Palm Springs Photo Diary

Palm Springs is just one of those places for us…you know, the ones that you find yourself coming back to over and over again…the ones that are an easy, mess-free escape.

We are well aware that this is a place that is popular for typically one of two people groups, retirees or festival-goers (either of which we are not). We love that there isn’t too much to do but soak up the small-town vibes, get a heavy dose of vitamin c, and enjoy some piña coladas by the pool.

When we need a break from our sunburns, we love to drive through the neighbourhoods and take in the 1950’s homes which showcases the highest concentration of mid-century-modern architecture in the world (my favourite!).

On our most recent trip, we took the advice of a local and tried out a handful of new (to us) restaurants. The Sands Hotel & Spa has the most quintessential brunch spot called The Pink Cabana. If you ever visit, make sure to bring your camera or regret it forever!

On rainy days (it does happen) we love to explore the Palm Springs Art Museum or play a couple games of bowling at one of the many bowling lanes near by. If you’re looking for an activity on better days, Boomers is one of our absolute favourite places for its old-school mini golf courses (think Adventureland).

For all the best views, take the Tram or visit Indian Canyons (even Joshua Tree National Park is only an hour away and well worth the drive).
