City of Indian Wells

In 1916 Caleb Cook, a pioneer of the valley’s date industry, moved to Indian Wells and established the first significant Deglet Noor grove. He was instrumental in driving the industry to great heights in a short span of time by importing date palms from Egypt, and mentoring novice date ranchers. Fast forward to present day Indian Wells and find the home of some of the country’s wealthiest retirees. Notables from the political, business and entertainment fields flock to world-class golf courses once played by entertainer Bing Crosby and President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Indian Wells is a scenic valley city that plays an important role as host to a number of cultural and special events, concerts and celebrated sports tournaments.

The Indian Wells Tennis Garden, a 16,000-seat stadium, is home to The BNP Paribas Open. The Renaissance Esmeralda, Hyatt Grand Champions and Miramonte resorts are a few of the world’s finest desert getaways, serving as conference destinations for groups ranging from Fortune 500 companies to the Republican National Committee.

In addition to preserving its resort and residential status, Indian Wells is on the fast-track to becoming the valley’s financial district, enticing brokerage, accounting and banking firms to build and settle within its city limits.
