This guide is for anyone who really wants to explore Palm Springs and the cool spots throughout the desert nearby. Whether you're there for a weekend or as long as a week, there's a lot see and do. Included are food recommendations for all price ranges and a list of my favorite hotels, including the one's with the best pool parties (you gotta beat the desert heat)!
