Family Travel: Staying at the Wexler Fishbowl

Family Travel Palm Springs

PALM SPRINGS, CA – “We need to do a lot more trips.” For the Bryman family from Los Angeles, this realization happened at the top of the boulders in Joshua Tree during their trip to Palm Springs, CA. Family Travel

FAMILY VACATION – “Planning anything for children is a delicate balance between what you want them to see and what you want them to show you. At home, you see them playing the same games over and over again, drawing the same pictures. You see where they get stuck in their creativity, their visions, their imagination.” One of the most powerful parts of a family vacation is seeing the kids – and the parents – reinvigorated. Family Travel

MID MOD IMMERSION – Part of the trip is about relaxing and unwinding – at home – in a very cool Midcentury Vacation Home Rental. “We’re all together, not really doing anything. Just being a family. Honestly, I think there’s something weirdly magical about this place.”   Family Travel

POOL TIME IS FAMILY TIME – “Getting ready for any trip, no matter what, is stressful. But then you get here, and you’re in a home, all together and not in separate rooms, and you realize it was all worthwhile.”

THINGS TO DO  – FAMILY TRAVEL: When the “showing them” and the “showing you” worlds collide, beautiful things can happen. In addition to spending lots of time at their vacation rental, hanging around the pool and just being a family  – the Brymans also put together a great list of family friendly outings throughout the desert.

This is an excerpt from Sophie De Kepper’s post as it appeared on AirBnB/Palm Springs. To read the full post about Jill Bryman’s family trip to Palm Springs where they stayed at The Wexler Fishbowl click here.

 

Jill Bryman’s Family Guide to Palm Springs

We have two extremely curious, high-energy daughters—Piper and Riley—with huge imaginations, and I find their interpretations of places and things on vacation are almost always a lot more exciting and a lot more fun than we could have hoped for. With that said, here’s a list (in no particular order) of our top five favorite places to see, feel, eat, and enjoy when we’re in Palm Springs.Family Travel

Family Travel / Where To Eat:

Cheeky’sEvery family stops at Cheeky’s on their way to or from Palm Springs. Local and organic with seasonally changing menus that mother’s love and gooey sticky waffles that the kids go wild over. And: cocktails!

Johnny Costa’s Ristorante: Family owned and popular amongst the locals, this place has great pasta and pizza. Every family needs a good place to go for pizza while on vacation, and this place has gluten-free options!

Smoke Tree BBQ: Because yum, and it’s child friendly.

Shields Date Garden: This is a fun activity coupled with a good breakfast or lunch. The garden/museum is an interesting insight into all things date-related, and the cafe has lots of date- (as opposed to cane sugar) sweetened treats.

Mid-Century Vacation Rentals Added For Modernism

Palm Springs – As hundreds of Modernists scramble to find last minute rooms anywhere near the virtually sold out city of Palm Springs, Acme House Co. has added a few new homes to their portfolio of Vacation Rental Properties. So there is still hope to find rooms in town for Modernism Week, even at this late date.

According to Ken Hudnall, Reservation Manager for Acme, these new additions to the portfolio have come just in time. “As of this past Monday we were sold out for Modernism Week,” said Hudnall.  “But our Property Care Team has fast tracked the onboarding process on a few new properties so we can accommodate at least some of the Modernists who didn’t quite plan ahead.”
