I was hoping my first visit to Palm Springs might involve a well known music festival... But alas... It was a family vacation which turned out to be even more fun AND relaxing (which I doubt anyone ever put Coachella in the relaxing category). We stayed at an amazing Airbnb, which Palm Springs is full of and most include pools and mid century furnishings. We ate our way through town and explored every well known hotel and restaurant known to man. Day tripped to Joshua Tree with a much needed bite at In and Out burger on the way home. Sipped date shakes, swam all day and even learned to skateboard (penny board to be exact). It was a trip back in time and every bit as colorful and delicious as I expected.
Eat- The Purple Palm, Cheekys, Workshop Kitchen and Bar, Shermans Deli, Mr. Lyons, Kings Highway Diner, Norma's
Visit- Joshua Tree, Moorten Botanical Garden, Parker Hotel (the grounds are unbelievably gorgeous)
