Don’t Feel Stuck at Home in the Desert

Top 5 Things to do in Palm Springs with your Family

Now that school is out indefinitely, finding things to do is always a top priority. This is even more challenging in this unprecedented time with all major attractions and parks closed.  If you are looking to escape the city and hunker down at home in a private vacation rental, Palm Springs might be the best destination yet.  You can get plenty of sunshine and outdoor fun while still maintaining social distancing rules.  Even better, all our vacation homes have private backyards and pools and enough space for the whole family.  You know what that means? Vacation doesn’t have to stop when the kids go to bed (i.e. No more hiding under the covers watching Netflix at 8 p.m. with headphones)!

Come on down to Palm Springs and make some memories.  Here are our top 5 things you can do while staying in Palm Springs this spring.

Go for a walk in the neighborhood.

Palm Springs is known for having some of the best architecture in the world. If you haven’t heard of modernism week, it is a full week of sight seeing that happens in Palm Springs where people come from all over to admire the amazing houses in the neighborhood.  Plan your very own Modernism Week tour with the family and take a tour of all our amazing neighborhoods. Did you know we have 44 neighborhoods and districts in our city?
