Feel the sunshine...feel the majesty...feel the excitement....Palm Springs, California, the gateway to your sun-kissed adventure. Allow your spirit to be energized in an atmosphere that can only be found right here. Let the pristine desert air fill you with an energy that is nothing short of miraculous. Sun and fun in the never ending allure of Palm Springs.

Today is a sun-lover's dream...sitting beside a brilliant pool where the bright blue sky and golden sun dictate everything...after all, the outdoors is calling. Toss your towel on the lounge chair with your name on it...then rejuvenate with a massage... indulge in a luxurious après soleil mineral soak...stroll the boutique shops and galleries....swing and dineon gliders at an alfresco bistro.

Choose from an amazing array of artisan crafts at the weekly VillageFest street fair. Dine under the lush olive trees on the patio of a romantic restaurant...soak in the glow of the village from a horse-drawn carriage. Share a nightcap and a game of chance at the spectacular downtown casino. Then steal a kiss over sparkling champagne by the fire before one last midnight swim under the stars.

Hike within the lustrous colors of the ancient canyons, once home to the Agua Caliente people. Views are spectacular with tours on horseback...jeep...Hummer...mountain bike. Capture the spectacular views from the rotating car of the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway...the magnificence that is the Joshua Tree National Park...the immense desert wilderness of Anza Borrego, California's largest state park...or the Santa Rosa/Mount San Jacinto National Monument. Push to the extreme...repel down shear mountain cliffs...hot air balloon above the green oasis below...skydive or hang-glide with certified pilots...roar through the dunes on ATVs.

Bright days and cool mountain breezes... perfect your swing at lush golf courses or red-clay tennis courts... or bicycle through the mid-century neighborhoods. Pair a crisp lemonade with a game of bocci... or a crisp chardonnay on a perfectly manicured croquet lawn. Cheer on the home team with hot dogs under cool misters at Palm Springs Power summer baseball games.

Catch the luminous stars on the red carpet at the Palm Springs International Film Festival...swing to the sounds of Jazz Under the Stars...walk the celebrity challenge at the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic. Take your seat as the music begins at the evening outdoor concerts at the casino. Race your way through the streets...it's Tour de Palm Springs. Plan for each visitwith special events like December's Walk of the Inns and Festival of Lights Parade...American Heat Bike Weekend in October...February's Modernism Week... Restaurant Week in June.

The bright orange sun turns to scarlet and settles behind the mountain...the twinkling lights of the inns and boutique hotelsshimmer against the nighttime pool. Relive the Hollywood past where the stars of yesterday...and today...find a quiet calm from the rush of the world. Steps away from downtown...each offers the uniqueness of a fireplace, private patio, or perhaps an al fresco shower.
