Vacations can be hard fun. Making the absolute most of each day and night. Collapsing when you get back to your run of the mill hotel. Opting for room service instead of dinner at that 5-star restaurant you booked six months ago because you can't seem to keep your eyes open, much less sit up straight.
We have another suggestion. Come to Palm Springs where there's so much to do. Then do absolutely nothing.

Feeling the heat a bit too much on some sunny California days? You're not alone; in fact, you're historically in tune with Francis Crocker, whose "folly" can give you one of the coolest Palm Springs vacation rentals experiences.
Back in 1935, electrical engineer Francis Crocker thought the snow-capped Mount San Jacinto peak looked pretty inviting in comparison to the midday heat of the desert. At an elevation of 10,834 feet and the highest point of the San Jacinto Mountains, his desire to "go up there where it's nice and cool" began germinating into his plans for a tramway running up the steep Chino Canyon cliffs.

It's easy to stay cool at one of our Palm Springs vacation rentals in the summer – even though you are in one of the hottest regions in the USA. While many European tourists like to drive into the hot desert in the middle of the day to experience the oven-like heat, there are much better ways to spend your time. Save that drive for the evening (or the winter months!) and do what smart locals do to enjoy the season.
Embrace the summer dawn. Even if you are usually a late riser, it's incredibly clever to shift as if you are in another time zone and get up early. Peak heat is from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm, so make a swim and breakfast at the pool your daily ritual. Morning is when the early sun is gentle on the mountains and birds are out.
