Coachella is referred to as the “City of Eternal Sunshine.” The area is largely rural and its community is largely based on agriculture that is in the desert and one of California’s fastest-growing cities in the late 20th century. The area on the eastern half of the Coachella valley sits below sea level. A Saltwater lake called the Salton Sea lies at about 227 miles below sea level. The city shares its name to the Coachella grapefruit, and the town’s limit stretches to State Route 111 and has been referred to as Grapefruit Boulevard in its honor.

Coachella’s high average household income, healthy local economy, an abundance of jobs, safety, and family-friendly activities are a huge selling point of the city.
