Art

The community is often known for its “artsy” culture. That’s mostly because we house the West Coast’s premiere boarding high schools for the arts, Idyllwild Arts Academy. Founded in 1946, Idyllwild Arts also has a long-standing summer program for all ages, which teaches everything from modern dance to basket weaving. IAA’s concerts and art exhibits are open to the public. See the events page for a myriad of cultural activities offered at Idyllwild Arts Academy and Summer Program.

The Art Alliance of Idyllwild fosters a thriving community of local artists with year-round events and a new visitors center and gallery, located in the Courtyard Building behind the Fort in the center of town.

Art galleries, unique shops and world-class restaurants offer wonderful options for visitors and locals alike.

Adventure

Much of the village itself is surrounded by National Forest, making a small residential footprint amid a large wilderness area. Hiking, camping, fishing, mountain biking, and rock climbing are popular activities. Visit the Idyllwild Nature Center with the kids and grandparents for easy nature walks and an impressive interpretive center to learn about local Cahuilla history and about native flora and fauna.
