Had heard great things about the old town, but visited during the day and came away disappointed. We weren't there to eat and there wasn't much to see or do - not a great selection of restaurants. I guess it'll be more lively in the...More

We have been living in La Quinta since Old Town was built. It had great potential but even through many iterations it has not met its goal as a downtown place to be. On the plus side it has the BEST pizza and bar food...More

Love the restaurants in this area. Also has some great shops. Not much for kids to do, but you can easily find kid-friendly restaurants.

Old Town is actually sprawling. It's somewhere that's fun to look around and window-shop. The two main businesses in Old Town that do a lot of business are "Old Town Coffee" and "Stuft Pizza." Both of which are very good and usually busy.

We were home shopping and wanted to see the Old Town in June. 123 degrees today. Very cool little spot with shops and restaurants. Easy parking. We ate a lunch at the Grill on Main.

The lighting of the Christmas tree in Old Town will have already happened. Sunday mornings usually has a farmers market in old town but I am sure that won't happen on Christmas morning. I recommend going to the old La Quinta... More
