Catch A Ride
The trek from PSP to the heart of Palm Springs is super easy. It’s only a 10-minute ride to the city center on Tahquitz Way. No maps needed. How easy is that? If you haven’t already made your pick-up arrangements, cab await you curbside just outside the main entrance. Or if you prefer an Uber or Lift, they will meet you just to the left of the cabs as you exit along the median. Prominent signs will direct you there. For those renting a car, pick up your keys and car just steps away from baggage claim. There’s no transfer or shuttle required here. Just a nice stroll outside with a beautiful view of the San Jacinto mountains and that beautiful sunshine.
Have a Sip or a Nosh
If you strolled through that fast security line faster than expected and have some extra time, California Vintages Wine Bar pours enjoy a pre- or post-flight glass of wine. If beer is more your spirit, then hop on over to the Tap Room Bar. Nosh like a star at the aptly named Celebrity Bistro & Bar. Palm Springs is, after all, Hollywood’s playground, so this Bistro tells luminaries that they are in the (very) right place.
Save on Time
Would you prefer a 3-4 hour drive to/from LAX to Palm Springs or a 10 minute ride from PSP to you Palm Springs resort or residence? You might save a few bucks on the flight, but is it really worth it? Your getaway shouldn’t start or end with added time on a freeway fighting traffic. At PSP you are welcomed with over 350 days of sunshine and a stress free experience knowing how easy everything will be.
