If you're traveling to Palm Springs this week, come hungry. Palm Springs Desert Resorts Restaurant Week runs through Sunday, which means you can enjoy a three-course meal for $26 or $38 per person.

Restaurant weeks are a great excuse to be more adventurous about dining without spending a fortune. More than 90 restaurants in the Coachella Valley are offering restaurant week options this year. You'll find menus on the event's website, which filter by price.
