Coachella Valley Arts and Music Festival is considered one of the most iconic music festivals in the world. Ladies in cut-off shorts, bikini tops, and flower crowns flounce around posting photos to Instagram, while bros bounce along to their favorite bass-shaking EDM. Everyone looks like they are rolling, and if they're not rolling, they probably work in the "industry" and get to eat sushi from Sugarfish in the VIP area. Coachella offers amazing music, cotton-candy hued sunsets, palm trees, and a beautiful desert landscape, but there's more to that gorgeous landscape than you think. It's not just a backdrop. There are many cool things to do in Indio that don't involve Coachella. If you're not feeling the festival one day, or are in the area but not a festival-goer, you should definitely hit up one of these cool spots.
