About the Palm Springs Region
When you arrive in Palm Springs and the desert resort cities of the Coachella Valley, you have reached a 640-square-mile vacation paradise, a business getaway, and a great place to play. The exciting cities of the Palm Springs Desert Resorts share a perfect climate and sensational scenery, but each city has a personality all its own. It’s a sophisticated world of unforgettable resorts, gourmet restaurants, couture fashions, and first-class meeting facilities. And it’s also a charming and friendly destination remarkably easy to get to know. It is this unique combination of small-town comfort and big-city amenities that makes the Palm Springs area, quite simply, the perfect place.
While the whole area is often referred to as Palm Springs, Palm Springs is actually a single city—the one that started the tourism ball rolling early in the 20th century. History is part of the draw today, from its charming village atmosphere to its world-famous collection of Mid-Century Modern architecture. Visit Palm Springs.
The Coachella Valley is nine resort cities in one beautiful oasis: Palm Springs, Cathedral City, Desert Hot Springs, Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert, Indian Wells, La Quinta, Indio, and Coachella. Visit Greater Palm Springs to learn more.
