Life and vacationing is wonderfully unique at the breathtaking escape destination of Palm Springs. Year round weather is distinctly better. The sun is definitely warmer. Stars appear brighter. And the sky seems bluer. As the gateway city to the Coachella Valley, the Palm Springs name remains the most famous desert community, certainly in California and maybe internationally, as well. It has often been referred to as the playground of the stars. Admittedly the down valley towns of La Quinta, Palm Desert, Indian Wells have more prestigious golf courses and upscale shops but Palm Springs with its glamorous history has a lot to offer that those communities just don’t provide. And it’s slightly amusing that often times when major events are held in other down-valley cities, the national print media and television often refer to the event as being held in “more easily recognized” Palm Springs. We’re sure those press coverage decisions have rankled the host cities for decades. Read full article online in Living Lavish Magazine >>>

With the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival shining the spotlight on Palm Springs in recent years, the city has reawakened and is now the place to find an emerging pool and music festival scene. Fuelled by trendy hotels, weekend pool parties, summer rates and a new “day club” at the Hacienda Cantina and Beach Club, which debuted last month for Splash House, there is a new youth-orientated crowd making a splash in the city this summer.
The city of Palm Springs is experiencing a tremendous renaissance as an ultra-cool destination for people of all ages to come and relax, rejuvenate and enjoy our year-round sunshine and laid-back lifestyle. When it comes to fun in the sun, Palm Springs truly is like no place else.
Capitalising on Palm Springs’ burgeoning music and pool party phenomenon, the brand new Hacienda Cantina and Beach Club is a fresh concept to Palm Springs. By day, it is a sun lover’s paradise with an intimate desert-style pool scene with outdoor bar, cabanas and live DJs spinning dance tracks. By night, the party really gets going in the swanky Vegas-style lounge and DJ driven dance room.

To learn how to get an old-school haute-holiday glow, April Long visits Palm Springs, the home of timelessly chic hot-weather beauty. Long before Coachella lured legions of caftan-clad music lovers to its environs, Palm Springs, California, was a hot spot for high-class hedonism: In the 1950s, legend has it, Frank Sinatra would hoist a Jack Daniel’s flag outside his estate to alert neighbors Cary Grant and Jack Benny that cocktails were being served at his famous piano-shaped pool; the owners of L’Horizon hotel—a midcentury-modern marvel where Marilyn Monroe once caused a stir by showering alfresco—were known for throwing three-day-long parties in which guests were whisked by private jet from Palm Springs to San Diego’s Kona Kai Club, with a stop for dinner in Disneyland. Photos of the town in its heyday are resplendent with swimsuit-clad beauties and tuxedoed crooners—all of them rendered even more glamorous by the desert’s preternaturally luminous light, which comes in at an angle over the mountains, glances off the surrounding sea of sand and rock, and suffuses the landscape and its inhabitants with a warm, eternal-holiday glow.

It was Dinah Shore Weekend in Palm Springs — or the Dinah, as it’s known — five days of Sapphic revelry that every April draws some 15,000 women from around the country to this sun-washed city 90 miles southeast of Los Angeles. On Saturday evening, however, the hottest ticket in town may not have been the L Word Pool Party, but a relatively low-key cocktail reception hosted by the Palm Springs Art Museum to benefit its new Architecture and Design Center.

In our experience Wet ’n Wild operations are largely the same wherever you go, but certainly, Palm Springs is an ideal location for one. Open in spring and summer, Wet ’n Wild Palm Springs includes all you could ask for in an outdoor water park and a sure-fire activity when in Palm Springs with kids: plenty of slides and tube rides, daredevil slides with sharp drops, small slides for the younger set, a large water clubhouse/play area, and most importantly for my kids: a lazy river and wave pool.
