Cool Things To Do in Palm Springs

  • Palm Springs has a lot of hot things to do (of course) but it also has a lot of cool things to do. The coolest (literally) is the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, which whisks you from the dry desert floor 5,873 feet up into the cool, moist climate of the San Jacinto Mountains aboard the world's largest tramcars. Another cool spot is Indian Canyons, a beautiful retreat from the sometimes-glitzy atmosphere of Palm Springs. When the streams are running, children enjoy splashing in the water and it's a popular area for picnics. Another way to get wet is at Knotts Soak City, a 21-acre oasis sporting a 1950s Southern California beach theme and 22 water rides and attractions, including a wave pool and lazy river. For a look at the future of our energy supply, jump on an Eco Adventure Tour through a forest of wind turbines. It's hard to escape the heat in Palm Springs (at least in the summer) but it's always easy to find something cool to do.
