WchzhnThe Palm Springs Aviation Museum was unexpectedly open for visits. The weather was 109 degrees Celsius, and there was an endless stream of visitors... 2/3 of the exhibition area was outdoors, with the towering mountains as the background, and the runway next to it was in normal use. It's an excellent location. Aircraft from the World War II period on display can currently be leased for flying. The decomposed mechanical structure and 29 old airplanes on display allow you to enjoy unique aviation art! A museum that is very worth visiting. Although the weather is very hot, the children have to walk twice repeatedly before leaving with reluctance! [呲牙]
137***66There is no better way to escape the desert heat than spending a few hours in a museum. Here you can broaden your horizons and accept new experiences and ideas. A wonderful time and experience. Next time I want to see another museum in the Oalm Desert.
137***66I did several hikes in the Indian Canyons area during my four week stay in Palm Springs. It is quite close to downtown and easy to get to. You do have to pay an admission when entering the area. A map is provided. I hiked the easy Andreas Canyon loop, the longer Murray Canyon loop (One of my favorites!), the Palm Canyon/Victor loop, and about half the very steep Maynard Mine trail. As you will see from the map you will get, many of the trails intersect so you can create your own shorter or longer hike as you want.
TodemmySonny Bono was a giant personality, entertainer, savvy business man, politician and a great Mayor of Palm Springs. He put Palm Springs back on the map. As Mayor he elevated the town in many ways..He initiated and brought the Film Festival, The Music Festival and so much more increasing the income and benefits to small and large business owners. He was beloved by many and this statue shows the respect and honor he so deserved.
Palm Springs became famous in the 1900s, as a favorite retreat for John Muir and his daughters early in the century, and developing into a refuge for glamorous movie stars into the 1930s. Now, it’s no less fabulous, but has a more robust tourism industry accessible to all! While in Palm Springs, be sure to spend an early morning wandering through the massive, “furry” palm trees in Andreas Canyon (part of the Indian Canyons). The light is especially beautiful early in the morning, and it’s nice to be able to explore the area before the crowds start to arrive around 9:30/10:00am. Afterward, stop at the Moorten Botanical Garden to wander the really beautifully curated maze of exotic desert plants and cacti. You also won’t want to miss some of the famous Palm Springs mid-century modern design and architecture — my favorite spots are the Parker Hotel, the Palm Springs Architecture Museum, Palm Springs Art Museum’s Architecture and Design Center, Twin Palms Estates, Coachella Valley Savings and Loan, Elrod House Interior, and the Tramway Gas Station. Be sure to wander the main street to check out the beautiful mid-century home design shops and funky clothing boutiques, and enjoy the diverse food scene. On your way out, stop at San Gorgonio Pass for a photo-op with a sea of windmills! #awesomepic
Quick girls trip out of the busy city! Had such a blast relaxing in this warm weather!
Palm Springs, USA, is located in the valley of the Colorado Desert and is an oasis city by the desert. Palm Springs has 350 days of sunny days every year and deserves to be the city of daylight. Strolling farther, under the stars, listening to the sound of the desert, let your thoughts fly, this piece of heaven and earth belongs to you at this time.
The most famous places here are mineral springs, ski resorts, golf courses, palm trees swaying by the road and shopping shops and restaurants on Palm Canyon Dr. The most distinctive tourist attraction here is the Palm Springs Rotating Cable Car, one of the most spectacular high-altitude cable cars in the world, comparable to the high-altitude cable cars in the Alps. The cable car takes you from the Tramway Rd. at the foot of the San Jacinto mountain to the 2.5-mile mountain. Visitors can go hiking in the summer and ski in the mountains in winter.
This has also attracted a lot of people to live here, a new generation of Hollywood first-line stars have succumbed to the temptation of the desert and the relaxed privacy it provides. The Palm Springs International Film Festival, held every January, was founded by the then mayor, Sonny Bono, and attracted Clint Eastwood, John Travolta, Ron Howard, and Halle Barry. Leonard DiCaprio (has permanent residence here), Anne Hathaway and other celebrities, Dakota Fanning and more.
