Spend the weekend in BMW cars shredding tires, melting brakes and honing your driving skills at a half-day Sampler package of ultimate driving at the BMW Performance Center in Thermal. While you are driving, your family can enjoy the many sights and activities that the Coachella Valley offers.





Spend the Saturday morning at the Performance Center driving a sampler of shiny new BMWs. You’ll hone your skills drag-racing, autocrossing and drifting, then use those skills on the Thermal track. Even if you’ve attended this event in the past these are new cars, most of which you haven’t test driven yet. Compare the ride, response, handling, braking, and power of these 2022 vehicles to the one you currently drive. This is a perfect event to introduce your friends and family to BMWs. Even if they never want to attend a High Performance Driving Event, they will get a feeling for how the size and build of a car affects the way it drives. Novice drivers are encouraged to push the envelope just a little, while the more experienced drivers can try something a bit more sophisticated.($235)REGISTER NOW


Enjoy the excellent restaurants at the resort, including their farm-to-table restaurant where the food is grown locally and some of it is even grown on site. Or venture out and explore some of the many area restaurants that offer everything from casual to fine dining. Saturday evening, during the all-BMW car show at Old Town La Quinta, choose a local restaurant for dinner. There are options to meet every palate and wallet. Stroll through the shops and catch up with friends while live music plays in the background.


The desert will surprise you with his beauty and diversity. You can sit by one of the pools, play golf, or enjoy time at the Spa. There are places to go and things to see from the elegant to the totally eccentric. Visit the nearby National Parks, take a self-driven tour of mid-century architecture, take a trip to the zoo, hike, bike, shop or circumnavigate the Salton Sea. It’s all waiting for you and we’ve put together a list to help you chose.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.
