Top 10 Things to Do in Palm Springs

Palm Springs is known as the Date Capital of the World

Visit a Working Date Farm

It's a fact: Palm Springs and The Coachella Valley are the "Date Capital of the World." And, by that, we don't mean canoodling twosomes, but rather the fabulous date fruit. Shields Date Garden, which dates back (no pun intended) to the 1920s, is a no-frills operation. The family-owned business still grows its own dates without the use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides. The storefront features every date imaginable, and you can taste test, too. Out back is the café where you can enjoy breakfast or lunch. No visit is complete without ordering one of Shields famous date shakes.
