    Located between Palm Springs and Rancho Mirage, Cathedral City sits in the Coachella Valley area of southern California. Unlike the name suggests, Cat City (as the locals call it) does not actually have a cathedral, the name instead originating from the ‘Cathedral Canyon’ rock formation to the south of town, which was said to have a cathedral-like appearance. Once a housing area for low-income families, since 1990 Cathedral City has undergone substantial regeneration to become a popular tourist spot and the home to some of the Californian Desert’s best holiday rental villas.

    The Californian Desert is huge and diverse, and an increasingly popular holiday destination for a many different types of vacation. Although many people use Cathedral City as a commuter base from which to visit trendy Palm Springs, there are attractions in and around the city itself.

    Cathedral City is also a popular destination for sports lovers, with a number of golf courses being the highlight. These include the 58-par course at Date Palm Country Club, the former home of the Phil Harris Golf Classic.

    More family fun options can be found on the outskirts of the city, including the Boomers! Family Fun Park, the Ice Garden Skating Rink and the Mary Pickford Theater – the latter being a small museum dedicated to the famous actress.
