Palm Springs is a major tourist destination in the Coachella Valley. The city is next to the desert, and the weather is hot and dry for nearly the entire year. Palm Springs is iconic for the warm weather, glitzy scene, and outdoor recreation. Tourists come to relax, party, and play outside. The downtown area (AKA “the Village”) has recently been revitalized, and it is very pedestrian-friendly.

Palm Springs attracts an older tourist crowd than many other destinations (old folks like the heat). The city has jokingly been called “Hollywood’s Waiting Room for Heaven”.
  • THE WEATHER

    Many tourists and residents are drawn to Palm Springs for the warm and dry weather. The summers can get unbearably hot, with daily high temps pushing 110 degrees. Palm Springs is a beautiful winter escape as temps are still in the 70s.

  • THE SCENE

    Palm Springs became a hot destination for Hollywood movie stars starting in the 1920s. The area projects a very unique vibe and that attracts visitors from around the country. The city hosts major annual festivals, including the Palm Springs International Film Festival.

  • OUTSIDE RECREATION

    Palm Springs is loaded with recreational activities, especially golf and tennis. If that isn’t your thing, there are plenty of resorts for spas and pool days.

  • MID CENTURY MOD

    Palm Springs is famously known for its mid century modern throughout the city architecture and residences.

THE WEATHER
  • Winters are the "wet season" which we say only half-
    seriously. There is very little moisture throughout the year. Winter highs hit around 70 degrees with lots of sunshine. Winter is a heavy tourism season. The International Film Festival is in January.

  • Palm Springs gets a decent amount of tourists for Spring Break in March, and Coachella in April. Spring temps can get into the upper 80s. It is a good time to visit, depending on whether you want to join or avoid the spring break and Coachella crowds.

  • Ridiculously hot and dry. If you like setting yourself on fire, you would probably enjoy Palm Springs in the summer.

  • Spring and fall really are the best times to visit. It is basically like summer weather in most other places. October can still reach the 90s.
