Color comes alive in the City of Eternal Sunshine, whose rich Hispanic heritage shines through in community events like Día de los Muertos and authentic Mexican cuisine you won’t find anywhere else in Greater Palm Springs, From Jalisco, a landmark Coachella restaurant that has been a favorite of many since 1980 to El Tranvia, owned by Oscar Ventura, whose grandparents once sold tacos out of a pushcart in their native Zamora, Mexico.

Learn how growers cultivate their crops, many of which end up on your plate at some of Greater Palm Springs’ finest restaurants.
