Explore and Experience Palm Springs

Activities & Attractions

The secret’s out…. Palm Springs is back in all her colorful, diverse glory. This sun-drenched desert oasis vacation destination is returning to its glory days as a Hollywood playground, a central gathering spot for modern architectural design aficionados, musicians and artists drawn by nature’s inspiration, and an increasing crowd of cool-seekers. It could be the surge of super hip (and becoming super large) events like the Palm Springs International Film Festival, Modernism Week, and Coachella and Stagecoach Music Festivals. Or the openings of incredibly unique museums such as the Architecture and Design Center in downtown Palm Springs, or nearby Sunnylands, with an public garden and walking paths inspired by Vincent Van Gogh’s paintings.

**This a small sampling of the Local Activities & Attractions, a complete list will be included in your home guide upon your arrival to your rental home**
