Palm Springs Travel Guide
Welcome to Palm Springs!
Situated in southern California, the city of Palm Springs is a desert oasis for the leisure traveler. With its warm, dry climate, Palm Springs is a favored spot in winter for those seeking refuge from colder climates. The city has long been a haven to many celebrities. Palm Springs is also a golfing hotspot and has some outstanding courses. There are many tours and recreational opportunities in the surrounding desert terrain, and Mount San Jacinto State Park, which features hiking trails, campgrounds and visitor center, is located just west of the city. Be sure to visit the Palm Springs Desert Museum and ride the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway. Visitors interested in aviation history should not miss the Palm Springs Air Museum and its extensive collection of World War II warplanes and artifacts. For a journey back to the 1930s and early 1940s, visit Ruddy's 1930s General Store Museum, an authentic re-creation of a period general store laden with nostalgia.
Declared a National Monument in 1936, Joshua Tree National Park encompasses two deserts - the Colorado Desert and the Mojave Desert - and the Little San Bernardino Mountains.
