The Top Attractions in Palm Springs

The desert getaway of Hollywood legends such as Frank Sinatra, Marlene Dietrich and Frank Capra, Palm Springs has long conjured up glamorous images of celebrities at play. Iconic hotels, poolside cocktails and chic nightspots are certainly part of the package, but there's a lot more to this resort town than meets the eye. You might be surprised to learn that Palm Springs boasts a vast concentration of Mid-Century Modern architecture, or that it's the date (as in the fruit) capital of the world. Of course, you're going to want to pack your bathing suit and some sunscreen, but don't forget your hiking shoes and perhaps even a parka if you plan on going to the top of San Jacinto Mountain. From Elvis's Honeymoon Hideaway to some serious shopping opportunities, you'll have more fun under the sun than you could have ever imagined.
