An Incredible Desert Experience. Greater Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley are a year-round playground — no matter what your favorite activity might be. Enjoy the beautiful desert landscape from the heights of the aerial tram as you ride up Mount San Jacinto. Choose from more than a hundred golf courses throughout the Capital of Golf of the western United States. Soak up culture with a trip to an art museum or a tour of mid-century modern homes, and then learn about the history of flight at the Palm Springs Air Museum. Have a desert adventure in the iconic Joshua Tree National Park. Explore the area’s amazing natural beauty on a hike or float above it in a hot-air balloon. Rejuvenate your mind and body at one of Palm Springs’ world-class spas nourished by the unique, natural hot springs and mineral pools in the area. Catch a flick at the amazing Mary Pickford Theatre or enjoy a live show at one of the nearby casinos, then head for fabulous food at one of the local authentic Mexican restaurants.
