Things to Know
The Palm Springs area consists of seven cities strung along Highway 111, with Palm Springs at the northwestern end and Indio at the southeastern. All area attractions are easy day trips.
The cool months from January to April are the most popular, with autumn a close second. In summer, the heat can shoot past 100 degrees, and some attractions reduce hours or close entirely.
Desert heat is intense, so be proactive about staying hydrated and comfortable. Plan on drinking a gallon of water daily, use plenty of sunscreen and wear a hat outdoors.
