Rest and relaxation await you when you deplane at Palm Springs International Airport. This resort town is the perfect destination for those who wish to unwind and escape the hustle and bustle of the Bay Area. Thanks to the ubiquitous mid-century modern architecture, you may feel as though you’ve traveled through time rather than simply southward in California. If R&R isn’t what you’re looking for, there’s plenty of partying to do too. Spring break revelers have flocked to the area since the 1950s and the booming festival scene in nearby Indio keep seasonal tourists trending young.
When you think of the rolling greens of golf courses, the desert likely doesn’t come to mind. But the Palm Springs area is home to over 100 golf courses—thanks in no small part to the snowbird and retiree population that call the area home. Golf not your game? Head to the skatepark or the ice rink instead.
For supremely Palm Springs sightseeing, explore one of the seven neighborhoods that have historical or cultural significance. In the 1930s, the Movie Colony neighborhoods emerged as big-screen stars of the era built getaways there to escape from L.A. That’s not the only area celebs have called home—take a walk around the Las Palmas neighborhoods and Deepwell Estates for more sightings of famous faces and facades. If you’d prefer flora and fauna over man-made scenery, spend a day at the Moorten Botanical Garden. Specializing in cacti, Moorten boasts a rare feature for a botanical garden: a cactarium.
