Tourist Information

Palm springs is a tourist destination
in its own right.

Since the early 1900's, movie stars and wealthy business people have flocked to Palm Springs because of its temperate climate. Indian lore abounds in the Palm Springs area and visitors are attracted to the Indian Canyons and other habitat of the Native American. Jeep tours take visitors to these Indian canyons and the picturesque range of mountains that surround Palm Springs.

The number one tourist attraction is the Palm Springs aerial tramway which climbs to an elevation of 8,000 feet for several climate zones. Visitors to that spectacular mountain top can view the entire Coachella Valley. The temperature at the top of the tram is generally 30 degrees cooler than the valley floor.

In addition to golf and tennis, visitors to the valley enjoy horseback riding, hot air ballooning, hiking, and visits to fine restaurants.
