What to Know Before You Go to Palm Springs 

In order to plan the most fun vacation to Palm Springs CA possible, it helps to know a bit of background about Palm Springs, including the climate and how to prepare for it. 

Since the early days, Palm Springs has drawn people for its warm, dry climate. Winter and spring are the most popular times of year to visit due to the mild, temperate weather, which stays in the 70s to upper 80s. The summers here are extremely hot; be prepared for temperatures in the 90s to 110s if you come during the summer season. 

Being that Palm Springs is a dry and oftentimes warm place, you’ll want to pack warm weather clothing, protective sun gear such as hats and sunglasses, and plenty of sunscreen—especially if you plan on hiking through the surrounding desert and canyons. Additionally, many of our vacation rentals include pool access, so if you like swimming, bring your swimsuit! 

However, winter nighttime temperatures can still get pretty cold, so you’ll want to pack a few cold weather items just in case if you’re visiting during that time of year. 

Where to Go When You Get to Palm Springs 

Palm Springs and the surrounding area are home to a variety of sightseeing, recreation, and things to do in Palm Springs. Take the Aerial Tramway through Chino Canyon, or hike through the famous Indian Canyons (including Tahquitz, Andreas, Murray, and Palm Canyons).  

Go on a walking tour of Downtown Palm Springs and see where Hollywood’s Golden Era elite vacationed and played in Old Las Palmas. Marvel at the modernist architecture built by iconic figures like Frank Lloyd Wright.  

Play golf, watch polo matches and equestrian shows, and gamble at casinos in the surrounding area. Go shopping at El Paseo. Your options for fun and excitement are endless!
