Your Guide to Palm Springs, CA

Nestled in the Coachella Valley is the resort city of Palm Springs. This California desert destination gained popularity in the 1900s thanks to “health tourists” who sought the dry heat. Within a few decades Palm Springs drew attention as an upscale vacation spot frequented by Hollywood stars like Frank Sinatra and Bob Hope. On your next trip to the area, reserve a cheap Palm Springs car rental to experience the heat and glamour for yourself.

Out and About in Palm Springs

Grab the keys to your rental car in Palm Springs and get ready to explore. The downtown area is the first place you should visit. Palm Canyon Drive is full of shops, restaurants, and bars for you to roam through. Steer toward the Palm Springs Art Museum to marvel at its many captivating exhibits, or visit one of the other galleries that line that main thoroughfare.

The Area Around Palm Springs

Six miles east of the city is the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway—park your car, climb aboard, and soar above Chino Canyon on the largest rotating tram in the world. Enjoy even more of the stunning landscape by driving 20 miles east to the Coachella Valley Preserve, a massive wildlife refuge and lake in the middle of the high desert. You may also consider a day trip to Southern California’s wine country when you drive some 80 miles southwest to Temecula, which is beautiful year-round.

History of Palm Springs

Palm Springs saw early success as a destination for health tourists. During the late 1800s, a hot, dry climate was considered ideal for treating tuberculosis as well as maintaining general good health. Visitors flocked to Palm Springs, hoping the desert air would help them improve their wellbeing. In time, healthy tourists followed, and Palm Springs began to expand to accommodate all visitors alike. Hotels, golf courses, and nightclubs opened up, and beautiful neighborhoods frequented by Hollywood stars became a staple of the area.

Dry Heat

Palm Springs is considered the desert, and a visit here means you can expect sunshine and hot weather just about every day of the year—along with less than 5 inches of rain across all four seasons. In the winter, you’ll mostly see temperatures in the 70s, though the evenings do cool. In summer, temperatures hit the triple digits with startling frequency, and even the evenings don’t cool down all that much; at night, the temperature only drops to the 80s, if that.
