We at Acme House Co. believe that everyone deserves a chance to visit Palm Springs and experience our fantastic region, including visitors with special needs or disabilities. With its harsh desert landscape, Palm Springs might not strike you as a place where people with disabilities or special needs can plan a vacation with ease, but this couldn’t be further from the truth! Below, we’ve detailed a brief guide to navigating your way through Palm Springs’ activities and attractions if you’re affected by disabilities or have special needs. Read on below to learn more about a Palm Springs trip!
From wheelchair accessible hiking trails to intriguing museums and lively cultural events, Palm Springs activities and attractions have much to offer for visitors of all levels of able-ness, meaning that neither you nor your guests will have to miss out on the full Palm Springs experience during your time here.
Downtown Palm Springs is the beating heart of Greater Palm Springs, home to an eclectic mix of bars, restaurants, shops, and museums. Because of their close proximity and ample interior space—as well as the diverse entertainment they offer, such as live music, fine dining, boutique shopping, and exciting parades and festivals—visitors who use wheelchairs, scooters, and other forms of aid can navigate the area with ease.
Iconic attractions like the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, Palm Canyon Drive, El Paseo, and the Living Desert Zoo and Botanical Gardens are all very easy to access. See the sights of Chino Canyon and the San Jacinto Mountains from the tram, go shopping at El Paseo, watch the Pride Parade or go to a farmers market on Palm Canyon Drive, and immerse yourself in the natural beauty of Greater Palm Springs at the zoo and botanic gardens. If you don’t mind a quick drive north on Highway 62, Big Morongo Canyon Preserve has an excellent wheelchair accessible boardwalk.
Finally, make sure that your lodgings fit your needs. A cramped hotel room won’t accommodate you like a spacious and private vacation rental where you can fit any necessary equipment with ease.
