Where in the world is Vista Santa Rosa, California? When Canadians come to the Palm Springs Valley, and they come in droves to escape their cold winters, I would venture to say that not a single one of them knows where Vista Santa Rosa is. I would go even further and say that many Palm Springs Valley residents don't know where it is either! How can that be?
Vista Santa Rosa is an unincorporated approx. 20 mile stretch of rural land in the Eastern Coachella Valley. Date Farms, agricultural fields, horse training facilities, polo pony breeding farms and wide open land..that's Vista Santa Rosa. Bordering Indio on the North, La Quinta on the West, Thermal on the East, it's a little world all it's own.
Only a 15 minute drive from the heart of La Quinta, when you are in VSR, it feels like you're in another world. Sweeping vistas as far as you can see. Palm Trees, craggy mountains, irrigated crop land, white fences with grazing horses, yet less than 1/2 hour from Interstate 10 to take you East to the Casinos and all their entertainment, or West to the Palm Springs Airport.
VSR is under the La Quinta Sphere of Influence meaning La Quinta may at some time in the future decide to incorporate, but for now, it's just a sleepy, little rural patch of land and residents like it that way!
