From the photos on the walls to the trophy-filled display cases to the putting green for diners awaiting a table, Arnie's essence infuses this restaurant. It's a big, clubby place good for groups. Among the well-crafted main courses are Arnie's homemade meatloaf, double-cut pork chops with potatoes fondant, and the popular mac and cheese. The wine list is top-notch, and there's entertainment most nights.” – Fodor's Travel

Really interesting flavors and vegan options. Why do we use Liquid nitrogen (-321°)? Because this allows us to freeze ice cream to order, creating less ice particles and no air which results in a smoother, creamier ice cream. The base of our ice cream is 100% Organic with no preservatives, no additives and we use local fresh ingredients to create our flavors.

The Salton Sea is one of the most enigmatic places in the Southwest–an otherworldly lake in the barren, naked desert, sandwiched between the Coachella Valley and the Mexican border. This former resort region had its heyday during the early 1960’s, when it was a bustling place filled with weekend revelers from SoCal. Wear closed shoes and walk on the beach. Great place for bird watching. Go to the Salton Sea Sonny Bono National Wildlife Refuge.

Day trip. Plan 45 mins. to an hour drive up there. Go up Highway 62 through Yucca Valley. Eat lunch or dinner on the way out at Pappy & Harriet's in Pioneertown and tour the old westen movie sets. Or, drive all the way across the park, exit on the east side and take I-10 for an hour back to La Quinta. Joshua Tree National Park is a vast protected area in southern California. It's characterized by rugged rock formations and stark desert landscapes. Named for the region’s twisted, bristled Joshua trees, the park straddles the cactus-dotted Colorado Desert and the Mojave Desert, which is higher and cooler.
