 photo IMG_4516-5.jpg When you think of Palm Springs you either think of three things: Elderly people with leathery skin living out the retirement dream, gay guys who wear Hawaiian shirts that you want to be BFF with or the Coachella Music Festival-an overload of hipsters and trend setters. While all three of these Palm Spring stereotypes are alive throughout the year, it is also an amazing getaway that is only two hours away from Los Angeles. It is warmer, relaxing and has barely any traffic which is why my friends and I have scooted there several times over the last few years

If you find yourself there, here are a few things I recommend:

IF YOU ARE SPURLGING- Parker Palm Springs.
If you have some money to spend ( or free credit card points that need to be used- Aheem- what I did!), stay here. Only downfall of this, is that you may not want to leave the property during your entire stay. It is THAT good. Designed by Jonathan Adler, this hotel is more like an adult disneyland equipped with a “Lemonade Stand” bar and one of the best spas in the city-Palm Springs Yacht Club ( where “a stiff cocktail” is recommend during treatments). The hotel amenities alone include Blistex, L’Occtaine and Hermes Soap ( ACTUALLY). Tip: The cleaning staff leave their carts unattended in the hallways for minutes at a time. You didn’t hear it from me…

If you are a 20 or 30 something looking for a fun, filled weekend with friends, either of these crash pads will do. The Ace hotel is a hipster dream. You may have the urge to buy a fedora when you are there but even if you are not a hipster, does not mean you will not love it! It has a bohemian camping feel to it ( I mean there is an RV parked out front at all times and a 70’s diner within the grounds) yet feels handcrafted and thought out. The Ace is decked out in khaki’s and neural tones, while The Saguraro hotel makes you feel like you are living inside a highlighter pack. Serious bright colours paint the walls of this hotel and the pool scene is not to be missed. The restaurant within the hotel is pretty top notch as well.

Native Foods CafePalm Springs is pretty close to LA after all so you shouldn’t be surprised that one of the best and most popular lunch spots is a vegan joint. Think fresh lettuce wraps and rice bowls…so yummy

CitronKelly Wearstler’s hip Palm Springs Bistro! Need I say more? It is decked out in canary yellow and white design paired with mirrored walls….very old Hollywood Glamour. 

While Palm Springs is more of a “don’t leave the lounge chair” type of escape, there are many activities for those who don’t like to sit still.
☻Hop on the Palm Springs Arial Tramway. You can get some amazing bird eye views of the valley!
☻Most of the hotels offer bike rentals so hop on a bike and take a stroll through the town. There is no better way to see the city!
☻There is a serious art scene in Palm Springs. There is a reason they host “Modernism” Week there! Check out the Palm Springs Art Musuem or take a self guided tour of a few of the galleries within the city. Check out more here
☻Hike the Pacific Crest Trail in San Jacinto State Park and Wilderness.

    Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your

    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.
    The design and style look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon.
