About Palm Springs
A trip to Palm Springs, California, means endless days of lounging on beaches, shopping for clothes, dining in restaurants, and playing in the water. You'll find Palm Springs rentals with a hot tub, which can help you relax after a long day of sightseeing, as well as budget-friendly accommodations and rentals that allow pets.
Things to Do in Palm Springs
Start your vacation with a ride on the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway. You'll get a bird's-eye view of the city, as well as the surrounding water and mountains. At the top, you can drink in the beautiful views, and then indulge in an upscale dining experience. Nature lovers shouldn't miss the Moorten Botanical Garden or the Living Desert Zoo and Gardens. Enjoy an up-close-and-personal encounter with local flora and fauna while the warm California sun beats down. The nearby Mount San Jacinto State Park also offers a thrilling adventure, especially if you enjoy hiking and other outdoor activities. If you're feeling ambitious, set your sights on the soaring San Jacinto Peak.
Palm Springs Climate
Palm Springs experiences little rainfall each year, so you can anticipate plenty of sunny days during your vacation. The hot, dry climate necessitates plenty of water and sunscreen, so don't leave your Palm Springs rental with a hot tub unless you're duly prepared. A lightweight, long-sleeved shirt will serve you well if you plan to spend several hours outdoors.
Palm Springs Events
If you visit Palm Springs during January or June, don't miss the annual Palm Springs International Film Festival. You can view hundreds of full-length features in local theaters in January or screen short films during the summer. Alternatively, visit the city during February to sample delicious Greek cuisine during the Palm Desert Greek Fest, or push your visit to March for the La Quinta Arts Festival. Other must-see events in Palm Springs include the Swing'n Dixie Jazz Festival, the Film Noir Festival in June, the Mall Walks in September, and the Rancho Mirage Restaurant Roundup in November. If you're visiting during the holidays, don't miss the Holiday Concert at the Palm Springs Convention Center early in December.
Dining in Palm Springs
You're never far from sumptuous cuisine, no matter where your Palm Springs rental with a hot tub is located. Trio Restaurant on Palm Canyon Drive is the perfect choice if you're seeking comfort food, while the Lulu California Bistro offers a romantic setting and hearty but casual fare. Plus, you can take advantage of the evening Happy Hour.
Palm Springs Nightlife
Your fun in Palm Springs doesn't have to stop when the sun goes down. The Village Pub, for instance, is the perfect place to order a longneck and watch the game. However, if you're in the mood for live music, don't miss Melvyn's Restaurant & Lounge at the historic Ingleside Inn. Alternatively, Bardot Palm Springs offers music, drinks, and a vibrant atmosphere.
