If you’ve never been to Palm Springs, you haven’t seen one of the greatest getaways in all of California. It’s a 94-square-mile haven in the desert that’s bursting with nightclubs, golf courses, trendy restaurants, 5-star hotels, and eclectic shops to browse after a tasty meal. Of course, if you have been there, you’re likely looking forward to returning as soon as possible.
Palm Springs is about 110 miles from Los Angeles, and it’s sandwiched between three picture-perfect mountain ranges: the San Bernardinos, the Santa Rosas, and the San Jacintos. Throughout this unique resort area, the architecture is creative, and major Hollywood celebrities are often out in full force. You could visit museums and art galleries, attend famous music festivals, play tennis, watch semi-pro baseball games, and stroll through extensive and fragrant gardens. Given that this city is very welcoming to pedestrians and averages more than 350 days of sunshine annually, plan on spending lots of time outdoors.
