Enjoy Palm Springs as a calm, quiet environ while taking a dip in the rooftop pool at the Rowan Kimpton, where you can relax and soak in the serene desert-scape views.

The Palm Springs Aerial Tramway takes riders to the top of Mt. San Jacinto, where air temperatures average around 30 degrees cooler than on the valley floor below. Marvel as palm trees transition into alpine forest, and step off the tram to a breezy, cool day.

The Palm Springs Art Museum, a historical and contemporary art mecca clad in stunning modern and postmodernist architecture, provides a nice — and aesthetic — respite from the desert sun.
