Visit Palm Springs
The spectacular deserts of Southern California have an appealing beauty, with hidden oases, jagged canyons, snow-capped mountains and, in spring, carpets of wildflowers. Palm Springs, at the heart of the Low Desert, is the region's most sought after resort, a mix of retro-chic architecture, luxury boutique hotels, championship golf courses and world-famous music festivals.
Eclectic & inclusive
All framed by the mountainous beauty of Coachella Valley, it's a long-time favourite among hipsters, hikers and the Hollywood elite while the vibrant LGBT community is testament to one of California's most inclusive and forward-thinking towns.
A gateway to the great outdoors
With such natural beauty on its doorstep, the region around Palm Springs has become a popular year-round destination for outdoor adventure. The stark Joshua Tree National Park lies to the east, while further north, the Mojave Desert, and its Death Valley National Park centrepiece, is one of California's greatest secrets, all too often overlooked by visitors.
