Palm Springs - A great place to live and work!

Palm Canyon Drive, Palm SpringsAs I sit here and write my inaugural blog, I can’t help but think that I live and work in an extraordinary place.  Not only does Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley have the best weather in the country right now, we have the best views, best attractions and the best businesses.

As you walk along our world famous Palm Canyon Drive, overshadowed by the San Jacinto Mountains, you come across so many unique shops that you wonder why anyone would shop anywhere else.  From incredible art galleries to spa and salon experiences, Palm Canyon Drive offers over 400 businesses with something for everyone.

Restaurants are abundant and you can sample almost any type of cuisine you have a mind for.  From Pomme Frite to Dink’s Restaurant and Ultra Lounge, Palm Springs offers a unique style that is unmatched anywhere in the country.  In fact, our Palm Springs Chamber Restaurant Guide offers 79 restaurants to tempt any palate.

And did I mention entertainment?  Palm Springs holds a world famous international Film Festival every January and the stars from Hollywood come out to receive their rewards and mingle with the locals.  In fact, over 20,000 visitors descend on Palm Springs over a two week period to watch some incredible films.

In future blogs, I hope to give you some insight into what Palm Springs is all about.  Since I am the CEO of the Palm Springs Chamber of Commerce, it will always have a business slant, but in my opinion, that’s what makes this city tick.

So hold on to your seat and check back here often on to discover something new and exciting about my favorite world class destination – Palm Springs!
