Palm Springs has all the things you'd expect—desert heat, celebrity sightings, elderly snowbirds and lots and lots of golf—but it also has 10,000-foot mountains, lush canyons, towering dinosaurs and, yes, plenty of glitz. Granted, Palm Springs is arguably the shop-'til-you-drop locale, but it also has over 100 golf courses, 600 tennis courts and 35 miles of mountain biking to exercise. And if you need a dose of Mother Nature, nearby Joshua Tree National Park, Indian Canyons and Mt. San Jacinto State Park all offer hikes amidst beautiful desert scenery. Of course, there's also the chance to relax in the luxurious setting of your resort. Resort amenities include outdoor swimming pool, outdoor children's pool, outdoor spa, fitness room, pool table, ping pong, arcade games, elevator, and sharded computer with internet. Local attractions are Aerial tramway to an elevation of 8,516 feet, Moorten's Botanical Garden, Knott's Soak City USA, hot air balloon rides, Joshua Tree National Park, Jeep eco tours, Palm Canyon Theatre, Spa/Resort casino, Palm Springs Follies, and Palm Springs Village Fest.
Another resort in the local area is Palm Springs Villas. Palm Springs Villas is set within 33 acres of landscaped grounds. Just three miles from the center of Palm Springs, they are well placed for exploring the Californian coast. There are 6 outdoor swimming pools, 8 jacuzzis, 4 tennis courts, picnic tables with barbecue facilities, and laundry facilities. Units are furnished, each with lounge/dining area, television, radio, telephone, table and chairs, separate kitchen with oven, four electric rings, microwave, fridge/freezer, kettle, coffee maker and toaster.
