Vacations in Palm Springs

The area and getting around

Oasis in the sand

Drive a 100 miles south of Los Angeles and you'll come to Coachella Valley in the Colorado desert, the home of Palm Springs. Perched 500 feet above sea level at the foot of the San Jacinto mountain range, it has year round sunshine and less than 5 inches of rain annually. Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and other members of the Rat Pack all partied hard here in the 1950s, earning the town the nickname "Hollywood's playground". These days the showbiz feeling is complemented by wellness centres, sports facilities and open air activities for mountain trekkers.

Where to shop and eat

Downtown Palm Springs is well stocked with boutiques, bistros and hip cafes, plus an art museum and cultural centre. Meanwhile, the Uptown Design District is the place to go if you're shopping for vintage fashion and Americana. Running through uptown and downtown, Palm Canyon Drive is the main destination for retail and dining, and it's as attractively shaded with palm trees as it sounds. All those desert views have inspired a distinctive local art scene, which you can check out in the galleries of the Backstreet Art District. And on Thursday nights, VillageFest brings a boho feeling to downtown with craft booths and live performers.

Travellers and activities

Palm Springs for classic movie buffs

If you love old movies, you'll feel right at home in Palm Springs. Elizabeth Taylor is among the glitzy names inscribed on the local Walk of Stars. A must-see is the Elvis Honeymoon Hideaway where the rock and roll legend celebrated his nuptials with Priscilla after a wedding in Las Vegas. Another local icon, Melvyn's restaurant was party central for the Rat Pack, and the inn where it's located once played host to the famously reclusive golden age movie star Greta Garbo. There are regular tours doing the rounds of properties that once belonged to the likes of Cary Grant, Bob Hope and Charlie Chaplin.

Palm Springs for mountain hikers

Over 100 miles of prime hiking trails wind through the pristine Colorado desert that surrounds Palm Springs. That doesn't include the nine main trails within the city itself. The most ambitious of these, the Skyline Trail, runs from behind the Art Museum right to the top of St Jacinto, a climb of 8000 feet - but there are plenty of much easier options too. There's a further 60 miles of trails in the local Indian reservation, including several short strolls of a mile or two which are fine for all the family. And for a taste of crisp mountain air, there are over 50 miles of walkways in the St Jacinto state park.

Sonny Bono (of singing duo Sonny and Cher) once served as mayor of Palm Springs.
