What to do and what to see:

The beautiful desert city of Palm Springs, nicknamed “America’s Desert Playground,” is located a little over 100 miles east of Los Angeles in southern California. Virtually surrounded by mountains, this sunshine-filled district is reputed to be a hideaway for the rich and famous Hollywood types seeking rest and relaxation. The world of golf gives Palm Springs a respectable nod, with more than 100 championship courses located here, and youth soccer programs, world class tennis, boxing venues, and semi-pro baseball leagues will keep every sports enthusiast entertained. The Palm Springs Aerial Tramway is a breathtaking way to travel from the desert floor to the mountain peaks, and horseback riding and hiking opportunities in Mount San Jacinto are plentiful. Attractions in Palm Springs include Indian Canyons, the Moorten Botanical Garden and Cactarium and The Fabulous Palm Springs Follies, as well as many other high quality venues for entertainment, art, culture, shopping, and fine dining. The best time of year to visit is the fall, when crowds are at their lowest, but with an average of 350 annual days of sunshine, any time is perfect to visit “The Golf Capital of the World,” Palm Springs, California.
