    Aren't there just houses within walking distance?

    I know there is a Wal-Mart in Palm Springs, but that's approximately 20 miles away.

    Yeah, Coachella is surrounded by a bunch of houses. You might be in for some long walks if you decide to do that.

    There's plenty of grocery store, rite-aid, wal mart type stores, but you won't want to be walking there. Getting a ride is easy though, i brought people with me every run i made the past few years.

    I've got a mini-van that seats 6. Maybe I'll try doing that too.

    Not if you are planning to stir up revolutionary thoughts amongst the minimum wage slaves.

    I just checked Google Maps.

    Closest Ralph's is 1.9 miles away on Jefferson. Wal-Mart is 3.2 miles away on Highway 111.

    I don't shop at Walmart. Unlivable wages for their associates means I'll never spend a penny there.

    I don't even think I've ever been inside a Walmart.

    I remember seeing a Walmart and maybe a Costco on the drive up last year.

    Yeah, I try not to shop there either. They're anti-union. When a group of employees try to form a union at a store, Wal-Mart just closes that store.

    ....but sometimes my husband drags me there.

    We used the Wal-Mart in Palm Springs after Coachella last year because we needed to pee.

    I have no idea why Ralph's has the reputation of being California's "slummy" grocery store. I went to that exact one and was impressed. Great fruit trays and natural smoothies, prepackaged sandwiches, reasonably priced alcohol...

    Yeah, it's funny, there are these helpful little things with lines and writing on them that help you find directions to places you want to go.

    But shhhh... it's a secret! Don't let the word get out!

    Go down Jefferson (going towards the I-10 Freeway, so pretty much going back where you came from) then take a left ONTO Highway 111 (there's a Home Depot at that corner). Two or three more streets down..there will be a Wal Mart Supercenter. It's open 24/7. If you're walking...I'm estimating it'll take about 2 hours. I just drove by the Polo Grounds back to my house and it took me about 5 minutes to get from the Polo Grounds to Highway 111.
    Hope this helps. ;D

    theres a super wal-mart in la quinta (about 3 miles away) as well as target/best buy/petco/costco/wallgreens/bofa/chevron/trader joes/restuarants etc.... allot has sprouted out here since coachella 06, but the area around the polo fields is mainly residential.

    it seems like that place is growing fast. i would imagine that a lot of the money for that city comes from the festival.

    They also have really big horse and dog shows all year round which I'm sure are good for business, too.
