Palm Springs Has Attractions That Keep Our Locals and Tourists Busy

When I first arrived in the Desert in 2001, I was amazed by the beauty of the mountains and the lushness of the area. I always assumed that a desert would be dry and barren and not green and beautiful. Even though we have evolved over the years to be less reliant on water, the Palm Springs area is still a distinctly beautiful part of the Coachella Valley.

The base of the mountains allows many recreational activities that both locals and tourists enjoy. From our beautiful Golf courses like Tahquitz Creek Golf Resort and Escena Golf Club to our wonderful trails like Indian Canyons and Tahquitz Canyons, Palm Springs has much to offer the nature lover.

And if your idea of fun is not necessarily golf or hiking, there are many other activities that will certainly keep you busy.

Palm Spring’s world class Art Museum is nationally accredited with a vibrant theater, featuring fine permanent collections and top touring exhibitions. Since the area is rich in Tribal Culture, Palm Springs is home to the Agua Caliente Cultural Museum. This museum shows the history and culture of the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians and will be transformed in the next few years to a world class destination for Indian Culture.

Tours are abundant in Palm Springs and you can get up close and personal with our incredible Windmills that soar 2,000 feet. Additionally, Hummer tours are available of the desert and we have many celebrity tours that hearken back to the movie star era of Palm Springs.

Of course having sun 350 days per year and always warm temperatures makes Palm Springs a great spot to lay by the pool and relax. However, if you want some excitement from the pool, try Knott’s Soak City. This water playground has 18 major water slides and an 800,000 gallon Rip Tide Reef wave pool that is sure to delight both kids and adults.

Three final attractions that I would be remiss not to mention is the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, the Palm Springs Follies and Palm Springs Power Baseball. The tramway is an amazing feat of engineering that takes the visitor from the desert floor to the Valley Station at an elevation of 8,516 feet. The cable car gives amazing views of the valley and during the winter months, the top of the tram is a snow lovers Mecca with cross-country skiing and sledding. The Palm Springs Follies is a world-famous, Broadway-caliber celebration of the music, dance, and comedy of the 40s, 50s, and 60s with a cast old enough to have lived it! The season runs from November to May and is always a must see when in Palm Springs. Power Baseball is semi-pro ball played at the historic Palm Springs Stadium which was a former home of spring training for the Los Angeles Angels. When in season, you can watch some great athletes play high quality baseball.

I have tried to give you just a glimpse of what you can do in Palm Springs. In future blogs I promise to give much more detail on each of these activates. Go to our website link and download our Activities for Kids and Teens. A great resource for both locals and tourists.

    i am quite often bumping throughout the web most of the evening which means I have a tendency to read quite a bit, which is not generally a beneficial matter as almost all of the online resources I visit are constructed of pointless trash copied from many other sites a trillion times, but I gotta say this webpage is definitely decent and even delivers a lot of unique content, for that reason cheers for helping to stop the trend of only copying other folks’ websites, if you ever wanna take up a couple of hands of myspace poker together just hit me up – you have my email address 🙂
