Palm Springs offers a desert paradise on the United States West Coast, with hot springs, upscale resorts, golf courses, and fantastic mid-century architecture. Here, you can shoot 18 holes at Arnold Palmer championship golf courses at Palm Desert's Classic Club or get up close to dinosaurs at an outdoor public art display. You can go hiking or horseback riding at the Indian Canyons or see real WWII-era combat aircraft at the Palm Springs Air Museum. For indoor activities, try your hand at a local casino or visit an art gallery.

    Kids love to check out the native animals at the Living Zoo and Gardens, and couples love the romance of the Palm Springs Art Museum. Everyone will enjoy taking a scenic aerial tram ride to get stunning canyon photos for your social media feed from high above. In contrast, you could simply take a day off from tourist activities and relax with a cocktail by the pool, enjoying the beautiful weather of Palm Springs.
