Palm Springs is a desert oasis unlike any other. Set in at the foot of the San Jacinto mountains, this modern and vibrant city has been a playground for Hollywood for more than half a century. In the early 20th century, those looking for a healthy climate made their way to Palm Springs because of the city’s dry heat and luxurious resort hotels. Today, there is an eclectic food and drinks scene, and booming downtown, endless outdoor activities, and a thriving diverse community. Palm Springs is also home to one of the largest collections of Mid-century Modern architecture in the world. The weather is usually warm and sunny, so come prepared to relax and enjoy yourself when not taking part in the city’s many cultural activities. Though many come to Palm Springs just to sit by the pool with a cocktail in hand, Palm Springs travel offers much more than just that. Read our Palm Springs travel stories and guides to help plan your next trip.
