Where to Play

The easiest answer to this is the backyard.  You’re renting a house with a pool and a deck with loungers, stay at home.

If you’re in for a little more adventure, The Living Desert is south on Portola, or head north to the Coachella Valley Preserve.  The Palm Springs Art Museum that’s in Palm Desert is a great way to spend a couple of hours, same with the  Aerie Art Garden.

Head a bit west to Palm Springs, and there’s the excellent Palm Springs Air Museum, as well as the world famous Palm Springs Aerial Tramway.  If you want to take the tram, I highly recommend that you buy tickets beforehand.

If you just want to take a drive, head up Highway 74, if you have a performance vehicle or motorcycle, you’ll love it.  If you don’t you’ll still love it.  The views are incredible, and you’re likely to see some exotic cars.

Want a little exercise with a view, then go visit Palm Canyon.  The full hike is 15 miles long, and it’s beautiful.
