Looking to support local businesses on your next couples retreat to Greater Palm Springs? We have just the itinerary for you. Save the graphic below, and let the romantic adventure begin! (And be sure to start your trip off safely by following responsible travel practices; these local shops offer face masks for you both!)


Grand Central in Downtown Palm Springs

Coffee is always a good idea—especially when sipped on a beautiful patio, soaking up that fresh morning air and watching the palm fronds gently sway. Head to Grand Central Palm Springs (their orange ricotta pancakes are what breakfast dreams are made of) or Jake's and grab some java and a quick bite to start your day.

Once you're fueled up, explore downtown and take in the mountain views on two wheels. There are plenty of biking paths and trails throughout the destination. Plus, many Greater Palm Springs hotels even offer free bike rentals to guests. You can also check out one of these places to grab a couple of cruisers for your morning spin.

After a morning of riding, you'll be ready for lunch — al fresco style. Depending on what you two are in the mood for (fine California/French cuisine or tropical-inspired fare?) you can head to Cuistot or Tommy Bahamas, where socially distanced seating provides plenty of room to safely relax and dine.

No trip to Greater Palm Springs would be complete without making time to chill poolside. Slip on the sunblock and your favorite suit and pick your romantic poolside oasis with one of these places to stay on your next getaway.

EVENINGSummer cocktail in front of pool

Head back to the room and get dressed up for an evening under the palms. Stroll downtown Palm Springs for unique gifts and souvenirs for the family back home. Then end the full (but exciting!) day together by indulging in a romantic dinner at Pomme Frite or Kaiser Grille. Even grab a craft cocktail (we're known for our creative libation outposts). For something truly out of the ordinary, explore these unique dining experiences in Greater Palm Springs.
