Palm Springs, CA in a nutshell

A lot of travelers without prior information will be surprised to reach Palm Springs and not find too many springs surrounded by palm trees in the city. In fact, they would surely be surprised that the area is actually set on the desert, with miles and miles of dry, desert lands surrounding it. Still, the medicinal hot springs of the area are the ones often visited by travelers so that it is still justifiable for the city to retain this name. Palm Springs is a great venue for outdoor fun and adventure, with activities like hiking, horseback riding, and mountain biking popular in the mountainous and desert areas. Just don't forget to bring plenty of water and food supplies when doing so. You don't want to be dehydrated along the way. The city is also known for its golf resorts, one of them, Tahquitz Creek Golf Resort, was named as "one of the best places to play" by the Golf Digest. Another great entertainment option is the Spa Resort Casino, with more than 1000 slot machines and live entertainment being offered for adult travelers to enjoy.

To quote Kirk Douglas, a true Palm Springs resident and one of the most famous among Hollywood superstars of the 20th century, 'Sometimes, the thing that ties you down sets you free. 

Palm Springs, California is all about being free. It is best known in the United States, as well as the rest of the world as one of the finest cities in the world to retire in. From Marlon Brando to Dwight Eisenhower and from Gerald Ford to Leonardo Di Caprio, a number of celebrities, influential people, businessmen and seniors have made Palm Springs their home. It is a city located strategically in the western parts of the United States, at no more than a few hours' driving distance from Los Angeles, Las Vegas, San Diego, Phoenix and many other tourist attractions. Finding hotels in Palm Springs is, because of this very reason, not a difficult proposition. 

Economy Class Hotel Choices

If you are a solo traveler who is on a hitchhiking trip across the country, you will invariably end up in one of Californian cities or towns, just like Jack Kerouac did in the beat generation years. If that's the case, Palm Springs is perhaps the best city you could hope for as it affords a host of cosy and comfy staying option. A hotel in a city like Palm Springs is often, and quite rightly so, expected to set your wallet back a little too strongly. After all, it's a city of stars, glitter, palm avenues and splendid sunsets. However, if you are keen enough to look more closely, you might have a good luck finding some great, affordable Palm Springs hotels that will provide you with amazing memories without eating into your bank balance.

What Should I Know About Being a Tourist in Palm Springs? 

If you are embarking on a sightseeing spree in Palm Springs, there are a few things that you will be required to know beforehand. The very first thing you need to know about sightseeing in Palm Springs is that you will need to have a firm schedule in place. It is a common thing to observe tourists who have not really prepared any kind of plan before starting their sightseeing activities and at the end of the day, they are left huffing and puffing because they want to squeeze in all the sights or are left reeling because of important sights they missed out on only because they did not have enough time to see them. 

Another thing you would want to know before sightseeing in Palm Springs is that the place is hot throughout the year. Average temperatures here hover about 86 degrees and that's exactly why you need to bring your best sunny game to the party. So, pack all those sun blocks, get those cowboy hats out of the closet, sport some trendy shades and say hello to Palm Springs in style! 

Transportation in Palm Springs 

Once you find good luck in spotting and hiring one among many cheap hotels in Palm Springs, you will then need to make some arrangements for moving about. It's definitely not that difficult to find good transportation in a large city like Palm Springs. That being said, it must be admitted that the state of public transportation is not that extensive in these parts of the world, perhaps because most people rely on personal cars anyway. 

However, most Palm Springs hotels do provide private cab and taxi services on call within a radius of 200 miles. That makes it possible and easy for tourists to travel to sights in Palm Springs, as well as those in other cities like LA and San Diego. 

Palm Springs is, in summary, a very relaxing place where you can soak in some tan while leaving the worries of domestic life at home. Enjoy your stay here, see all the sights around, revel in authentic Californian fruit wines and truly hot Mexican gourmet cuisines, click a ton of pictures and make sure that when you finally wind up your trip and pack up to go home, you are well stocked on memories of those sunny days and balmy nights in Palm Springs.

Dined at two separate restaurants, both were excellent: The people at Brickworks allowed us to be seated and they served us even though they were in the process of closing and the food was very good. I had the Chicken Marsala. It was delightful! Also visited an old colleague. That made the visit even more special.

Palm Springs is close to Joshua Tree National park, which is a must-see; particularly to the north, where the Joshua Trees are. Shield's Date Farm is also a short drive away in Indio, and has the most delicious dates you'll ever taste!

This desert oasis destination draws in sun lovers from all over the world, looking to soak in the 350+ days of annual sunshine.

If you like to eat, Palm Springs is the place to be. So many restaurants from which to choose. My Red Hat group and I went to see the Follies. It was wonderful!! Lots of shops and things to do.

Not only the views but the fact that it is far enough from LA that you do not have the pace of the city. The weather is unbelievably perfect this time of year. March 10, 2014. My husband and I always felt safe walking around and met many snow birds.
