While there are many popular destinations in the State of California, Palm Springs is famously known as a holiday destination for the rich. However, we’re here to show you that Palm Springs offers much more than warm weather and luxury hotels.

Escape the Winter Cold

Since Palm Springs is located in the middle of the desert, it’s popular to visit in the colder months for a couple of days to soak up the sunshine. THis is what makes January through April Palm Springs’s peak tourism season. However, the weather in the desert does not get too cold, making it a perfect place to hike or sit by the pool while enjoying the beautiful scenery.

Downtown Palm Springs

While downtown is slightly more touristy, it’s a bustling place to visit, with shops, art galleries, and restaurants. You will surely be busy all weekend if you spend a couple of days downtown.

Outdoor Activities

With such great weather, plenty of outdoor activities are situated in Palm Springs’ beautiful sunshine. Palm Springs is an hour from the well-known Joshua Tree national park. A perfect day trip activity where you can park and enjoy many hiking trails. You can even camp, climb, ride or horse, or ride your bikes within the national park. In addition, Joshua Tree is known to be one of the best locations for stargazing in the country.
