About Palm Springs
Things to doPeople staying in Palm Springs vacation rentals will want to get out and explore all that the city has to offer. Play a round of golf at one of the many golf courses carved into the landscape for some quiet relaxation. Away from the links, Joshua Tree National Park offers dusty pathways and rugged trails for hikers to discover. The palm groves of the Indian Canyons are another must-see. They are part of the Agua Caliente tribal lands and are a great way to see the beauty of the land. For breathtaking scenery, ride the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway to the top of Mount San Jacinto or walk through the Moorten Botanical Garden where a variety of flowering cacti are displayed. Spend time indoors for a burst of air conditioning while visiting the Agua Caliente Cultural Museum and Palm Springs Air Museum before heading back outside to see approximately 450 animals spread out over 12,000 acres at the Living Desert Zoo & Gardens.
ShoppingFrom hip boutiques and vintage shops to outlet stores and weekly street fairs, there is no shortage of shopping in Palm Springs. Palm Canyon Drive is the main drag for retail therapy and it is lined with unique local businesses and interesting eateries.
