2013 CALIFORNIA SCIENCE
EDUCATION CONFERENCE

OCTOBER 25-27, 2013 • PALM SPRINGS

ABOUT PALM SPRINGS

The ultimate desert playground for outdoor adventure, arts and culture, gaming, and entertainment. Whether you are attending a top-quality science education conference, planning a family vacation, a couple who wants a romantic retreat, or want a girlfriend’s getaway…Palm Springs is “Fun in the Sun” year-round. Check out the photos and videos in the Palm Springs Convention and Visitor Bureau media gallery

Nestled at the base of the majestic San Jacinto Mountains, the City of Palm Springs is the ancestral home of the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians. The village atmosphere has been preserved and embellished over the years. The streets, lined with palm trees, invite you to explore boutique shops, art galleries and museums while soaking up the sunshine or dining outdoors among stunning desert scenery.

Palm Springs has since been sprinkled with Hollywood stardust, where the holiday homes of stars such as Frank Sinatra, Bob Hope and Lucille Ball paved the way for the visionary efforts of former Mayor Sonny Bono to occur; namely, the Palm Springs International Film Festival. If that isn’t enough, Palm Springs is becoming the center of “Desert Modernism," with stellar examples of mid-century modern architecture tucked throughout the community and available to enjoy.

Palm Springs offers a wealth of activities and events throughout the year. Soar to the top of Mount San Jacinto on the world famous Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, play a round of golf at Tahquitz Creek Golf Resort, or hike the ancient palm groves of the Indian Canyons. Tour celebrity and mid-century homes, attend fabulous theatre performances, or wind down with a poolside massage. In the evening, stroll the year round Villagefest, then relax with a swim under the stars.

Visit Palm Springs…experience the perfect blend of outdoor entertainment and casual relaxation.
