Visit Palm Springs
Best Time To Go
The best time to visit Palm Springs is between January and May, when the daytime temperature reaches the 70s and 80s. During the summer months, the weather can be extremely hot, but many find that time of year to be perfect for a morning hike or exploring indoor attractions such as galleries, museums, and shops.
Palm Springs is about a two-hour drive from Los Angeles. If you choose to fly, Palm Springs International Airport is served by 10 different airlines. Once there, it’s easy to explore the downtown area on foot, and you can catch a cab from your hotel if you don’t have a car. The SunBus system is also convenient—each ride costs $1 and buses offer free Wi-Fi.
August is the hottest month, with an average high of 108°F (42°C). February is the coldest month, with an average high of 71°F (22°C).
Know Before You Go
Visitors usually come to Palm Springs to relax by the pool or visit one of the many spas and resorts. But bring some comfortable walking shoes as well, as there are many interesting vintage stores to visit throughout the downtown area. If you’re feeling more adventurous, take a ride up the Aerial Tramway and go for a mountain hike.
