Five Ways to Celebrate Palm Springs Year Round Living
Palm Springs is the King of year round living. Why? Because we have things you can do for fun 12 months a year. Check out these five ways to celebrate Palm Springs Year Round Living…..Here are just a few:
1) Remarkable Hiking and Biking
The Indian Canyons and Mt. San Jacinto State Park, via the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, feature over 150 miles of hiking trails through pristine wilderness, streams and ancient palm groves. And bike trails around the city are fun and interesting with tall the Hollywood history and the Mid-Century homes.
Stop by Palm Springs Cyclery for a map or some good advice. They also have books for sale on both subjects.
2) Thrilling Off-Road Tours
Take a guided four-wheel drive along the San Andreas Fault, learn about Palm Springs’ thousands of hillside windmills, or climb among the rocky moonscapes of Joshua Tree National Park. THIS ONE is my favorite.
3) Vegas-Style Gaming
Skip the holiday traffic and get lucky at the downtown Palm Springs Spa Resort Casino for table games, slots, and poker…plus nightlife and dining. www.sparesortcasino.com
4) Knott’s Soak City
Stay cool when you whoosh down a 7-story waterslide, swim in an 800,000-galloon wave pool or chill on the lazy river at Knott’s Soak City Water Park. http://soakcityusa.com/
5) Cool Pool Parties
Enjoy the views from a cabana while listening to the sounds of the finest DJs at one Palm Springs’ weekend cool pool parties:
Ace Hotel: Drop by the pool every Sunday from 1 p.m. – 6p.m. and check out the action!
The Saguaro- New! Hip and colorful with so much happening.
