Introduction to Palm Springs
It's a sophisticated world of unforgettable resorts, gourmet restaurants, couture fashions and first class meeting facilities. And it's also a charming and friendly destination remarkably easy to get to know. As a matter of fact, it's impossible to get lost - you just have to point yourself at the mountains; they are never out of view. Wherever you go, there's usually a parking space right in front, or you can just toss the keys to an efficient valet. Amiable waiters remember your name and helpful shopkeepers - often the owners of the establishment - give you extra special attention.
We're proud of our friendly locals, but can't take much of the credit - if you lived here, you'd always be in a good mood, too. It is this unique combination of small-town comfort and big-city amenities that makes the Palm Springs area, quite simply, the perfect place.
When you arrive in Palm Springs and the desert resort cities of the Coachella Valley, you have reached a 640-square-mile vacation paradise, a business getaway and a great place to play.
The exciting cities of the Palm Springs Desert Resorts share a perfect climate and sensational scenery. But each city has a personality all its own.
Palm Springs - The whole area is often referred to as “Palm Springs,” but it’s actually a single city — and the one that started the tourism ball rolling at the turn of the century. History is part of the draw today, from its charming village atmosphere to its now world-famous collection of Mid-Century Modern architecture.
