Visit Palm Springs, California

Palm Springs is a true oasis in the California desert, with its many golf courses and condominiums lying amidst lush farmland.

In the heart of the city lies the shop-lined Palm Canyon Drive, the Palm Springs Desert Museum, which focuses on Native American art, and the Tramway Gas Station, home to the city's visitor centre.

Bougainvillea, Palm SpringsThe city's architecture and upmarket resort atmosphere makes a great contrast with the surrounding desert scenery. For an overview of the area the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway winds 8000 feet up the mountains, passing five climatic zones on the way, and offers stunning views from the top.

Many miles of walking trails also surround the town. The one-mile nature walk through picturesque Long Valley makes an easy start, or try the lovely walks through Indian Canyon, Palm Canyon and Andreas Canyon. Some areas of the desert are set aside for 4x4 adventures, another great way to explore.

Alternatively you can take things easy and pamper yourself at a day spa or test your golf game at several well-known courses, including the Palm Springs Country Club. Palm Springs is also perfectly located for exploring nearby Joshua Tree National Park.
