Welcome to Palm Springs, California
Palm Springs is an oasis in the middle of the Sonoran Desert; a former sanctuary for Hollywood stars seeking an escape from the bright lights and paparazzi. And with its outstanding natural beauty and wildlife, it was always destined to become a magical getaway.
Only two hours from Los Angeles, Palm Springs lies in Coachella Valley beneath blue skies and between desert mountains, sun-soaked during the day and starlit at night.
Start your visit with a “flight” on the rotating aerial tram up to Mount San Jacinto Peak to get your bearings, gaze over the valley, and explore 50 miles of hiking trails, some sprinkled with snow!
Then indulge in the luxury this oasis is known for, from world-class golf courses and spas, to dining and shopping on Palm Canyon Drive. Visit the airy Palm Springs Art Museum, stroll the Walk of Stars, and pick out your own collectors piece from one of the many boutiques or art galleries.
Make time for the natural wonders of the area, from fan palms to rocky gorges to waterfalls. Visit the Living Desert Zoo and Gardens or Moorten Botanical Garden and Cactarium or venture an hour northeast to Joshua Tree National Park. The annual Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is a memorable way to take in the beauty of the area while enjoying live music and headliners.
Book one of our local Palm Springs photographers and come to this desert refuge for mid century glamour and ageless natural beauty. Sit by the pool sipping date shakes or head out in search of desert bighorn sheep and hidden waterfalls.
