The resort city of Rancho Mirage is one of Coachella Valley’s nine cities. For years the economy relied on resort golfing and low paying rentals. Recently it has also included commerce and light industry near I-10 along with the upscale retail centers.
The Agua Caliente Casino, opened in 2002, is a popular destination. The Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians operates this resort which includes a 16-story hotel. There is also a theater for famous acts which opened in 2009. The casino is just outside the city border but Rancho Mirage and tribal leaders agreed to designate it as part of the city so it would have services from the police and fire departments.
