Dreaming of escaping to Palm Springs for a three-day vacation? We’ve devised a step-by-step plan on how you can maximize your limited time and enjoy all the splendors the desert offers.

Friday

If you're planning a road trip three days will go by quickly so you’ll want to seize every special opportunity. Start the weekend off by driving to Doug Aitken’s mirrored sculpture, ‘ Mirage,’ at the top of West Racquet Club Road in Palm Springs. This strange and unusual alfresco art sculpture is a part of Desert X— temporary site-specific art structures leading into the Coachella Valley. Unique and compelling photo opportunities guaranteed!

Dining Plans: Have dinner at the colorful Workshop Kitchen + Bar. Buzzing with activity, this fine dining restaurant offers mouth-watering Americana cuisine.

Saturday

The Palm Springs Aerial Tram is essential when visiting Palm Springs. Prepare yourself for magnificent views at 8,000 feet. Choose from guided leisurely walks through nature trails or for the brave at heart, you can hike San Jacinto Peak.

Dining plans: Enjoy the breathtaking view at Peaks Restaurant. The hot tapas are delicious!

Sunday

Discover the history of the Cahuilla Indians at Indian Canyons. You'll drink in the rocky canyon views contrasted by lush, green palms. If you love learning about botany and native animals while strolling through nature, join a guided tour with The Best of the Best Tours. As a bonus this tour will begin at the Andreas Canyon, where one of the largest palm oasis resides. 

Dining plans: After you’ve built up an appetite from hiking and sightseeing, eat at Rooster and the Pigfor bold and hearty fare. It's located near downtown where you'll find lots of shopping opportunities. 

You deserve a long weekend filled with views from the top punctuated by the memorable mystique of the desert. There is lots of shopping and plenty of things to do in Palm Springs.
