Below is some general information about Indio:
Indio is a city in Riverside County, California, United States, located in the Coachella Valley of Southern California’s Colorado Desert region. It lies 26 miles (42 kilometers) east of Palm Springs, 70 miles (113 kilometers) east of Riverside, and 125 miles (201 kilimeters) east of Los Angeles. It is about 86 miles (138 kilimeters) north of Mexicali, Baja California on the U.S.-Mexican border. The word Indio is Spanish for Indian.
The population was 76,036 in the 2010 United States Census, up from 49,116 at the 2000 census, an increase of over 50%, and well above the approx. 10% growth for the U.S. during the same decade. Indio was once referred to as “the Hub of the Valley,” the city Chamber of Commerce jingle in the 1970s. Since then, it has become an exurb town of economic value and sunbelt growth potential in the easternmost urbanized area of Southern California.
The climate of the Coachella Valley is influenced by the surrounding geography. High mountain ranges on three sides contribute to its unique and year-round warm climate, with some of warmest winters west of the Rocky Mountains. Indio has a warm winter/hot summer climate: Its average annual high temperature is 89.5 degrees Fahrenheit (31.9 degrees Celsius) and average annual low is 62.1 degrees Fahrenheit (16.7 degrees Celsius) but summer highs above 108 degrees Fahrenheit (42 degrees Celsius) are common and sometimes exceed 120 degrees Fahrenheit (49 degrees Celsius), while summer night lows often stay above 82 degrees Fahrenheit (28 degrees Celsius). Winters are warm with daytime highs often between 68Ð86 degrees Fahrenheit (20Ð30 degrees Celsius). Under 4 inches (100 milimeters) of annual precipitation are average, with over 348 days of sunshine per year. The hottest temperature ever recorded there was 125 degrees Fahrenheit (52 degrees Celsius) on July 6, 1905. The mean annual temperature is 75.8 degrees Fahrenheit (24.3 degrees Celsius).
Because there are numerous festivals and special events held annually in Indio, the Chamber of Commerce deemed Indio’s official nickname to be: “The City of Festivals.” Year round, the Date Festival/County Fairgrounds’ Grandstand Arena Stadium is the site for live music concerts (mostly amateur bands), 4 by 4 monster truck rallies, rodeo or horse riding events, and camel races during the National Date Festival. Two major annual festivals are the National Date Festival and the Indio International Tamale Festival. Riverside County Fair and National Date Festival is held each February at the Riverside County Fairgrounds, located at Highway 111 in the heart of Indio. Since 1947, this festival has celebrated the date fruit crop of the Coachella Valley. The Tamale Festival is held each December on the streets of Old Town Indio and has earned two Guinness World Records: the largest tamale festival (120,000 in attendance, Dec. 2-3, 2000) and the world’s largest tamale, over 1 foot (0.3 meters) in diameter and 40 feet (12.2 meters) in length, created by Chef John Sedlar. The 2006 Guinness Book calls the festival “the world’s largest cooking and culinary festival.”
The Coachella Valley History Museum and Cultural Center on Miles Avenue in Indio, has a two acre campus, which currently includes the Smiley-Tyler House, built in 1926, the 1909 Schoolhouse, and the Date Museum dedicated to the history and development of the fruit (the only date museum in the world), plus gardens and archives preserving historical artifacts of the Coachella Valley. Indio Hills Palms, state park property, are native California fan palms that thrive in many locations but rarely in such numbers as in the canyons of the Indio Hills. Here, along a line where the San Andreas fault captures groundwater that nurtures the palms, is a wild parkland which is part of the adjacent Coachella Valley Preserve. The park contains some fine native palm groves that include Indian, Hidden, Pushawalla, Biskra, Macomber and Horseshoe palms. The nearest palm groves are relatively easy to reach from the trailhead and parking area 4 miles (6 kilometers) north of Indio. There are currently no marked access roads to the property.
