You haven't seen magnificence until you've seen the Coachella Valley come to life in the spring. The wildflowers and cactus are blooming in the Palm Springs area from March through June. The desert is a wondrous place with lots to do and see. But, ahhhhh, the nightlife.
Before I get to that, I need to mention, "The 25th Annual WildLights" at the zoo, which begins on November 24th and runs on selected nights through December 24th, from 6-9PM.

You must experience this special event with thousands of twinkling lights and lanterns that make the desert come alive! Now on to the nightlife...
