Best Food Best Food

  • While Palm Springs may not boast the same endless buffets Las Vegas is notorious for, the desert hot spot does have its own impressive list of culinary delights. Take in lunch at the Palm Greens Cafe, home to an offering of vegetarian selections including the Greek Wrap. Those seeking out a more “Rat Pack” feel should make their reservations at Johnny Costas, where you never know who will turn up. palm spring map bike ride

  • Palm Springs has an abundant selection of luxury accommodation choices as well as reasonably priced lodges. Sparrow Lodge is a centrally located, hipsteresque boutique hotel that offers a chic vibe. Holiday House is a new option that’s ideal for family stays thanks to their large rooms, beautiful pool area and convenient location.

Road Biking Where to Play

  • Palm Springs is home to a number of great rides, mostly down the valley in Coachella. The area is also home to a 60 mile loop that heads north and comes back around East through Rancho Mirage.  If you choose to head north from Palm Springs keep in mind the strong winds that can easily blow you off of your bike, not to mention the high traffic areas with no shoulders. However, 10 minutes from town, head up and do the Tram for the most epic and time efficient climb you’ll ever do, roughly 2000 ft in just under 4 miles.
