Relax, read, listen to great music – rest in the shade at your luxurious vacation home. Your cool outfit: sunscreen and in most cases, a bathing suit.
Then go indoors for recreational shopping or to enjoy the ever-cool local Palm Springs Art Museum in three locations. The Desert Film Society has screenings throughout the summer, or slip into a summer blockbuster matinée at a local theater. Or if you want to play, you'll find several top-quality and well-chilled casinos in the area. Your look: lightweight, flowing, natural and summer-fashionable.
Want to get away to the cool mountain air? The giant Palm Springs Aerial Tramway whisks you away up to high wilderness where it's cool enough to hike or just stroll in Mt. San Jacinto State Park.
After the sun goes down, choices are easier. Every dining option you could wish for, elegant cocktail bars, energized clubs. But it's still warm out. If you have nightlife plans that include dressing up, don't walk out to wait for your air-conditioned ride or limo until it pulls up! However, this is California, so attractive casual attire is always appreciated. Smart visitors stay cool by staying comfortable in the amazing Palm Springs area.
