The former playground of the Hollywood Rat Pack and golf-clothed retirees, Palm Springs still attracts cultured mods with its blend of retro-chic and modern architecture. The heartbeat of the 300-square mile Coachella Valley, the city has an abundance of things to do that are as eclectic as the diverse natural surroundings. Explore the mountain trails, hit the ski slopes, take in the city attractions, or relax by the pool. Yet despite its fun-filled promise, the laid-back culture and warm climate generate a slow pace of live that allows you to relax your body and mind. Whatever you want to do, you will find it in Palm Springs–but there is so much to do, you may not have the time to fit it all in.

Location: A Desert resort

Situated 172 kilometres east from Los Angeles, the desert resort of Palm Springs in California’s vast Coachella Valley is easily reached by road, rail, and air. The scenic drive from L.A. only takes a few hours, and Amtrak runs a train service three days a week.

Business: Hotel conference suites

Given its attraction for tourists, retirees, and young hipsters, business in Palm Springs has a focus on the tourism and service industries together with an abundance of film locations. Several of the bigger hotels feature meeting and conference facilities with all the latest mod cons.

Culture: Iconic homes

The illustrious past of Palm Springs has left a legacy of homes to visit, some dating as far back as the 19th Century, namely the McCallum Adobe, which was home to the first settlers of the area. The O’Donnell House historic tour gives a unique insight into an iconic home of the 20th Century and features a modern art gallery. However, the most famous home, the Presley Estate where Elvis lived with Priscilla, no longer conducts tours.

Activities: Canyons of scenery and ancient history

The Coachella Valley was once home to native Indians before scrupulous white men slaughtered them, but the small community that still exists offers tours to the ancient ruins where you learn about the fascinating traditions of this almost-dead culture. The surrounding canyons and nature preserves present a host of trekking options, whereas in the mountains, the snow is fresh enough to enjoy a day’s skiing. Sports fans are spoilt for choice with tennis courts and beautifully kept golf courses, whilst visitors looking for tranquillity should head to the botanical gardens or a health spa.
