Palm Springs: A Guide to Decadence in the Desert

Palm Springs, “a playground for the stars”, is a beautiful paradise nestled between palm trees, picturesque mountains, beaming sunshine, endless spas, freshly manicured golf greens and culinary delights.

If a relaxing family vacation, girls weekend, bachelorette party, team outing, star-studded event or a much needed “moment of zen” is on the horizon, all roads lead to this stunning oasis.

From waterfall hikes to vintage boutiques, from timeless art galleries to midcentury-modern architecture, from casino slots to cutting edge salons, this year-round destination will fulfill your every wish.

For a relaxing nights sleep, imaginative Instagram photo shoots, convenience to luxury and the highest standards of customer service, I personally recommend The Parker Palm Springs, The Kimpton Rowan Palm Springs, Avalon Hotel & Bungalows, Villa Royale, ARRIVE Palm Springs, ACE Hotel & Swim Club or Korakia Pensione.

With summer temperatures in the rear view mirror, Palm Canyon Drive has closed vehicle traffic between Tahquitz Canyon and Baristo Road for the foreseeable future, allowing Downtown Palm Springs restaurants to accommodate outdoor dining while abiding by public health protocols, in efforts to stop the spread of coronavirus. 

The city has also unveiled some new artwork between The Kimpton Rowan and Starbucks Reserve, so everyone can capture a timeless moment in the heart of Palm Springs.

With everything your heart desires within steps of your door, and a few miles away from the coast, experience the sights and sounds of Palm Springs, California.
