Palm Springs Bureau of Tourism

Palm Springs, located in the heart of the Coachella Valley in Southern California, is a sunshine oasis. Whether you’re looking to embrace the spirit of adventure, or just intent on relaxing beside a glittering pool, there is no better place on earth.
For those in search of adventure, four exquisite canyons are yours to discover; hike the San Andreas Fault under a moonlit sky; go rock climbing in the Joshua Tree National Park; ride the world’s largest rotating tram car as it ascends to over 8,500 feet.  Head towards the canyons on horseback, across gentle creeks to breathtaking views; or enjoy nature's beautiful San Jacinto Mountains.  For a unique aerial view, ride a mile-high canopied parachute; soar & glide on a motor-less flight over the desert; or marvel at beautiful sunsets in an amazing balloon flight.  Explore the San Andreas Fault by Jeep; roar along the sand dunes on Quad Bikes; or explore the mud volcanoes of California's largest lake, the Salton Sea.
Those seeking relaxation will still find plenty in Palm Springs.  With a gentle village vibe, excellent shopping, restaurants, bars and a host of museums & galleries to peruse, Palm Springs offers a sense of pure escapism for every taste - the culture vulture, sun worshipper and adventure junkie will all find their nirvana here.
Palm Springs has a wide and varied range of accommodation, from mid-range hotels and self-catering vacation homes to luxurious properties and even celebrity rentals, and is just a two hour drive from L.A.
