Surrounded by four picturesque mountain ranges and inspiring scenery, Palm Springs is the perfect place to social distance. Southwest Airlines will begin new seasonal service to this desert oasis on November 21. Here you can enjoy hiking and biking adventures and explore California deserts. Or if you want to relax, there are plenty of sunny days for lounging poolside or in a cabana. The region benefits from numerous golf courses, pools, and is adjacent to Joshua Tree National Park. The pleasant winter weather makes it an ideal vacation for us Kansans. As they say, every day is a Sun Day.
Take a gondola ride into the canyon and you’ll find yourself gazing over the entire Coachella Valley below. Linger with a stop at the mountaintop restaurant, café or lounge, or hike deeper into the San Jacinto Mountains.
