Pretty landscape and pretty horrible parking during movie theater hours. Restaurants are tired and inconsistent. Shops have come and gone because of lack of continuity in offerings for this transient census. If you want to go to the movies, the River may fill the bill.

Take your pick of several good, fun restaurants -- all located along stretch of Highway 111, but separated from roads by sufficient space to avoid noise and fumes from vehicles.

Several very excellent restaurants...a theater...just want to get out of the house or your hotel. Stroll around the grounds, enjoy a meal with your family and friends or go to a good movie. The River has something for everyone.

We went to the movies at The River at Rancho Mirage. There are cafes and restaurants. There is some shopping. Parking can be a zoo; as witnessed by having to have valet parking. The water features - pools, cascading waterfalls - are nice.
