Palm-Springs is an oasis of blue and green in the Sonora Desert of southern California. Located 70 miles east of Los Angeles, Palm Springs sits at the foot of the 10,804-foot Mt. San Jacinto. When the East Coast of the U.S. is buried under snow and grey skies, it's warm and sunny in Palm Springs. Lush palm trees, 109 emerald green golf courses, 30,000 sparkling blue pools dot the landscape around this city that is known as "the playground of the stars." For things to do in Palm Springs, start with a glassed-in tramcar ride 8,000 feet up the mountain for a glorious view of the Coachella Valley. You can also drive up the mountain using the Palms to Pines Highway, stopping at the picturesque town of Idyllwild along the way. Once you arrive at the top, you can hike the trails on foot or mule back, or you can take a hot air balloon ride over the desert. Back in town, there are theaters and museums to enjoy, and fine dining at world class restaurants. Shop at upscale boutiques and art galleries, and take a bus tour to see the homes of the stars. Just outside of town, enjoy outdoor recreation at Joshua Tree National Park, or visit Indian Canyons and the Living Desert. For an unforgettable experience, hike or take a guided jeep tour of Palm Springs area - California's desert oasis.
