About Palm Springs

Located in the Sonoran Desert of Southern California, Palm Springs combines vintage charm with modern luxury. Hot summer temperatures and cool, partly cloudy winters provide ample opportunity for outdoor recreation, such as horseback riding trails, hiking and biking. Known as the Golf Capital of the World, Palm Springs boasts more than 100 golf courses. Take a ride on the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, one of the steepest ascents in the world. Starting on the Coachella Valley desert floor, this breathtaking ride lasts eight minutes before reaching Mountain Station, located 8,500 feet above sea level. Relaxation more your style? Visit nearby Desert Palm Springs, where underground aquifers allow you to soak in baths drawn from 600-year-old mineral water. Plentiful dining opportunities satisfy locals with numerous brunch options, bars, lounges and pet-friendly restaurants. Palm Canyon Drive, a prime shopping location, features many vintage boutiques, as well as interior design shops. Abundant festivals keep residents entertained year-round. Held each fall, the golf cart parade features 100 unique entries, which draw about 25,000 spectators to El Paso Drive. For concert enthusiasts, the massive Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival occurs each year at the Empire Polo Club, located nearby in Indio, California. Palm Springs continuously celebrates the LGBT community. Now in its 35th year, Greater Palm Springs Pride annually plans a multi-day festival.
