Years ago, Palm Springs was the weekend refuge for many famous Hollywood film stars and movie moguls.

Some of these magnificent villas still stand as a testament to the glamorous days when Palm Springs was the vacation retreat for Hollywood's legends.

 
 
 
Today a visit to Palm Springs is an opportunity to dine in world class restaurants, lounge at legendary boutique hotels and discover why mid-century modern enthusiasts gather here yearly. Apart from this, the major attractions of Palm Springs are its climate, its golf courses and its elegant vacation resorts. Temperatures can get quite hot during the summer and a bit chilly during winter, but climate is quite pleasant most of the year. Rainfall is always sparse, and blue cloudless skies are the norm.

Visit Indian Canyons, located on the tribal lands of the Agua Caliente natives, it is a delightful place to see some of the great natural beauty of the desert geology and desert foliage. These picturesque canyons featuring a natural desert oasis provide a great place for walking and hiking. A rotating aerial tramway located in Chino Canyon can take you up 2,700 meters (8,500 feet) to Mount San Jacinto State Park where the temperatures is often 30 degrees cooler and the hiking trails are surrounded by giant redwood forest.
