Our Palm Springs Rentals
Why stay in a hotel when you can have your own Palm Springs Memorial Day weekend rental home? It’s a no-brainer: for about the same price, you get so much more. You’ll have all the space you need, for the whole family to stretch out, tons of privacy, and still plenty of resort amenities. We’ve got a wide range of places to choose from in Palm Springs, so whether you prefer a cozy cottage overlooking a golf course, or a sprawling private villa with your own fabulous pool, it’s up to you. Either way, you’ll benefit. From your own fully equipped kitchen just right for whipping up entire meals, or just a quick snack any time of day or night, to spacious living room areas where everyone can stretch out and unwind at the end of a full day, you’ll feel like you’re in a home-away-from-home. Come enjoy the magic of Palm Springs!
Get the Lay of the Land
An absolute must-do in Palm Springs is to ride the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, up to Mount San Jacinto. Aboard the world’s largest rotating tramcar, you’ll get unparalleled views as you ascend 6000 feet up the mountainside. Bring your hiking shoes, as your destination at the top offers over 50 miles of hiking trails to choose from! Guided nature walks are also available during the summer season, so you can get information from expert volunteers as you enjoy the scenery. There are also restaurants at the top for when you get hungry after your hike!
Visit the Stars
Palm Springs has historically been the private retreat of many Hollywood celebrities, and you’ll find plenty of celebrity tidbits around the area. Why not make a day of it, and track some of them down? Start with a visit to the Alexander Estate, also known as the Elvis Honeymoon Hideaway, as well as “the House of Tomorrow.” This mid-century modern classic was his Palm Springs dwelling and was the inspiration for some of Graceland’s suites later on.
Next, stop by and take a selfie with the statue of Lucille Ball, located in the heart of Palm Springs at the intersection of Tahquitz-McCallum and Palm Canyon Drive. Then head over to the Palm Springs Walk of Stars, which is usually a bit less crowded than the downtown Hollywood version, and snap pictures next to the stars of your favorite icons! You can easily enjoy the rest of the day spent wandering about downtown, popping into shops and sampling the local flavors.
Stop by a Unique Museum
There’s no doubt about it: Palm Springs is a mecca for art and artists. You’ll have no problem finding tons of incredible art galleries and museums to check out here, including the wonderfully curated Palm Springs Art Museum, the Architecture and Design Center, and so many more. But what if you’re in the mood for something a bit different? Well, Palm Springs has a museum for that too! The Palm Springs Air Museum is rated as one of the best air museums in the world and offers a fabulous assortment of planes from World War II, as well as the conflicts in Korea and Vietnam. They also offer plane rides on Saturdays, so check out their website before planning your trip! Another great stop is the Agua Caliente Cultural Museum, where you can learn about the history and culture of the original inhabitants of the Palm Springs area. A much larger museum is currently in the works, so look for that the next time you visit!
Take a Tour
There are some very unique tours available in Palm Springs that can help you get out and see the town through the eyes of a local. Perhaps the most unusual of all is the Social Cycle, a 16-passenger group bicycle that gets you from stop to stop, party style! If you’re traveling with a large group, you can book a private tour for the whole bike, and your guide can lead you to the spots you’d like to go. Restaurants and bars are popular destinations, though your destination can be anywhere you choose! There are also public tours that require a minimum of eight people to operate (because you do actually need to pedal the bike in order for it to move!). Social Cycle is a great way to see town from a slower pace than in a car but is so much more fun than walking!
Have fun planning your perfect Palm Springs Memorial Day weekend!
