Southern California TurbinesThere's more than what meets the eye in Palm Springs. Thinking of a weekend getaway? You'd be surprised at what all this desert oasis offers vacationers, other than sparkling pools and verdant fairways.
Showing off great variety in the mid-century modern architecture front and known as the date fruit capital in the world, the following are just some of the things visitors to Palm Springs can do.

Wander Through the Farmers Market

Here, visitors and residents can discover the best and freshest locally-grown produce at a reasonable price. Visit the area adjacent to Camelot Theatres from 8:00 am to 12:30 pm during the summer and at 230 E. Baristo Road from October to June.

Take Part in the Village Gallery Walk

Pleasant afternoons can be spent gallery hopping on Palm Canyon Drive. You can enjoy beautiful fine art and sculptures and step inside unique art boutiques here. If you wish for something extra, numerous art fairs are held in Francis Stevens Park and Sunrise Park.

Palm Springs DowntownTake a Tour of the Majestic Windmills

Whether local or visitors, no one can avoid the sleek and towering beacons that stretch along Interstate 10. The modern-day windmill can be seen everywhere in Palm Springs and for a reason!
Responsible for generating nearly 1.5% of California's electricity, the 3,500-plus windmills erected in Palm Springs are usually the first place tourists visit.

Immerse Yourself in Native American Culture

Once a major part of Palm Springs, it doesn't matter if the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians has dwindled to a minority. They're still actively involved with the city, holding much of the land in Palm Springs. Tourists to this area can glimpse the past and lives of ancient Cahuilla Indians at the Agua Caliente Cultural Museum located in downtown Palm Springs.

Visit El Paseo “The Rodeo Drive of the Desert”

The incredibly stylish neighborhood of El Paseo features several blocks of perfectly manicured medians, quaint sidewalk cafes, awning storefronts, and many designer boutiques. Fashion enthusiasts can find big names on both sides of the esplanade (Kate Spade, Ralph Lauren), but the city also gives space to mainstream retailers like Lululemon and Pottery Barn. One can find the hippest fine dining places and casual cafes on nearly every block.

Finding stuff to do in Palm Springs is as easy as finding the best vacation home to spend your getaway at. Perhaps even easier!
