I love warm, hot weather and the carefree, luxurious vibe of Palm Springs! If you like to golf, drink or just lounge around a pool then this is the perfect weekend playground.

Palm Springs, ah. California modern. Resort living with mojitos by the pool. Desert canyons to hike through with hidden springs and slow-moving tortoises. Date shakes. Hot springs with stars in the sky overhead. Just two hours from LA, if you don't hit traffic.

I truly enjoy the city of Palm Springs. There are so many options here that you can take advantage of such as the hot mineral springs as well as their Downtown area. The weather is great for golfing, hiking, and multiple outdoor activities. You can keep busy with the casinos and different events that you have going on a weekly basis.
Its about two and a half hours from where we are located at, but its well worth the drive.

It’s hot in the desert in June so this oasis of a destination hosts its Pride in November. Pride is November 2-3; Info: http://pspride.org/
Insider tip: If you’re driving in, be sure to stop at the Desert Hills Premium Outlets in Cabazon, California a few miles outside of Palm Springs with 100s of amazing shops. Info: http://www.premiumoutlets.com/outlets/outlet.asp?id=6
The Hacienda is one of the most upscale properties in town with a beautiful pool area and great service. Info: http://www.thehacienda.com/

Palm Springs used to be the upscale town out in the desert promoted by Bob Hope because he owned most of it. With a climate dry and warm, and sizzling hot most of the summer, it was a the ideal vacation spot for the snowbird. That all probably peaked in the 1980s.
Now Palm Springs is still a good place for Snowbirds, but the luster has become a little tired and tarnished, as things have moved farther south east in this valley to newer construction in Indian Wells and La Quinta, and big rollers have dried up a lot with the economy.
Still, it is a short drive out from the LA Basin or San Diego to enjoy a little time to rest and relax. It just isn't what it used to be.

They called it the Playground of the Stars. It has the San Jacinto Mountains right there so take your hiking shoes. Scenically its an interesting mix of lush palm trees in the dessert with hard rocky mountains. Nice spot to get away from the city for a weekend.
