Spend the weekend in BMW M cars shredding tires, melting brakes, and relaxing in the Coachella Valley. Choose a full day or half-day of ultimate driving at the BMW Performance Driving School at Thermal. While you are driving your family can take a group tour around the Salton Sea or a Private Safari at The Living Desert and Zoo. We have great rates at the La Quinta Resort, a special guest speaker, and lots of other things for you to do and see.





Half day Driving Experience on Saturday ($245). Test drive new BMW M cars, one after another, to compare the ride, response, handling, and power of each. Includes lead/follow track time, skid pad competition, autocross, and drag racing! A great way to introduce your friends/family to the joy that is driving a BMW. Two full day Club M-Schools on September 23 and 24. Put BMW M cars through extensive exercises designed to take your driving skills to the next level, then use those skills on the new Thermal tracks. ($870 - $910) Register Now


Join us in the evenings for hors d' oeuvres and no-host happy hours at the La Quinta on Friday, and for dinner at the Performance Center on Saturday. Come back to the hotel Saturday event for a great dessert buffet and a guest speaker. There's no better way to experience the club than to meet the incredible people who are the club-people like you! Friday and Sunday nights you can explore some of the many restaurants in town that offer everything from casual to fine dining.


The desert can surprise you with its beauty and variety. Set your own agenda from a mix of world-class golf, a mid-century modern architecture tour, Native American art, Tahquitz Falls hiking, museums, shopping, and more. Or simply enjoy the desert and relax at the La Quinta's award-winning spa, and many pools. There's no denying this is a great weekend getaway for couples and for families.Learn More


Who doesn’t love a road trip? If you have the time, consider making this a bigger adventure and visit many national and state parks to and from the Palm Springs area.

Need to Fly? No problem. Arrive at Palm Springs International Airport (PSP) just 30 minutes drive from the La Quinta Resort. While in town, there are city shuttles, Uber, Lyft, and taxi services to help you get around.

Consider carpooling or even renting a large van for 6-10 people. Sharing the drive will make the trip more fun. We'll be happy to provide you with the contact info of possible ride-shares.
