Hi, I just happened upon your forum while I was searching for relocation advice for moving to Palm Springs. I currently live in Florida, and work for a website called miamibeach411.com which is eerily similar to yours! I think you must use the same forum program...

Anyway, my roommate Dave (I'm 44 and he's 30) and I are plotting out a possible move to Palm Springs in May. I'll be down in early January to scope the place out more carefully. I was wondering if you had any suggestions about neighborhoods to aim for that are especially walkable. By walkable, I mean easy access to stores, banks, the post office and things that make life interesting. We have a car, but enjoy a villagey feel, that isn't overly dense. South Beach, while pedestrian-friendly, can be a little aggressive at times!

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Check out the areas in close proximity to Palm Canyon Drive in downtown Palm Springs. If you can walk to Palm Canyon Drive, you\'ll be able to walk to shops, restaurants, art galleries, pubs and every kind of boutique!

Thanks, Jojo! I'm sure I'll need to ask you a few more things before it's all said and done, but this will get me started!

Another question please? What is the general feeling towards Desert Hot Springs? I am looking at apartments there. Thanks.

The general feeling is that Desert Hot Springs have bargains as far as real estate, but you\'ll need a car to get to Palm Springs. The best way to see if the area is for you is to actually go there to see for yourself!

Thanks again JOJO. I am the same guy you PM'd last week about this. I lived in Newport Beach for a long time and even now visit PS at least twice a year as I love it so much there. So I am pretty familiar. I think my biggest concern will be employment, especially being middle aged.
