Cabazon has 2 different Outlets although I doubt most people even notice the difference. The Desert Hills Premium Outlets has over 120 Stores, and has been a premier shopping destination for years. Big Tourist Buses bring International Shoppers here where they can find some great bargains.
Desert Hills Premium Outlets is one of the Outlet Centers, and Cabazon Outlets is right next to it, and is very small....I haven't counted, but I think there are under 20 stores in the Cabazon Outlets.
From Los Angeles you would take the Fields Road exit and go left. There's a McDonalds before you get into the main parking lot if you're hungry, or you can eat in one of 2 food courts. The smaller Cabazon Outlets don't have food, but they do have coffee and pretzels. Both of these Outlets are separated by a street, so most people might not realize they have left one Outlet Center for the next.
If you're coming from Palm Springs get off at Seminole Drive- And be VERY CAREFUL!!! Be very careful of the new round-about as there are no stop signs....everything is Yield.
This is a picture taken last week 7-27-08 of the new round-about at Seminole Drive. These cars are getting off the freeway, and are turning right by the A&W Restaurant. If you're going to the Casino stay to the right.....if going to the Outlets....you will go part way around the round-about by the Rubys Restaurant.
Seminole Drive is the exit for the Morongo Casino, and the Bowling Alley. If you're going to the Outlets.....go around the round-about and follow the signs. There are a couple restaurants here where you can eat, a gas station, and the World Famous Hadley's Fruit Orchards.
If you've never had a Date Shake I would suggest you might want to stop and try one before going shopping or gambling:)
