Perfect Palm Desert
The greater Palm Springs area is an oasis of resort cities including Palm Desert, La Quinta, Indio, and Rancho Mirage. The area offers sumptuous hotels, award-winning gold courses, and luxury spas. The weather this time of year averages 73 degrees-still warm enough for golfing, swimming, and tennis for which the area is known. There are countless ways to enjoy the desert. The Living Desert Museum is a must-see, filled with unique desert wildlife and plans. Or, explore the artistic side of the desert with a visit to a gallery or stroll along El Paseo, with its fascinating public art and unique shops and boutiques. Take in a show: the McCallum Theatre for the Performing Arts offers musicals, concerts, dance, opera, and more. The desert is threaded with wonderful trails that reward hikers with spectacular views of the Coachella Valley. And of course, no trip to the desert would be complete without a challenging game of golf. The Palm Springs area is a wonderful day trip that will enhance your Southern California vacation. With so much to do, see, and enjoy, Greater Palm Springs is a perfect oasis.
