The date industry (including Shield’s Date Gardens) is in the east end of the Coachella Valley, over 30 miles from Palm Springs. The importance of dates as an agricultural commodity is evidenced by the naming of our annual county fair as the Riverside County Date Festival, held in Indio. Visitors looking for the authentic date experience won’t find it in Palm Springs. Check out Oasis Date Gardens.

01/16/20 - A refreshing end to our day’s travels, this was surprisingly delicious. (I mean I like dates and I like ice cream, so maybe not so surprising.) Westmorland Date Shack has add-ons available, but I am glad we went without to enjoy the date flavor.
