Spend the weekend in BMW cars shredding tires, melting brakes, and honing your driving skills. Choose the full day Club M School or the half-day Sampler package of ultimate driving at the BMW Performance Center at Thermal. While you are driving, your family can enjoy the many sights and activities that the Coachella Valley offers.





Spend the whole day on Saturday at the Performance Center driving a variety of shiny new M cars. You’ll have lots of time to take your driving skills to the next level, then use those skills on the Thermal tracks. ($905) Sunday is a half-day Sampler event. You’ll be able to compare the ride, response, handling, and power of a variety of new BMWs when you participate in the skid pad competition, autocross, drag racing and lead/follow track laps. This is the perfect event to introduce your friends and family to BMWs. Novice drivers are encouraged to push the envelope just a little, while the more experienced driver can try some more sophisticated driving. ($250) Register Now


Enjoy the world-class restaurants at the resort or venture out and explore some of the many restaurants in town that offer everything from casual to fine dining. Join us at the La Quinta Saturday in the early evening for Happy Hour (hors d'oeuvre d’oeuvres and no-host bar). Then take the short drive to Old Town La Quinta, where we have reserved the streets for all-BMW parking. Stroll through the shops, get dinner in one of the many restaurants, chat with members of the BMW Clubs International Council, catch up with club friends, enjoy the mountain views, and look at cars.


The desert can surprise you with its beauty and variety. Set your own agenda from a mix of world-class golf, a mid-century modern architecture tour, Native American art, Tahquitz Falls hiking, museums, shopping, and more. Or simply enjoy the desert and relax at the La Quinta's award-winning spa, and many pools. There's no denying this is a great weekend getaway for couples and for families.Learn More


Who doesn’t love a road trip? If you have the time, consider making this a bigger adventure and visit many national and state parks to and from the Palm Springs area.

Need to Fly? No problem. Arrive at Palm Springs International Airport (PSP) just 30 minutes drive from the La Quinta Resort. While in town, there are city shuttles, Uber, Lyft, and taxi services to help you get around.

Consider carpooling or even renting a large van for 6-10 people. Sharing the drive will make the trip more fun. We'll be happy to provide you with the contact info of possible ride-shares.
