Tahquitz Canyon is a good place to spend a few hours.

Watch your mouth Lurker!

And yes, if you didn't know anything (and you're from Florida).. Palm Springs is mostly gay couples, celebrities and rich people's second (or third) home.

I say this a lot but since your going to be there on Thursday, you need to walk Palm Canyon Drive in the evening when they close down the street for Village Fest. Always enjoy doing it. Wonder if the fabio-looking guy with the electric violin will still be there, he's hilarious.

This most of what you will find in Palm Springs... Gay people.

If you're not gay and don't have a date with you, all you can really do is go out to eat and kill some time driving by the Polo Fields to check out the setup. You can also check out all of the exists and entrances so you can plan you arrival and departure from the festival. I did this the past two years and I've been to the festival without any parking problems.

If you're into hiking or mountain biking, Palm Springs is amazing. I'll be in town for a couple days before hand and I'm going on a hiking expedition and playing racquetball.

Just go to the movies if you can't find anything better to do. That's my plan...I'm going to get to the campground WAY early, set up in a good spot, then go watch a couple movies, eat dinner, and try to get back around dusk.

Hmmm...I love these things for some reason.

I'm taking a long road trip this summer, and I planned an extra day in just so I could arrive in San Luis Obispo on Thursday rather than Wednesday for the street fair.

relax by the pool then walk thru the Village Fest to either Las Casuelas for margaritas or Matchbox or the Pub... all of these places will have the coachella party people hangin out. Palm Springs will be the best spot on Thursday.

I've been going to Palm Springs for decades. My aunt lives there and my family has owned a condo there for many years. Not the same one, they keep upgrading.

The Marriot in Desert Hot Springs is cool. They have a boat ride that goes around the hotel and it has the distinction of being used in a "Saved by the Bell Episode". In fact Screech got a job as one of the boat pilots in the episode. Sadly the most happening night club is in this hotel, the club is called Costa's. They have a Dj Thusday, Friday and Saturday night.

The living desert zoo is interesting. It's not your normal zoo because it is filled with desert dwelling animals. It is definitely a unique experience.

I don't recommend the aerial tramway if you are afraid of heights. So many times I have been on it with people just sitting in the middle screaming and crying. If it's slightly windy the thing shakes violently so if you aren't afraid of heights then it is fun.

Knott's Berry farm owns a soak city water slide in Palm Springs. When Cedar Fair (owners of Cedar Point and other theme parks) bought out Knott's Berry farm they also bought this indie water slide in Palm Springs and made it a soak city and put it under the Knott's brand.

http://www.knotts.com/soakcity/ps/

There are also many Indian casinos. I only recommend Aqua Caliente (near Coachella) and The Spa Resort in town. I don't like the rest.

Also that reality show the Parker was filmed at the Parker in Palm Springs.

http://www.theparkerpalmsprings.com/index.php

And they have the all nude hotel in Palm Springs.

http://www.morningsideinn.com/index.html

Also, there are many strips malls and movie theaters in Palm Springs if you like that.

There is one big indoor mall and of course it's now owned by westfield.

http://westfield.com/palmdesert/

And there is an Imax theater.

If you are driving to Palm Springs lots of people like to stop at the Cabazon outlet malls off the 10 freeway and Hadley's Fruit Orchard and Store (The best thing there is the fresh peanut butter made from fresh honey roasted peanuts).

I think it's gone now but the fake dinosaurs that Pee Wee Herman visited in Pee wee's big adventure were in Cabazon.

That's all I can think of off the top of my head.

Oh yeah and there is lots of tennis and golf in Palm Springs.

The Desert Springs Marriott is in Palm Desert.

The Dinosaurs are still in Cabazon.

Both Spotlight 29 and Fanasy Springs are closer to Coachella than Agua Caliente.

I meant to say Palm Desert, I don't go there much so I don't really pay attention to the city. I was offered a job selling timeshares at Shadowridge but turned it down. What a depressing job.

I'm glad the dinosaurs are still there. Usually when I drive to Palm Springs I'm going really fast and don't notice if they are there. My own fault. :(

I know Spotlight and Fantasy are closer but I don't like them. I was just giving my personal opinion of my favorite casinos. But my least favorite Casino is Morongo on the way in.

03-16-2008, 12:23 PM
The dinosaurs are there, but you can't go inside them anymore. I was able to go inside one probably 15 years ago.

My family has a vacation house there so I know the area well. Palm Springs is a fun place to relax especially when the weather is 85 degrees and the rest of the country is freezing. Go out to dinner go party in the local bars. Check out the art galleries/museum or go hike to the waterfall in Murray Canyon. If you want to go gamble The Spa resort is the best casino in the valley and it's downtown. There is something for everyone.
