- At a Glance
Long the playground for Hollywood celebrities, the Palm Springs area holds infinite possibilities for family fun. The perennially sunny skies and clean air lure active families outdoors for unparalleled golfing on one of the area's 118 courses, biking through stunning canyons, horseback riding among blooming spring flowers, rock climbing on Joshua Tree's geologic wonders, and more. Families seeking a more relaxed retreat bask in the ease of a stay at one of the area's full-service resorts, leisurely frolicking in pristine swimming pools, dining in gourmet restaurants, and soaking in the area's renowned healing mineral waters after a day at the spa. Either way, the desert itself will be the biggest draw, fascinating visitors young and old.
