Planning Your Palm Springs Vacation

If you’re heading to Palm Springs for a vacation, there are a lot of great things to do while you're there. Do you enjoy art? Are nature and wildlife your jam? Do you love to golf? Palm Springs has it all. Here are five amazing things to do on your next trip.

Get on the Links – Golfing

Palm Springs is one of the most well-known areas for golf in the United States. People travel from all over the world to visit. If you’re looking for beauty, elegant design and a challenge, Palm Springs golf courses are the way to go.

Get out of the Heat – Aerial Tramway

The Palm Springs Aerial Tramway is a great way to get out of the heat. A ten-minute ride climbs nearly 6000 feet into the San Jacinto Mountains, where temperatures are far lower than the valley floor below. The views, both from the tramcar and the top, are spectacular.

Get on the Trail – Tahquitz Canyon

For those looking for a hiking adventure, but don’t want to exhaust themselves in the Southern California heat, this short trail hike is a great option. Covering just 2 miles round trip, you are rewarded with a beautiful 50-foot waterfall at the back of Tahquitz Canyon.

Get Cultured – Palm Springs Art Museum

The Palm Springs Art Museum features modern paintings, intricate sculptures and beautiful glass art from many popular artists. The exhibits, appropriately, focus on desert themes. If you love art, particularly focused on the American West and Native Americans, this is a great place to visit.

Get Wild – The Living Desert

The Living Desert is a beautiful conservation park. It combines elements of both a zoo and a botanical garden and works hard to mimic the desert environment common to Africa and North America. In this park, you can enjoy animal exhibits, beautiful gardens, hiking trails, rides and animal shows.

No matter what your passion, no matter what you enjoy doing, Palm Springs has something to offer every visitor. Try one of these fantastic activities and enjoy your trip.
