Summer in the desert can be brutal, but don't let that stop you from visiting Palm Springs. It is indeed possible to have a fabulous time without breaking a sweat or sacrificing the full experience. We'd like to suggest a few shaded and indoor activities to help you plan a most enjoyable visit, any time of year.

Palm Springs Aerial Tramway

Get a 360 degree view of Chino Canyon from the world's largest rotating tram. It's a ten minute journey to Mountain Station, where you can stay cool while you take in a documentary at one of two theaters, explore the natural history museum, dine and shop. 

Palm Springs Art Museum Architecture and Design Center

Palm Springs is a well-known haven for mid century architecture and design. The uninitiated can learn all about it here, and the design-conscious will find themselves in mid-mod heaven. Don't sleep on the nearby Palm Springs Art Museum, either.

Palm Springs Air Museum

Rated by CNN as one of the Top 14 Air Museums in the World, you'll find fighter jets and bombers from WWII, Korea, and Vietnam. Take a tour with a veteran docent and learn about the history of the planes from someone with firsthand experience. If staying cool is imperative but you still seek adventure, book a flight in a WWII-era C-47 or P-51 Mustang. You read that right, the Air Museum offers rides in authentic, working warplanes, but seats are limited.

Village Green Heritage Center

History buffs can take a deep dive into the history of Palm Springs at the Village Green Heritage Center, a collection of small museums that include the Agua Caliente Cultural Museum, the Palm Springs Historical Society, and a replica 1930s general store. 

Any space in your itinerary can be filled with shopping our famous antique shops, clothing boutiques and art galleries, and drinking and dining at world-class restaurants. Of course, if you choose to book a Mod Mansion with us, you'll have your own pool and plenty of room to lounge and enjoy life--when you aren't out sightseeing--a key to the Palm Springs experience.
