ABOUT PALM SPRINGS, OUR HOST CITY
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
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.
