The 12th Fairway Bar & Grill is always popular with a menu that appeals to all tastes. The short journey into the city center can be made in style, as Palm Springs flights are met by a fleet of luxury Limos whose drivers sometimes offer discounts. If you prefer a little less glamour, take the At Your Service shuttle bus, which will take you to the heart of the city quickly and for a budget-friendly price.
Palm Springs Weather
As you approach on your flights to Palm Springs you can't help but notice the mountains in all four directions surrounding the desert valley where the city sits. This shelter is the reason why Palm Springs is a hot and dry destination, with over 350 days of sunshine and precious little rain throughout the year. Lightweight clothing is the order of the day. Summer temperatures are regularly in excess of 100 degrees Fahrenheit, with the nights often remaining above 85 degrees. That said, it is a dry type of heat and not as uncomfortable as you might think.
Getting Around in Palm Springs
When you touch down on your Palm Springs flights, consider renting a car as some of the best sights are located outside of town, including the Joshua Tree National Park in the Coachella Valley. Air conditioning is an absolute must, so ensure it is working properly before driving off. The Sun Bus takes routes around the city and beyond, but the beauty of Palm Springs is that walking is a wonderful option, especially in the evenings, which boast an idyllic dusk-dappled environment. The other alternative is cycling, particularly in the cooler months, as the city is mostly flat. There are numerous car rental companies located throughout the city, many offering low-cost rentals.
Palm Springs Attractions
When you arrive on your Palm Springs flights you will have many attractions and activities to choose from. To escape the scorching temperatures take a trip to Idyllwild, a fabulous village in the mountains overlooking the city. However, if you have your shopping hat on you need to head to the Cabazon Mall, which boasts well over 100 branded outlets to browse from. Some of the main attractions of Palm Springs include:
- The Indian Canyons trails marked with stunning palm tree groves
- Spectacular views from the Aerial Tramway Cable Car
