If you have some extra time and want to check out what Palm Springs has to offer, here are some suggestions.
The Living Desert Zoo/Gardens – Zoo and botanical garden that specializes in the deserts of the world with a mission of desert conservation through preservation, education and appreciation, great for adults and kids.
Golf – Palm Springs is known for its rather large number of golf courses. Here are a few with web links.
Mesquite Golf and Country Club
Palm Springs Aerial Tramway – takes you up to the Mt. San Jacinto State Park and Wilderness Area with over 50 miles of hiking trails, over 8,000 ft in elevation and much cooler than the desert floor
Palm Springs Air Museum – The Museum preserves, exhibits, and flies aircraft from World War Two, Korea, and the Vietnam Wars. You can also ride along in some of them for a bird’s eye view of the valley.
Agua Caliente Cultural Center – This is to open, hopefully in late 2020, at the location of Palm Springs’ original hot mineral spring, on the corner of Tahquitz Canyon Way and North Indian Canyon Drive, very close to the hotel, and feature a spa and bathhouse with treatment rooms, a tranquility garden, and outdoor natural mineral pools.
Agua Caliente Casino Palm Springs – 401 E Amado Road, close to the hotel
Palm Springs Village Fest – Thursday night market on Palm Canyon (street closed to traffic) downtown, food and other vendors.
