Express UK: 10 best things to do in Palm Springs

  • Jan 14, 2015

I’m not a huge fan of snakes so was reassured when Bob, the guide leading my exploration of the San Andreas fault zone, informed me that I shouldn’t worry, because he’d be carrying a golf club in case one of Palm Springs’ rattlers put in an appearance.

As it turned out, the purpose of the club wasn’t to batter any venomous vipers to death, but to “gently lift them out of the way”.

In the end, it wasn’t needed, although we did spot one enormous, dozy rattler curled up under a mesquite bush.

A jeep tour was the ideal way to learn about the desert landscape surrounding Palm Springs, 100 miles east of Los Angeles. Bob, a guide for Desert Adventures, was a mine of information. I learned that beneath Palm Springs is an enormous underground aquifer, created during the last ice age, when the Coachella valley was underwater.

Lavish Living Magazine: Palm Springs Getaway

  • Aug 1, 2014

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 >>>
