Palm Springs

Palm Springs welcomes visitors to its new dynamic downtown with stylish hotels, new fashionable restaurants, new chic shops and boutiques, new fun entertainment venues, as well as public spaces for gathering, celebrating, and relaxing. With warm days and balmy nights, this complements the ambiance of Southern California. With 360 days of sun-kissed weather and drop-dead gorgeous scenery, it’s no wonder Palm Springs is like no place else and a comeback as Hollywood’s playground with a growing nightlife, burgeoning art scene and edgy vibe. Wearing a favorite vintage outfit, shopping for midcentury modern treasures in Uptown Design District, dining alfresco in downtown bistros under the warm sun…now that’s a visit.

It could be the surge of super hip (and becoming super large) events like the Palm Springs International Film Festival, Modernism Week, and Coachella and Stagecoach Music Festivals.  Or the openings of incredibly unique museums such as the Architecture and Design Center in downtown Palm Springs.

This is a place to relax.  The colors are saturated by the warm desert light, and the living is easy. Nestled at the base of the majestic San Jacinto Mountains, the City of Palm Springs is the ancestral home of the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians. The streets, lined with palm trees, are perfect for exploring boutique shops, art galleries and museums while soaking up the warm sunshine.

Soar to the top of Mount San Jacinto on the world famous Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, play a round of golf at Tahquitz Creek Golf Resort, or hike the ancient palm groves of the Indian Canyons. In the evening, stroll the year round Villagefest, then relax with a swim under the evening stars.
