El Paseo, the world-class shopping and dining district in the heart of Coachella Valley, is the perfect shopping destination for all your summer needs. From swimsuits and sandals to sunglasses and sunscreen, the El Paseo Shopping District has it all. 
 
Looking for a great view of the fireworks on the 4th of July? Head over to the second level at The Gardens on El Paseo for a premium view of the fireworks show put on by the City of Palm Desert at Civic Center Park. Watch from a balcony, or dine al fresco at Tommy Bahama and enjoy the show from their patio. 
 
The City of Palm Desert welcomes a new store to El Paseo, True You Medical, offering personalized, comprehensive care which addresses the root of the cause and stimulates healing from within. Services offered range from food and environmental allergy testing and nutrition counseling to vitamin IV therapy and hormone balancing.

Those ready to cannon ball into the deep end can pick up a new swim suit at 4 Seasons Swimwear, J Crew, or Tommy Bahama, to name just a few. Grab some new shades from Optical Shop of Aspen, Spectacular Shades, Sun Optics or the Sunglass Hut and find a comfortable and stylish new pair of sandals to get you through the summer at Cactus Flower Shoe Salon, Clark’s Shoes, or Mephisto. Finally, pick out a fun pool floatie at Diane’s Beachwear and you have everything you need to enjoy the day poolside. 
 
If you spend a little too much time in the sun, head over to The Body Deli to stock up on their all natural Cucumber Juice Toner with Kombucha and Aloe to relieve the burn and help you heal faster. They also offer a natural Sunstick with SPF 30 to protect your face with sunscreen and all-natural organic plant oils, toss one in your bag to keep you protected while you’re on the go.

While you’re shopping, you may need to take a break from the heat, grab a cold drink, and refuel at one of the many restaurants on El Paseo. Several restaurants are even featuring summer specials, including Sullivan’s which has a three-course “Sure Thing” prix fixe menu, daily happy hour 3:00-6:00 p.m. and all night on Thursdays and Sunday, as well as live music Thursday-Sunday starting at 6:30 p.m. Daily Grill has nightly meal specials, a monthly burger and beer special, and half-price wine on Thursdays. The Fix has extended their “Attitude Adjustment Hour” to 2:00 p.m. to closing, daily and Sammy’s Woodfire Pizza is featuring a Summer Salad Menu.
