AN OVERVIEW OF INDIO
Indio, “the City of Festivals,” is the municipal anchor for the Eastern Coachella Valley cities, including Coachella, Mecca, Salton City, and Thermal. Indio is located east of Palm Springs, just past the city of La Quinta on the Highway 111 corridor.
One of the oldest cities in the Coachella Valley, Indio began as a railroad town, serving as the mid-way point for the Southern Pacific Railroads trek between Yuma, Arizona, and Los Angeles. Indio quickly grew into an agricultural center due to its arid climate, year-round sunshine, and the ability of local farmers to attain irrigational water through artesian wells and later via the Coachella Valleys branch of the All-American Canal.
WHERE FESTIVALS AND CROPS GROW
Agricultural production continues to be a dominating economic driver in the area with crops as diverse as bell peppers, onions, and citrus. Notably, Indio became known for its unique ability to produce dates from date palms transplanted from the Middle East. Currently, the date fields of the Eastern Coachella Valley produce about 95% of the dates consumed in the United States. The Coachella Valley History Museum in Indio has a fascinating collection of early city buildings and contains a wealth of information on the history of the entire Coachella Valley, including the early history of the city of Indio and its agriculturally influenced growth.
