The Desert Hot Springs center is approximately the area of Downtown Desert Hot Springs and 5 miles northeast of Palm Springs Amtrak.

Desert Hot Springs is located in Riverside City, California. The city is part of the geographic region called the Coachella Valley, also referred to as the Desert Empire. Between 2000 and 2010, the population grew from just over 16,000 to nearly 26,000 residents. In the 1970s, only about 2,700 people called Desert Hot Springs home, but the high rate of population growth is attributed to its rapid development. The name of the city comes from the more than 20 natural hot springs that are present in the area. Unlike many hot springs, those located in this area are odorless, making them more appealing to visitors. More from this guide...
