Helpful Tips for Planning a Kid Friendly Palm Springs Vacation 

Planning a family friendly Palm Springs vacation isn’t difficult when you have an idea of what kind of experience you want. 

Do your kids love nature? Take them to see the Living Desert Zoo and Gardens, ride the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway over Chino Canyon, or take them on an exciting trek through the Indian Canyons if they’re a little older. 

Do your children love science and history? Greater Palm Springs is home to a wide range of museums, from Cabazon Dinosaur Museum and the Palm Springs Air Museum to the Children’s Discovery Museum of the Desert. 

Need to cool off after all of that exploring? Both Palm Desert Aquatic Center and Wet ‘n’ Wild offer cool and fun ways to beat the heat, from waterslides to wave pools and surf machines. 

To avoid rowdy hotel neighbors and keep things PG, book your own private vacation rental, where you can control how kid friendly the environment is while enjoying incredible private and community amenities that rival any hotel. However you spend your time enjoying things to do with kids in Palm Springs, you’re sure to make great memories with your children here!
