No Cost Day

Rancho Mirage has so many free offerings that it will be hard to decide where to begin.  Let us make a few suggestions for an enjoyable day and night of free activities!


Start your day with a sunrise hike!  There’s no better way to appreciate the natural beauty of Rancho Mirage than with a refreshing hike. The Rancho Mirage trail system features six distinct trails, catering to varying difficulty levels, ensuring there's something for everyone.
Rancho Mirage also welcomes your four-legged friends to join in on the adventure. If they're leashed, your furry companions can enjoy the trails alongside you. So, bring them along and create unforgettable memories together.

Tennis Courts

After your hike, visit one of our five beautiful parks. Indulge in a delightful picnic amidst the serene surroundings, soaking in the tranquil atmosphere of our parks. If you're in the mood for some physical activity, engage in a friendly match of tennis or pickleball on the well-maintained courts.


If hiking isn’t your thing, perhaps Yoga or Tai Chi is more your style. Sunnylands Center & Gardens offers free yoga and Tai Chi in the Gardens. After you’re all relaxed and refreshed, keep that tone by strolling over a mile of accessible trails throughout the nine-acre gardens, including a beautiful labyrinth. Sunnylands also offers free guided bird walks, garden walks, and so much more. Visit the Sunnylands website for information about these free activities and more seasonal free events like family day, music, and films in the gardens.
