Palm Springs has long been called the "Playground of the Stars.” Considered the most glittering of desert oases, the Palm Springs Desert Resorts is a mecca for relaxation and recreation. Championship golf courses, tennis stadiums and sparkling swimming pools are nestled among lush landscapes, towering palms, natural waterfalls and hot mineral springs. The warm, dry climate provides nearly 350 days of sunshine that attracts over 3 million visitors each year.
Annual area events include the renowned Palm Springs International Film Festival, La Quinta Arts Festival, and nationally-televised sports tournaments such as the Pacific Life Open Tennis Tournament, Bob Hope
Chrysler Golf Classic, and the Skins Game. World-class shopping, fabulous dining, spectacular spas and outstanding cultural attractions augment the desert’s vast array of activities.
