Looking for a peaceful quiet place where you can repose yourself? If yes, then Palm Springs is the place to be.
Palm Springs is a desert resort city located in the Coachella Valley in California, USA about 107 miles east of Los Angeles. The city is known for celebrities and rich people owning their getaways mansions here. It is the perfect place for a relaxing holiday because of all the luxury and natural mineral water spas. A great place to play golf, since there are golf courses everywhere. Tennis is the next most popular sport here. The famous Coachella festival is held near Palm Springs every year in April.
One thing to keep in mind is that it can get unbearably hot in Palm Springs. I definitely recommend visiting this city when the weather is more bearable because if you come here during its hottest months, you will not want to leave indoors with air-conditing. I went to Palm Springs around March – April and the weather was already quite hot. We were looking for places we could cool down for a little bit.
But if you plan to visit Palm Springs, I definitely recommend booking a house for yourself with a pool, so you can get the full Palm Springs experience.
