What Makes Palm Springs So Special?
Village Feel: Palm Springs has a great village feel. Interesting and eclectic neighborhoods abound. Walled and gated estates blend with charming mid century and contemporary vacation homes and condo developments. Historic properties seem to be found at every turn. Extensive bike paths, public parks and even a skate board park and a dog park make Palm Springs a very liveable city full of fun and interesting neighborhoods. Downtown features art galleries, shops, coffee bars, salons and restaurants as well as a walk of stars celebrating the many famous people who have called Palm Springs home over the years and contributed to life in the Desert. Majestic Palm trees, awesome mountain views and quiet out of the way spots are everywhere.
Hidden Value: One thing that is not immediately apparent to the visitor to Palm Springs, but is very important to who we are, is that we are a destination resort. There is no industry in the valley. No rush hour, no commuting. The “business” of the Coachella valley is fun in the sun. Special events, casinos, golf courses, world class shopping and dining see to that! Everything is just minutes away and the pace of life is slower. Everyone is here to relax and enjoy the endlessly sunny days. There are seemingly unlimited opportunities to enjoy the natural beauty of the surrounding mountains, Santa Rosa and San Jacinto, golf is a primary attraction with over 130 courses in the valley. Horseback riding, nature trails and the Indian Canyons provide even more opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Theater, art and culture abound with hundreds of live performances at dozens of theaters, including the Annenburg and the Casinos, by world famous artists every year. Palm Springs hosts a variety of Film Festivals, including The Palm Springs International Film Festival – every January.
