Palm Springs — Like many of its perennial visitors (i.e. gays, grays, naturists, and le tout Hollywood) fun-loving Palm Springs seems to get a makeover every year. Long a favorite of weekenders from the Los Angeles basin, the posh cocktail capital of the arid Coachella Valley offers up a versatile and modern slice of vacation life, replete with affordable mid-century modern inns, mist-cooled patio restaurants, world-class golf courses, inventive spas, and rugged desert canyon hiking trails.

Why Go

For over 130 golf courses, a plethora of pools, a range of resorts, and 300 days of sunshine a year.
