Find Your Oasis in Greater Palm Springs

With beautiful weather year-round and inspiring natural scenery, Greater Palm Springs’ history as a place of wonder, healing and adventure runs deep. For over a century, visitors have traveled to this Southern California oasis to be kissed by the sun, moved by breathtaking mountains and amazed by unique cultural experiences. And its allure as a vacation destination has only grown greater. Today, you can be adventurous above the clouds with a ride on the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway. Be soothed with a soak in natural hot springs. Be playful on and off 100+ golf courses. And be enlightened by the stories and artwork that adorn historic city walls.

Regardless of how you find your oasis (maybe it’s spending an afternoon soaking up the sun by a sparkling pool, climbing to heights you’ve never reached before or living every hour like it’s a happy hour), each of the nine cities that make up Greater Palm Springs—Palm Springs, Desert Hot Springs, Cathedral City, Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert, Indian Wells, La Quinta, Indio and Coachella—offers space to play, unwind, reconnect and just be.
