Palm Springs Summer Activities

Palm Springs, CA is a year round community and when the Snowbirds leave in Spring, we have a large number of full-time residents.  Sometimes we refer to ourselves as desert rats and jokingly laugh about it because we are.  Some folks, the locals,  like to hear themselves complain about the heat but in reality, they love it and much prefer summer over winter.

At least I do for sure!

So how do we survive 110 to 120 degree temperatures in Palm Springs?

It’s not so bad, it just sounds bad.  First, we dress in very light clothes.  We tend to rise earlier than some and get our summer day started early.  Finish indoor and outdoor chores and run errands as soon as possible.  Then its time to take life a bit easier.  Relax indoors or take a long dip in the pool.

Afterward, anything from relaxing to going to a movie.  It’s just life.  And we do become acclimated to the high temps as do the people who have to survive 10 below zero winters or 98% humidity summers.  It’s all in the desire.

Understanding the closing escrow process...... It's a fire drill!


We have lots of places we can visit to get away from it all.  Idyllwild, San Diego, or taking a ride up the Palm Springs Aerial Tram all provide places to go and enjoy cooler temperatures.  And we tend to travel north for our vacations- far north- LOL.

I love to ride my bike so we have a group who gets up early 3 or 4 times a week and we ride before the heat turns on.  Same with the golfers, tennis players, hikers, etc.

NOTE:  When hiking in these parts in summer, remember these two rules:

  1. Let someone know where you are going and when you will be expected back
  2. Take plenty of water!  At least a bottle for every hour you will be out.
  3. Don’t even THINK of not obeying rule 1 and 2.  People perish every year for breaking these two rules.

So if all of this sounds like fun, add the Summer to our fantastic Fall, Winter and Spring and you see why we call this Paradise.

And FYI- the Snowbird season is from November until around May with the peak from December till April.
