Those jokes about the Coachella Valley being “God’s Waiting Room” aren’t going to end anytime soon.
The area, already home to oh so many seniors, will add even more elders over the next five years, according to data from the Coachella Valley Economic Partnership. In fact, the area will see a larger percentage increase in the over 70 set than the county, state, or country.
We are aware that the Coachella Valley is home to a number of retired residents, which we would guess skews the age…
So, be sure to be even more careful on the roads (and storefronts) and don’t expect to find a seat available at Happy Hour after 3 pm anywhere ever again.
