Here’s a perfect spot for a date. Seriously, no pun intended. Shields Date Gardens in Indio is a fantastic local spot to take your special lady for a little romance. Sex too!

You may have passed by on 111 and Jefferson and noticed the giant Knight.


Your lady will love the nostalgic merchandise in the gift shop. Grab a couple date shakes and head into the theatre to watch “The Romance and Sex Life of the Date” which has been re-done and is a great documentary about how dates are cultivated. Did you know that 95% of all the world’s dates are grown right here in the Coachella Valley?

The movie is just long enough to sip your date shakes down and steal a few kisses too. Shields also sells amazing stuffed date platters and a variety of other dried fruits. Even if you don’t have a “date” you should still stop in and enjoy one of the Valley’s most famous road side attractions.

For more information go to: You can also have Shields famous dates delivered to friends and family anywhere in the world.

Drive safe and enjoy the scenery.
