I'm staying in East Palm Springs. Is it better to take the I-10 or Hwy 111 to get to the festival grounds?

Will hwy 111 take you to where you need to go street wise? If thats the case go for it, if not stick to the 10 since its a no brainer.

Yeah, Hwy 111 will take me straight to my hotel. But I also have the option of driving to the I-10. Just wondering if one is better than the other.

If you are staying on East Palm Cnyn., I would say take Gene Autry (Palm Dr.) to Int 10. If you take 111, it will be a long drive. Too much traffic. Way too many stoplights.

However, if you want to check out the area and sightsee on the way, 111 has tons of shopping, restaurants, malls, etc.

El Paseo (Palm Desert) is like Rodeo Drive. The River is a nice shopping center. Westfield Mall is indoors and has tons of shops. Restaurant Row, in Rancho Mirage has some good restaurants, and they are abundant in Palm Desert. The COD Street Fair has some really nice things for sale.

Hope this helps.
