Do you ever have the urge to get away from the gloomy weather, away from the fast paced cityscape or take a break from a stressful working environment? The city of Palm Springs immediately pops up in my mind as my favorite go-to destination for a relaxing chilled and fun packed vacation.
Located about 100 miles east of Los Angeles and with over 300 days of sunshine, Palm Spring has become a popular tourist destination over the years with great outdoor activities like hiking around Joshua Tree National Park, celebrating its annual cultural events ranged from film festival to gay pride weekend, resting at beautiful and serene resorts for daily relaxation, and enjoying a thriving nightlife that well keep you entertained through out your trip.
There are many resorts and hotels to choose from, like my favorite, The Parker Palm Springs for a luxurious stay, to INNdulge resort for a relaxing visit. If you are a foodie like me, I highly recommend Las Cusuelas Terraz, for a delicious Mexican meal and an authentic local experience.
Besides lounging around the pool and sipping cocktails during the day, Palm Springs has so much nightlife to offer and will keep you fully entertained. My personal favorite is Friday happy hour at Wang’s In the Desert, a Palm Springs institution where you mingle with locals and officially kick off the weekend at this local favorite joint. If you prefer high-energy spot, Hunter’s is the place to be for fun and people watch. Another must-see place on my list is Copa bar, where you can sip cocktails and enjoy live entertainment from well-known celebrities line-up.
If you enjoy exploring natural outdoor environment, lounging by the pool for relaxation, or drinking the night away with friends, I highly recommend Palm Springs as your next vacation spot for adventures, recreation and fun.
