Blog.Columbia.com: Palm Springs A Desert Oasis During Fall and Winter

  • Feb 21, 2017

The simple allure of Southern California presents itself as an unassailable fact the minute you step out of the Palm Springs Airport: big desert sky, steep mountain peaks, and the intoxication of the fresh desert air.

 

Forget Disneyland or the beautiful beaches. This is where SoCal really lives.

 

The greater-Palm Springs area (the town proper and the other hamlets that make up the vast Coachella Valley) never feels overcrowded. The wide, palm-tree-lined boulevards make driving easy—you’ll want to rent a convertible to take advantage of views of the vast desert and towering San Jacinto Mountains. The weather’s nearly always beautiful; you can swim, hike, and dine al fresco year-round.

The girls and I had such an amazing time in Palm Springs over the weekend to celebrate my birthday. We stayed at the most incredible house; our own little Enclave in the Sun.  The house  featured floor to ceiling glass walls, a fire pit, hot tub, and a gorgeous pool.We were originally looking at staying at a hotel, but I prefer renting a house instead. It becomes your own home away from home. You don’t have to deal with resort fees, strangers, finding a parking spot, etc. We fell in love with this vacation spot and never wanted to leave!

The local weatherman was singing a decent rendition of Sinatra's Summer Wind at the Purple Room in Palm Springs, Calif., the first night I arrived in this desert city. My friend Rosemary and I were sipping something called a Purple Orchid (bubbly with blackberries). The Purple Room -- a longtime popular restaurant and musical venue -- once was a hangout of the Rat Pack gang: Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Dean Martin. Today, their black-and-white photographs adorn the walls, recalling the years when this place was more than the hip nostalgic throwback it is now in the 21st century.

Palm Springs -- like the Purple Room -- is a bit of a hip nostalgic throwback itself.

In the golden age of Hollywood, Palm Springs was the weekend destination of choice for celebrities such as Frank Sinatra, the Gabor sisters, and Cary Grant. The endless sunshine and arid climate also made the area attractive to retirees, but Palm Springs has been upping its cool factor thanks to an influx of boutique hotels (hello, Ace Hotel) and music festivals including Coachella and Joshua Tree. Leonardo DiCaprio recently purchased the Dinah Shore estate here. Beyond the festivals, this desert retreat makes an ideal weekend escape, especially for architecture buffs who come to appreciate the area's stunning examples of midcentury modern architecture. And thanks to a new, direct flight from JFK on JetBlue, getting to this desert oasis is easier than ever.

The music festival Coachella as well as the stunning natural landscape are a couple of reasons why this is a great place to visit

Driving along Hwy. 111 towards Palm Springs from the greater Los Angeles area in the early evening twilight and one truth becomes perfectly clear: the Coachella Valley is really dark, the surrounding mountains foreboding and shrouded in mystery. And, apparently they like it like that, and keep lighting to a minimum. It makes the contrast between the mass that is greater L.A. and this particularly magnificent sky that much greater.
