We drove through Palm Springs it is gorgeous. Our first time there. We want to go back ASAP (we are from Europe and new in this neck of the woods - California that is)
We had a fun outings.
Welcome. This Valley is a tourist's Heaven in many ways.
Go online and study things a bit first.
The best time for a visit is about Mid September to early May. But as you noticed it's getting hot now. Summer days can reach a regular 115 F to a whopping 124 F! So, Winter good, Summer not so good. But golfing is alot cheaper then!
The Palm Springs Air Museum is a great destination all year round.
The Palm Desert McCallum Theatre has many great Broadway shows.
There are many great Casino's now with Hotels all over the Valley.
Indio, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, Cathedral City and Palm Springs are the best destinations. Palm Desert is the best and most expensive with it's El Paseo shopping and affordable mall. Rancho Mirage has 'The River' shopping experience as a close 2nd. Then old Palm Springs is OK for it's kitsch shopping. Live music and great food are found in all these places. Then come the Festivals. look those up online. There are lots!
Hope to see you out here.
