Welcome...

You've earned time away, why not discover a new day and a new adventure? Once you've tired of theme parks, endless movies, open your eyes to a place of wonder and surprise. Arrive on a Thursday evening in time for year-round Villagefest, a street fair that offers entertainment and food for young and old, as well as unique art and craft finds. Prepare yourself for a new journey, and decide where your adventure begins...

Kids R&R

Imagine yourself a pilot as you stand inside the "Flying Fortress" or fly a virtual plane at theAir Museum...take a rotating tram car from the desert floor up 8,700 feet on the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway to the peaks of Mt. San Jacinto... Show your friends who's boss as you race into a hairpin turn on the go-karts, or go full speed ahead on the bumper boats at Boomer's Park. Let the little ones paint a VW bug or shop in a pint-size grocery store at the Children's Discovery Museum, or discover the colorful and wild blown glass creations of California artist Dale Chihuly at the Art Museum.

Hiking the Real Outdoors<

Homework's done, it's time for a Palm Springs weekend...find your family's center again, where you can soak in the perfect blend of outdoor diversion and casual relaxation. Discover a year-round paradise with turquoise skies, purple mountains, and incredible hiking in the Indian Canyons...spot a roadrunner or perhaps a bighorn sheep while riding horseback...enjoy nature's own zoo at the outdoor Living Desert. Take a picnic, make a day trip, and uncover our national treasure, Joshua Tree National Park.

Water Parks and Sports

Spin and splash your way down Knott's Soak City cool rides… ride the hills and curves of the Palm Springs SkatePark, with replicas of the long forgotten pools which launched the popularity of skateboarding. Cheer on our hometown baseball team at the seasonal Palm Springs Power Stadium...tour the back streets with mom and dad on a bicycle...

Pools, Pools and more Pools

They're everywhere, those cool and inviting pools...every hotel has one but they're as different as the swimwear that surrounds them. From the wave pool at Knott's Soak City to your own desert isle...find your family's own oasis in the desert at one of the many spacious vacation condos…or splash the day away in a huge pool at some of Palm Spring's largest hotels. There is a pool chair here with your name on it...

Biking and Off Road Adventures

Roar along the sand dunes on the ATV with the kids...take a ride inside an Hummer or an open air Jeep into the desert backcountry...have mountain bikes delivered to your resort for a tour of the desert terrain surrounded in winter by snow-capped mountains, or leap back in time in a covered wagon drawn by mules.

Adult Games for Mom and Dad

Spend a few hours on that adult game of golf or tennis... then meet up for a family conference at the pool to vote on the next activity. Shop the boutiques and dine alfresco on Palm Canyon Drive, then enjoy some private time together at thecasino. End the perfect evening together with the family in a hammock under a canopy of stars...
