There's always something going on in Palm Springs. The temps may change, but the picture-perfect resort-like atmosphere remains. Greater Palm Springs' sunny days and warm winter weather make this historic city a year-round playground. There's plenty to do for those who enjoy being active—and even those who would rather kick back and relax! 

Visiting the desert oasis is a wonderful vacation spot any time of the year -- you simply can't go wrong. Whether hibernating in the 3 Bedroom Villa or planning a family retreat in our Songwriter's Sanctuary, be prepared to have the best time ever! 

Presented by the Palm Springs Art Museum, Brave New Worlds Exploration of Space draws you into the creative universes of five contemporary artists through sculpturally immersive installations. Motivated by the legacies of Southern California as a place of artistic experimentation, featured artists use their distinctive spatial languages to construct worlds that both challenge convention and ignite our senses.

The cool weather is perfect for a day adventure. A new travel guidebook by Rob Bignell, avid backpacker, describes more than 30 hiking trails in Palm Springs, and the Coachella Valley. A National Park, a State Park, two National Forests, and a variety of other public lands all are open to hikers, bicyclists and other outdoors lovers in Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley. Many are free while the others carry a nominal entrance fee. Start planning your adventure!

We love free entertainment and every Thursday evening in downtown Palm Springs, enjoy a diverse array of artists, artisans, entertainers, assorted fruits, vegetables, fresh flowers, jewelry, international cuisine, and of course Palm Springs sweets for your sweet tooth. 

Another interesting historical side note: Lucy and Desi Arnaz had been visiting the desert since the early 1940s. They commissioned architect Paul R. Williams to design a home for them in 1954 in the newly established Thunderbird Country Club. Their daughter, Lucie Arnaz, who still lives in Palm Springs, says the Coachella Valley was "a majestic mountain happy place where they could find refuge" from the Hollywood spotlight.
