Palm Springs has often been touted as an ideal travel destination in the months between January and April, culminating with the unofficial end of season blockbuster, Coachella. For those looking to explore Palm Springs without the hustle and bustle of the crowds, a trip in the offseason may be just the thing for you. Summer in Palm Springs may heat up with higher temperatures, but it also affords the opportunity to enjoy the area and all that it offers, without paying high season rates for Palm Springs vacation rentals. 

Known for its many culinary offerings, Palm Springs has become one of the country's premier dining destinations. There is no better time to take advantage of the area's restaurant scene than during Greater Palm Springs Restaurant Week. Taking place from June 1-17, over 100 restaurants throughout the Coachella Valley will highlight their culinary talents by offering specially priced two and three-course meals. For more information on participating restaurants, as well as additional information, go to Visit Greater Palm Springs.

Another great summer event is the Palm Springs International ShortFest, taking place June 19-25. In its twenty-fourth year, this film festival is one of the largest exhibits of short films in North America, offering over 325 short film submissions from over 60 countries. For details on tickets and films, visit Palm Springs Shortfest.

For those looking to explore the outdoors, there is abundant sun and low humidity to enjoy, even in the heat of the summer months. There may be no better way to see the sights of Palm Springs than from the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway. A two-and-a-half mile journey up the magnificent cliffs of the Chino Canyon, the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway offers breathtaking, panoramic views of the Mt. San Jacinto State Park and beyond. Summer months bring later sunsets and more daylight to enjoy this picturesque ride in the world's largest rotating gondola. Once atop, outdoor adventure seekers can explore over 50 miles of hiking trails. For those looking to simply enjoy the stunning vistas, once departing the Mountain Station tram stop, you can take advantage of restaurants, observation areas as well as a museum. Additional information on pricing and tram times can be found at Palm Springs Tramway.

After exploring all that Palm Springs has to offer during the summer, you will want to come back to a luxurious home away from home to relax and unwind. Let ModMansions Vacation Rentals Palm Springs find you the ideal setting to enjoy your summer vacation getaway. Give us a call today at (760) 209-4311.
