About Palm Springs
AN OVERVIEW OF PALM SPRINGS
Nestled at the base of the San Jacinto Mountains, the beautiful desert resort city of Palm Springs is an international destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts, Mid-Century architectural admirers, and fans of the glamour of Golden Era Hollywood. Palm Springs is located approximately 110 miles southeast of Los Angeles and 140 miles northeast of San Diego, making it an ideal distance for Southern California residents to escape for a quick getaway weekend or the perfect locale for a second home.
The ancestral home of the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians turned Old Hollywood retreat; Palm Springs offers the opportunity to enjoy a unique slice of Southern California history, with sunny skies guaranteed almost daily. With an average of 350 days of sunshine and less than 5 inches of rainfall annually, Palm Springs is the ultimate location for sun lovers who enjoy a dry, arid climate. Palm Springs lies on the western boundary of the Coachella Valley, welcoming the 2.5 – 3.5 million tourists that visit the desert resort cities annually.
THINGS TO DO AROUND PALM SPRINGS
Palm Springs residents and visitors alike can enjoy hiking, biking, horseback riding in the Indian Canyons; take jeep tours of the Palm Springs Wind Farm or nearby Joshua Tree National Park, or take a ride up the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway for year-round outdoor adventures.

Palm Springs is one of the most sought-after destinations for golf with over 100 private and public courses available throughout the Coachella Valley, including the famed ODonnell Golf Club, the oldest course in the desert.
