If this is your first time in the Palm Springs area, here is a little information about our city:

Palm Springs is an outstanding resort city located in the desert area of Southern California. It first gained popularity in the 50s and 60s when film stars and celebrities flocked here for vacationing. Now the entire metro area of Palm Springs has evolved with dining and entertaining options for all ages, but it continues to be an attractive place for retirees. 

Palm Springs offers a variety of outdoor and indoor activities, and is known for its mid-century architecture, serene natural beauty, hiking, and sparkling pools. 


Summers in Palm Springs can be very hot because of the arid desert climate. Daytime temperatures in summers can routinely be in the range of 100°F, may even go up to 115°F at times. During the night in summer, the temperature will drop to 80s or 90s °F. Winter and spring seasons are much more enjoyable, with temperatures varying between 60°F in winter and 80°F in spring during daytime. Nights can be cold in winter and spring.


Palm Springs International Airport is located right in the heart of the city. The airport is served by all leading US airlines with nonstop flights or with connections. LA/Ontario International Airport in Ontario, which is about 70 miles to the west of Palm Springs, has a lot more flight connections and is the nearest large commercial airport.
