Palm Springs: The Highlights

Tuesday, January 27, 2015

Oh, Palm Springs.

Where do I begin?

There's absolutely nothing quite like Palm Springs, California. It's on the smaller side in some ways, but it's great and big and vast in others. Giant mountains surround the entire area, and - in true Californian fashion - there are TONS of palm trees...and vast amounts of desert, of course.

Here are the things I absolutely loved there:
  • Normas @ The Parker (best donuts EVER)
  • Shopping at El Paseo and Cabazon Outlets
  • The Palm Springs Art Museum (Mom and I got to walk on an installation, and one of the photographs there was based on a character from Final Fantasy IX!)
  • Reading. A lot. I finished two books while there. :)
  • Palm Desert, Yucca Valley, and Joshua Tree National Park (full post to come!)
  • Manhattan in the Desert (best French Dip & Eggs Benedict EVER)
  • Cabazon Dinosaurs
  • The entirety of the Ace Hotel
  • Downtown & Uptown Palm Springs (such a unique area!)

Long story short, this place is pure magic. :)

And now for some more photos!
