Discover a town born out of Hollywood's Golden Age

A desert oasis in the heart of the Coachella Valley, the resort town of Palm Springs is a popular year-round vacation destination that offers something for everyone. Rising to prominence in the late 1920s and 1930s with the development of posh hotels that attracted the Hollywood glitterati and the likes of the Rat Pack, today Palm Springs offers a fascinating mix of museums, top-notch dining, outdoor activities, and mid-century modern architecture. If you're lucky, you might even get your big Hollywood break here, like Marilyn Monroe did many years ago.

Take a deep breath of that dry desert air

Be sure to pack your hiking boots when you head to your Palm Springs vacation rental. Countless local trails range from scenic canyon walks on the easy end, to the rigorous Cactus to Clouds Trail, climbing over 10,000 in elevation in only 16 miles between Palm Springs and San Jacinto Peak. At lower elevations, you can also enjoy plenty of biking, horseback riding, golf, and tennis. For a culture fix, Palm Springs hosts a couple of major film festivals each year, and the large concentration of public art projects makes for a great walking tour.

From museums to mountains, and everything in between

Museum buffs will be in heaven at a Palm Springs vacation rental. There are several to choose from, but some of the most popular include the Palm Springs Air Museum, the Palm Springs Art Museum, the Agua Caliente Cultural Museum, and the quirky Ruddy's General Store Museum, which transports you back in time to mom-and-pop shops of the 1930s. Get a taste of the desert at the Moorten Botanical Garden and Cactarium, or the Living Desert Zoo and Gardens. The rotating Palm Springs Aerial Tramway ride to the top of Chino Canyon is the best way to take it all in.

Where the temperatures range from warm to hot

You're heading to the desert, so it should come as no surprise that you'll experience plenty of heat at your Palm Springs vacation rental. You can easily see temps of 90 or higher anywhere from April to October, with the mercury soaring well into the triple digits in the peak summer months of June to September. Lows can dip into the 40s overnight from December to February. Palm Springs gets over 300 days of sunshine a year and less than 5 inches of rain, so be sure to pack that sunscreen.

Mountains and more mountains as far as the eye can see

Palm Springs may be a desert town, tucked in the Coachella Valley in the northern end of the Sonoran Desert, but the mountains unquestionably dominate the landscape. To the north, you have the San Bernardino Mountains, while the Santa Rosa Mountains rise to the south. The San Jacinto Mountains dominate the west, and the Little San Bernardino Mountains complete the picture in the east. The warm, dry weather makes the valley a prime agricultural area, famous for producing figs, dates, and mangoes. And, of course, you'll see plenty of palm trees in Palm Springs.
