From palms to pines, ride the world’s largest rotating tramcar of the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway to experience a 10-minute breathtaking journey to access the pristine wilderness of Mount San Jacinto State Park. Guided nature hikes  start this  weekend.  


Skip the holiday traffic to Vegas, and check out the downtown Palm Springs Spa Resort Casino for table games, slots, and nightlife and dining.

Stay cool when you whoosh down a 7-story waterslide, swim in an 800,000-gallon wave pool or chill on the lazy river at Knott’s Soak City Water Park. A great way to start your summer tan!
